Vintage Easter egg

CR00524 square

I may not have made that many cards this year, but I still manage to take my time writing them up for the blog. Though Easter was less than a month ago, so it could be a lot worse… And I only made two Easter cards this year — this one for my mum and a bunny that will be up on the blog later this week — so there isn’t too much to catch up on.

I nearly bought this digi for Easter last year, but I ended up using a different Power Poppy image instead. I do love the vintage styling on the egg, and Power Poppy flowers are always gorgeous, and I am really happy with how the colouring turned out… I just wish I had come up with a better card design. The sequins help, but it could be better.

It’s part of the reason I haven’t made a lot of cards this year — along with the desire to actually use up some of the cards in my stash. I’m still loving my Copic colouring and completed the whole of the 12th Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. I’ve done a lot of painting and mixed media and art journalling with the Square-a-thon challenge and the Wanderlust classes, so my mojo has been in working order (touch wood, don’t tempt fate etc). It’s literally just card layouts that my creative brain has been struggling with…
