A Bright and Cheery Easter

I have the habit of forgetting my old stamps! Even those only a year old! Last Easter, I bought a bunch of Elzybells and stamps and totally forgot about them until I was going through my wood mounted stamps the other day and found them...again...

You cannot really tell on this card, but after I colored the image with my colored pencils I used my Atyou Spica glitter pens and it really glitzes it up! I colored the dew drops with permanent markers.

This paper is BRIGHT! When I took this picture I would leaning toward red and pink, but ended up using the yellow (sorry I did not take a picture of that!) This one wild sheet is what I used a little of on the front of the card. Hope your week starts off as a good one!

stamps: Elzybells
paper: SU! Pink Flamingo, Summer Sun, Cameo Coral
Accessories: Atyou Spica Pens, Dew Drops and permanent markers
technique: colored pencils, OMS
