Two Color Ways


Easter's almost here and I still need a few more cards.   So today I made two cards with the same image and layout.  I am not a fast card maker unless I have it all planned out.  In this case the first card took a some time but the second card was pretty quick.  The images were colored with different patterned papers in mind.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Saturated Canary "Easter Dress" digi
ink - hp printer
paper - Stampin' Up "Perfect Plum"card stock; My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline - Fiddlesticks" dp; Recollections "natural" card stock; My Favorite Things "Sour Apple"; Recollection "Green" card stock; Bazzill "Pollen" card stock; My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline - Howdy Dowdy" dp
miscellaneous - copics; Stampin' Up eyelet border punch; Martha Stewart grass border punch; bling; pearls; divine twine; bunny charm

  14. Hi Chris, oh these are adorable! I love your colouring, it's perfect, and your colour choices are fabulous too. I am not the fastest of card makers either - don't know how some people manage to blog a card a day - if I did that that's all I would be able to manage in a day!!!
