Easter-Spring Extravaganza Blog Hop

Good morning to all my fellow crafty friends!! Welcome to the Easter-Spring Extravaganza Contest Blog Hop.

If you have hopped here from the talented BARB'S BLOG, you are in the right track. If not, you may want to go back to ANGIE'S BLOG to start this hop.

This hop is for the Easter-Spring Extravaganza Contest. Contest is open until April 19th at 11:00 PM EST. Make sure to check the rules over at the Magnolia-licious Highlites website or scroll down to the bottom of this post for details.

I am so excited to be able to join this blog hop with the regular Magnolia-licious Designer Team Members. For this hop, I made an Easter card and hope this will give you some inspirations. This time, instead of colored the image using my favorite Copic markers, I colored it using the Prismacolor Pencils. To be honest with you, this is my first time using the Prismacolor pencils. I bought the box of 48 pencils and used them with the Gamsol odorless mineral spirit for blending with paper stump to color this Little Bunny Tilda image purchased from Magnolia-licious.

First I cut a circle ring and wrapped it with some ribbon and laid Tilda down as she sits inside the ring, then I spread the flowers around this ring. (the color is more close to the pink scheme, because I took this picture under the yellow light bulb and it look more to the brownish scheme.) You can see her correct color on the pictures further down of this post.

Here is my finished card.

Carol said...

Cabio this is adorable. I was watching HSN one night and saw Martha Stewart's art director guy showing where he turned the edge punch around and did it the opposite way and made a great ribbon. Your punch reminds me of that. I love the colors. You did great with the pencils. Wow! Fantastic! Mahalo for sharing
