Happy Easter

 I love the arrival of Spring seeing daffodils popping up.  Here are two Easter cards I have made using the same backing papers and digital image but as you can see they look totally different.  The digital image I have used is a new release from Delicious Doodles called "Daffodils 2".  
I have coloured both digital images with Promarkers, distressed around the edge with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and then inked with Tim Holtz's Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint distress ink.
The backing papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs Paper Lace, Spring Daffodils and Mini Dots.  With the Paper Lace layer I distressed with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and then inked with Tim Holtz's Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint distress ink.

The first card has been finished off with a stamped sentiment, doily coloured with Tim Holtz's Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint distress ink, ribbon bow, Stickles glitter glue, card candi and little die-cut butterflies from a Joanna Sheen butterfly confetti die.

The second card has been finished with a stamped sentiment, die-cut leaf embellishment coloured with Tim Holtz's Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint distress ink, Stickles glitter glue, washi tape, ribbon bow, card candi  and little die-cut butterflies from a Joanna Sheen butterfly confetti die.
