pastel colours and Easter

Hi there. I am struggling to blog as often as I would like. After I visited the Less is more challenge this week, it gave me kick up the back side to finish off my Easter cards. 

All the stamps are by Chocolate Baroque. I stamped them in watering can archival ink as I didn't want them to be harsh since I was using a  pastel palette.

The above card is coloured with polychromos pencils and a tiny bit of yellow sparkle pen which is really hard to photograph or rather I don't have the skills :).

The sentiment is a digistamp and die cut with Sue Wilson banner and inked lightly around the edges with milled lavender.

This image I coloured with a damp brush and distress inks and I think it is my favourite one.

 I used the same sentiment only this time I edged it with twisted citron.

Again here I used polychromos pencils. Then I used the spritzer tool and spritzed some twisted citron in background which added some interest to background.

Sentiment here is by Claritystamp, stamped in watering can and clear embossed

So again I'm going to be entering these at The LIM challenge and hopefully today I left enough white space.

So I would like to enter the following challenges:

Less is More - 3 pastels: orange, yellow and green ( card 3)
Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge - blending: all 3 cards have blending as different                                                                             hues of same colour were used to create depth


  1. I love all of these Theresa, and the Harlequin Rose looks fabulous in that oval frame and so prettily coloured. Love the stitched sentiment banner too. The two different daffodil cards are gorgeous too but I think my favourite is the second which has the delightful arrangement of daffodils. x

  2. Beautiful makes and the daffodil is just stunning.

  3. What fabulous cards! Such elegant designs with the layers and grey stamping/pastel colour palette. The florals on the first card are so pretty, and the daffodils really pop! Love them! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)
