Paper Nest chickens

About a month ago Christine of Paper Nest Dolls asked if I’d like to make a card for her. Of course! I’ve seen her cute images around for a while, just never gotten around to colouring any of them. This was the perfect excuse! I picked this adorable image with three little chickens. They’re great, aren’t they! It is called Little Chicks Emma.

The papers and sentiment are by Lili of the Valley, flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts which is also where I purchased the lace. The image has, as usual, been coloured up with my Copics.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, (hair) E41, E43, E44, E47, E49, (chikens) Y000, Y04, Y08, (dress) Rv00, R22, R27, R81, R83, R89, Y000, Y04, Y08, C1, C3, G40, G82, YG03, (grass) YG03, G82, G94, G99, (sky) B0000, B000, B91. And a white gel pen.

My easter buddy

Easter is around the corner. I only just realised this when I opened the fridge yesterday and saw the “easter mystery” cartoon on the milk carton. Don’t ask, lol. Anyway, as I have next to no time before I go away for two weeks tomorrow, I had a spur of inspiration and made a card this morning. Why do I always feel most inspired when I have the least time to craft? Maybe it’s because it looks like I won’t get much else done today as I’m feeling rather unwell. Oh well, the card did get done!

I have used a giant scalopped circle to make the base of the card. I’ve used some plain green card stock and some patterned paper from First Edition paper to go with. I have used a pre coloured Sylvia Zet image from The Hobby House. Isn’t it adorable? The stamped sentiment is from Lili of the Valley, the flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, the ribbon is from a local shop and I have used a fair bit of distress ink.

Happy Easter everybody!
