Leave a Little Sparkle for Easter

I'm working on Easter card for my 6 grandkids right now. As I've maybe told you before, I don't have stamp sets right now with Easter images so I either have to do some punch art or pick some images that each child will like and turn it into an Easter card.

I started with my two granddaughters, who are 5 and 3 years old. They both like My Little Ponies so I thought I would get out my Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set for them and colour the images up with pinks, purples and blues. I have an Easter greeting from my Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, so that will turn them into Easter cards.

  • I stamped the images and sentiments in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used my Stampin' Blends alcohol markers to colour them. The colour combos I used were Dark and Light Pool Party, Dark and Light Highland Heather, and Dark and Light Flirty Flamingo.
  • Using the Pool Party Combo on the horses' bodies just for shading gives the appearance of a white horse.
  • I used the Dark marker at the roots of the mane and tail and blended it out with the Light marker towards the ends.
  • Wink of Stella on the flourishes, mane, tails and horn gives a magical feel to the image. I don't know if you can see it on the following photo. Wink of Stella is notoriously hard to photo.
