Easter Blessings

Happy Day to all,

I don't make many Easter cards. I just needed one more and here it is:


I was firstly inspired by the gorgeous photo at Inspired by Little Things-where they are celebrating their 50th Challenge-congrats! I loved the peachy colours of the flowers and the white background curtain and used this as my base idea. I followed the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch, using score lines and splashes of paint for the finer details.

I decided to use the 3 pastels challenge at Less is More. This proved harder than I thought as I don't have any pastel watetcolours. However I had fun mixing the stronger colours with my white water paint to give me pastel colours and I like how it turned out.

The flower is from Altnew and the sentiment from Verve

Have a fun day.

I will enter this into:
Less is More-3 pastels
