Hoppy Easter!

Good morning! I really appreciate you coming by and I apologize for not posting the last three days. I don't know where the time goes on the weekends! I cleaned and created, but didn't get around to posting!
On the other hand, is there a better collection for Easter than Magnolia's Hoppy Easter? I think not!! This is #3048 Bunny Tilda! She is on preorder right now (sorry!). The cart is #601 Wagon of Eggs and is available at Magnolia-licious! AND here's the PAPER!
I colored the wagon and cut it out with a rectangle nestability. While in the die I used my 1 inch stencil brush to brush Aqua Mist ink around the rectangle. Then I used a little Distress Vintage Photo right over it so the color wasn't so bright. When I do a background this is how I do it-I don't own the compressor for my copics.
The wagon is colored with Y21, E31, E33, E25 and E29. The grass is YG01, and YG25. The eggs are BG0000, BG10. The wheels are BG10 and BG72. Miss Bunny Tilda herself was colored to match this wonderful Magnolia paper! It isn't really pink, it's a perfect match for SU's Pale Plum! I used markers RV0000, RV93 and RV11.. My card is an unusual 4 3/4" x 51/2". And finally, is my attempt to one of the beautiful flower clusters all you creative, talented crafters are doing- I'm not very good at it!
Have a great Monday! Me, I wish I didn't have to go to work today! But, oh well, it's off to work I go! Hi, Ho!
Thanks again for stopping by! Love ya!
Cheryl

Hi Cheryl!

your colouring is stunning. I can't take my eyes off your beautiful wheels. They look so perfect and such a good idea to colour them this particular colour. I love this Tilda. she is so cute. You haven't overdone it with flowers either giving Tilda full attention.

Hi Cheryl, what a cute Tilda, that face! I love that little egg cart, I guess I will have to get it sometime to add to my collection. Such sweet colors and you did great with the flowers. I am new to coloring with the Distress Inks, and flower clusters too. But I am practicing when I have extra time. Cute card! Blessings to you, Rea

Tilda looks just too tuckered out to walk back, so why not take a ride after hunting all those eggs!!
Way darling...
