This is exceptionally 'late for me' to be making Easter Cards. I'm a 'do ahead' person. Yesterday I made a card for the Easter challenge at Flourishes. (you can see it HERE) Since the stamps were already inked, I thought that this would be the perfect time to make Easter Cards. I stamped several of the Flourishes images, then went in search of different color palettes for inspiration. I discovered a 'black, white with a TOUCH of brown' at the Play Date Cafe. These colors are not in my comfort zone but I thought I would give them a try.
The image was fussy cut after being colored with Copic markers. Spellbinders and MFT dies were used for the shapes. The background was dry embossed then Versamark was lightly applied on the raised areas before embossing with Stardust embossing powder.
This is another card using the same stamps but with a different color palette.
And another color palette.
And finally the last card using different colors once again.
I used a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches for all of these cards. I just turned it upside down.
When I did a search for 'lilies', I was amazed at the number of different colors that are available for lilies. Which card is your favorite?
I think I'll go shopping for some lilies to plant in my yard. This time next year...I won't have to do an Internet search...I'll just take a stroll to my garden.
Back to creating cards in my butterfly Garden.
