Happy Easter

Today I just felt like colouring up this cute CC Design image.
I don't think I have inked her up before.
I tried to match my Copic markers to the papers.
I usually just colour an image and then find my papers. I have a lot of pattern paper so it usually isn't a problem finding matching papers.

Here is a close up of the image I coloured.
She is so  cute. I think her stockings look like a decorated egg :)
The paper around the image is just white cardstock that I coloured dark brown with my marker.
I was to lazy to walk downstairs for the 100th time to get some brown paper, lol.

And now for the money shot ;)
I wanted to add tiny eggs instead of the brown brads. But that was hard to do as I didn't have any ;)

Here is the inside of the card.
Again I used left over paper from the front of the card for the inside. Its the best way to use up scraps of paper.

Again here is the finished card.
As much as I like this card, I am drawn more to the brighter colours.
These papers look a bit washed out to me....

Here is the sketch I followed.
I have a Sketch board on my Pinterest page. Once I have done the sketch on my board I am also pinning the finished card. 

Onto My Day:
Woke up to snow.
Yup, it was snowing pretty hard. Big fluffy white flakes of snow.
My girls only searched for eggs outside once in their lives, and that was over 12 yrs ago.

Same day as yesterday. Wayne playing video games and me telling him what to do and where to go, lol. As I coloured and made some cards.

On a sad note, tonight is the last episode of the Walking Dead for season 3 :(

I hope you all had a great Easter weekend with family and friends.
Also a creative Sunday :)

  2. What a cute card! I think the little girl figure stands out nicely against the muted background tones!! Thanks for stopping by my blog and Happy Easter! xo Evie

  3. Beautiful card! I like the brown brads, they match to polka dot paper.
    Sorry you got snow!

  4. She's a cutie and her leggings do look like eggs.
    I will have to remember the tip about picking pens to match the paper!!!

  5. Oh No not more snow!! Hope we don't get it! I love your card - the image is beautiful and I love the papers. Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend.

  6. Adorable card! Snow! Oh my, hope spring comes soon.

  7. Your card is cute...the eggs bot so much;)

  8. What a great card, she is adorable! I use to be too lazy to walk downstairs. Now I'm too lazy to walk UPSTAIRS. Lol! Love the eggs, I wonder how she did those? We always do the egg hunt inside, but the hunt at my mom and dad's was outside... That is way too much snow my friend. You need to come down south for a bit ;)

  9. your card is just awesome- i love that image!!! i am so sorry for all your snow- we are having snow showers today and it is opening day for cincinnati reds baseball- it is supposed to be warm!!

  10. I love your card....she is just precious! Sorry about all that snow...we are supposed to hit 80 today which is way too warm in my opinion, but then again I do live in Texas!

  11. The image is so cute just love it. I would love some snow have been waiting for us to get some but we only get rain :)

  12. Cute card, hope you get some spring weather soon :)

  13. This is so cute Tracy, love the image and lovely papers. Aud x

  14. Clearly, the card is waaaaay cuter than the snow!

    We actually had a nice Easter day most of the day. We usually can't hide eggs outside here either, but probably could have this year if we would have known it was going to be nice. The weather person was wrong and predicted cold & rain all day.

  15. I am baaaack! Gorgeous day here today- just a hoody was plenty! Snow is still past my knees though. :0(
    Happy Easter! Love that her little stockings are Easter egg-ish.

  16. Your coloring is always so amazing, Tracy. Adorable image and a great take on the sketch.

  17. I love the card! The way her pants match the paper is so cute!

    I can't believe you guys got snow! I'm jealous!!

  18. She's so adorable. Loving your card.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
