Yet more Easter

Yes, there is more Easter. Just when you thought it was safe to venture out again. I just adore this card. The sentiment is especially endearing. I used the cards that were included in a DCWV kit I purchased from HSN and simply cut the cards apart. The back side was in a solid complementary color. It was like double the value for me.

I took this opportunity to take advantage of the design by doing some doodling on the flowers and tear drop/paisley shapes. Of course I used my Sakura gel and metallic pens to bling out the patterns. I really need to pick up additional

packets of these pens. They are truly addictive.

I did not have to do much in the way of deciding where to add my accents. They screamed at me all on their own.

Although it does not clearly show on the card above, the bunnies are extremely reflective. I used the Sakura clear glaze pen and colored over the bunnies that I had stamped in StazOn black.
The heart and the swirls around the bunnies were enhanced with American Crafts glitter pens.

I love Easter and Spring. It is a new beginning and a rebirth. There is no better way to celebrate the risen Christ. This is a time when seemingly fragile plants force their way through hard, cold soil and brave the elements to let us know that change is on the way.

Our world becomes filled with brilliant color and a wide array of nature's beauty. This is what gives us more ideas for colors to use in our lives. I take the time to ponder how I can use these combinations to add life to my cards and scrapbook pages. Inking in the name of love. You can't go wrong.
Until then.
