Easter Card....

Good morning all, hope you are all keeping nice and cosy warm, as we have quite a bit of snow at the moment! So I'm keeping everything crossed that it clears up and we can still get to the NEC tomorrow lol.
 
Today's card is another Saturated Canary image, this time it's Lily, Bo and Peep. So cute ;o)) and perfect for an Easter card and to will spring here lol.
 
 
I coloured the image first using Flexmarkers and Promarkers and then cut around the shape just leaving a narrow border.

 
Next I inked the front of a 6x6 scalloped edged card using Tumbled Glass stain and Shabby Shutters distress inks. I used a small flower shape just to hold over the page in a few places to give me the cloud effect.

 
Then I tore a piece of paper to give a wavy line and held it in the middle of the card to give me an edge for the horizon line. 
 
Next I inked around the edge of my image with the same inks and sat her on the background.

 
I added loads of flowers, just putting different layers together from some ready made flowers. I just really liked the colours and thought they matched well with the spring theme. All they needed were a few pearls in the centres to finish them off.

 
I also added a few of the Papermania green Blitters to give it a bit of bling.

 
I finished the card by stamping the greeting on to a piece of white card using Bamboo Leaves Memento ink and putting it on the top of the card with foam tape.
 
Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.
 
See you soon
