Hello and welcome! Today's card was made for this week's Splitcoast Color Challenge, which was to use the colors Pretty in Pink, Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze. What better stamps to use for such spring-ish Easter colors than the new Easter stamps that just arrived from Magnolia-Licious?
I colored Tilda with Bunny and Wagon With Eggs with Copic Markers using the colors you see above. I know that there are color charts matching Stampin' Up! colors to the Copic shades, but I find you really need to blend different colors sometimes, hence the whole boatload of markers you see lol.
I love these stamps so much and really like how the coloring came out, but I heard *tink tink* as the card layout came together (that is the sound of the wheels falling off my artistic wagon). I feel my design is off balance; in my rush to get the card out for the challenge I produced this - blah! Oh well, the stamps are just adorable, aren't they? So fun to color.
I added a bit of Signo White Gel Pen to the speckled eggs in the wagon, and also to the flowers in Tilda's basket and hat. Final touches include embossing the textured pink cardstock with Stampin' Up!'s Bella Toile using Bridal Embossing Tinsel by Ranger, a Fancy Pants felt flourish, and some Hero Arts pearls.
