Good Saturday afternoon blog visitors, it’s a bit chilly here. I’ve spent the last few hours making a card for another challenge, but today I’m showing you the Easter card I made for the challenge over at the Passion for Promarkers blog. You can find all the information HERE. I need to use my Promarkers much more, so the challenges will get me motivated. This week the challenge is to use pastel colours only, so I decided an Easter card would be perfect. My inspiration was two films; ‘Easter Parade’ & ‘Printemps a Paris’ – Springtime in Paris.
- 8×8 white, scalloped-edge card
- Promarkers – Pastel Yellow, Pastel Green, Pastel Beige
- Memento ink – London Fog
- Kanban clear stamps – Jasper collection & bird & butterfly
- Kaisercraft ‘Bonjour’ 6×6 paper
- Elusive Images patterned backing papers
- Sakura Gelly Roll pen – Clear Star
- Fabric flowers, large pearl brad & ribbon from my stash.
Following my experiment on the D tag for Chocolate Baroque, I tried not to put too much on this card. I wanted the dress form to be the main focus. I didn’t want any black on the image & using ‘London Fog’ by Memento worked very well, the Promarkers coloured over it really well. I spent an age colouring the image & even though my colouring technique is not yet perfect, I think it looks pretty good.
I think the ‘easter greetings’ stamp is from Personal Impression – I’ve lost the wrapper. I added a few touches of glitter here & there on the Eiffel Tower & on the edging of the frame.
That’s all for now, thank you for looking, let me know what you think of this. I should be back tomorrow with something for the Artistic Stamper challenge.
