easter cards

Thought I'd share the easter cards I've made over the last week or so :-) The easter chicks are elzybell stamps - the one with 3 chicks is coloured with prismas and sakura glitter & glaze pens, mounted onto dark pink card, paper is retro floral (can't remember who makes it lol) mounted onto green shimmery paper, pink ribbon from stash (its actually spotty but turned it over cos the plain side matched better!) and all mounted onto yellow base card, sentiment is elzybells.
The one with 2 chicks is watercoloured with some cheap felt pens from whsmiths - was having a play and scribbled some ink onto acetate and watercoloured with a waterbrush - was pleased with how they turned out - looks great and cheap too (pens were £1.49 for 50!!!) the only downer is that when I tried using purple/lilac colours with the waterbrush it seemed to split it down into blue & pink and made everything look tie dyed lol
The green tilda was coloured with the pens too, cut out and mounted onto a pale green oval (from the majestic? keepsake board cos I haven't got nesties or a cuttlebug lol) the chicks are from the elzybells stamps - just cut a few out and coloured them, easter wording is printed onto patterned paper, cut out and glittered, flowers, gems and dark green backing from stash
I decided to try something different for the next chick one lol - stamped onto brown card, coloured with prismas, used sakura glaze for the beaks and feet, and sakura white souffle for the daisies. mounted onto a green nestie I found lurking left over from some I had at christmas, then drew around the edge of the circle with a yellow prisma. the backings are a free download but I can't remember where from at the minute.
Last, a double dose of tilda!!! backing papers are another free download from shabby princess promise collection. centre oval is from majestic board again, using a shimmery irridescent white paper which shines pink, chicks are elzybells again, pink tilda coloured with pens, green with prismas..... daisy flowers punched from backing paper scraps, easter printed as before onto patterned paper with a bit of glitter added for extra sparkle, purpley flower from stash :-)
