Easter..but not 'in your face' Easter
I love to make Easter cards as they give you a chance to get some lovely Spring colours going and brush away the winter blues (something which is badly needed if you happen to live in the UK!)
That said, sometimes I don't want to be too obvious about Easter and this is an example of just such a card........there's a cute LOTV bunny but no eggs and no chocolate!
I don't know who the artist is but I just love the way that he/ she draws their animals with the fluff lines around the edges, and, this time I wanted to keep that soft textured look in my colouring, so I did a bit of dotting with my blender pen and I think it has actually been quite successful on this occasion (not sure if I would be able to do it again though!)
As you can see from the close up, I have also been practicing grounding the character with a bit of shading at the base. That's the great thing about this hobby, there is always something new to learn, don't you think?
And now to move on to the myriad of challenges that I would like to enter with this card:
