Magical Easter!!



This is for High Hopes Challenge 18. We were to make a Spring or Easter card. I don't have any Spring or Easter HH stamps yet, mine should be here in the next few days!! So, I looked over the HH stamps I DO have, and decided that I could make an Easter card featuring this little magician.

I used Basic Gray's LilyKate for my designer paper, a Mellow Moss base, and a touch of Bashful Blue for under the main image. The sentiment is Making Memories rub ons, the flower is a Prima, and the trim is more BG Lily Kate. I painted the white hydrangea Prima, and the rest of the image with Niji watercolors. They have an incredible shimmer!!! As a final touch, I added lots of Cotton Candy Stickles. Also, as you can probably tell, there are Angel Wings Shimmerz highlights all over this card!!

This is really pretty. I had to google niiji watercolors and wow they are super affordable. It doesn't look like you need to use water and as they don't look like a concentrated color.
