Magnolia Easter card
An Easter card in pinks and yellows for a change. This is really a departure from my usual colour combinations, but was dictated by the backing paper and the luscious daffodils and cherry blossoms from WOC. The image is from Magnolia (Sir Stamplalot) and is coloured with copic markers.
I went on a copic colouring course last weekend at Kintbury with Wendy Kadzidlo from Stamps and Memories. She's a fantastic teacher with endless patience and a quiet, calm approach, and I really learnt a lot. I'm hoping my hair colouring will now look better, but we'll have to wait and see! Can't wait to go on the next course, as I'm enjoying working with the new techniques so much. I also used the markers to colour the flowers, sentiment and leaves; and added a little more yellow to the backing papers to match my main image.
The plain cardstock is my favourite Coredinations from A Maze of Memories, and the pink is diecut with an MS punch: an oldie but a goodie! A little Stickles glitterglue and some charms from my stash and we're ready to rock and roll.
