Lilac and Apple Green Easter Basket Kid

Here are my Easter cards for this year. I decided to go cute this year and used one of my recent Clipart Fairy purchases.


The image, Easter Basket Kid from The Clipart Fairy, was printed onto Xerox Colotech Gold card (my choice for Copic colouring) and coloured using Copic markers:
  • Basket: YG11, E31, E35, E39, E57
  • Eggs: YG11, BV00, BV04, BV31
  • T-Shirt: BV00, BV04, V91
  • Bows: BV00, BV04, BV31
  • Skin: E00, E21, E51, R20
Highlights were then added using the Papermania Snow White gel pen.


The corners of the image panel were then rounded using the large XCut corner rounder punch, and matted onto lilac card.

A panel of light green card was embossed using the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder and was joined to a panel of the lilac mini polka dot paper from the DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Boy Mat Stack with a length of white woven ribbon and light green organza ribbon.

This was then matted onto a panel of the lilac card.

The sentiment was computer-generated and matted onto lilac card.

I also made a version using Nestabilities classic oval and classic scalloped oval dies but the card looked a bit unbalanced to me.


Here are the challenges that I am entering these cards into:
