I don’t make many Easter cards — just one for my mum and one for my other half’s sister because she loves bunnies. For my mum, I decided to go down the floral route.
The hungry hamster is another of those printed-out digis that have been in my to-colour pile for quite some time. When I’d finished colouring him, I fussy cut out his sunflower seeds to take the photo for Instagram, but then I started to worry that he would get separated from his seeds so, rather than putting it straight in the coloured images stash, I decided to make a card (which may well end up being my youngest nephew’s birthday card next month).
And then you realise that there’s a really good reason why the other Mother’s Day card didn’t get posted to the blog. Although you wrote up a load of other cards and scheduled them, you didn’t actually get around to writing the post to go with this card. So, a couple of days late, here is the card I made for Mothering Sunday for my mum.
There’s nothing like a young girl’s birthday to give you an excuse to break out the cute images and pink Copics 🙂 Okay, so a pink dragon might be a bit cliched, but it was fun to colour!
My go-to provider of floral digi stamps is Power Poppy, who make the most gorgeous floral arrangements, but every now and again it’s nice to colour something simpler that I can add a few tweaks to.
This was another of those digi stamps that had been sat on the side for ages, waiting to be coloured. I did need a wedding card, but it would have been tricky to turn these bunnies into something in keeping with that particular Harry Potter themed event. So I decided that it should be a card for the mother of the bride (who loves bunnies) instead.
I finally came up with a design for the wedding card! I had been pondering ideas ever since we were told that my other half’s niece was having a Harry Potter themed wedding. Should I go the mixed media route and create a bouquet around a wand, should I do a card with patronuses, or winged keys or… or… or… so many possibilities.
