Lili of the Valley Challenge & Truly Scrumptious Challenge

The challenge over at Lili of the Valley this week is Easter. I had a couple more Easter cards to make so I just thought I'd include them both under this challenge. This card is from the cutie Elzybells sheep set. I coloured with watercolour pencils, cut out with scalloped rectangle nesties, added some doodling and mounted on pink card. I can't remember where the paper is from. Ribbons are from Joanna Sheen and Laura Ashley.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Elzybells); Watercolour pencils; Assorted cardstock; Paper (?); Black fine liner; Nesties; Flower & brad (Poppicrafts); Ribbons (Joanna Sheen & Laura Ashley)

This is my other card for the LOTV challenge. I used this gorgeous Penny Black stamp again coloured with watercolour pencils, cut out with nesties, doodled and doubled mounted on cardstock. Papers are from Papermania. Sentiment is Pink Petticoat.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Penny Black); Watercolour pencils; Assorted cardstock; Paper (Papermania); Black fine liner; Nesties; Sentiment (Pink Petticoat); Flowers (Ebay & Poppicrafts); Brad (Woodware)

My final Easter card is for the Truly Scrumptious Challenge. It's very late, I did it in plenty of time and then forgot to post it! Anyway here is the sketch.

And here's my take on it. I used these lovely Art Impression watercolour stamps again with a mixture of watercolour pencils, ink pads and brush markers. Image and background shapes cut out with nesties. All papers are by Laura Ashley as are the ribbons. The sentiment is Pink Petticoat.
