Greetings friends. All this week I have been sharing cards with a lot of coloring. I created a lot with my Zig markers because they are so portable. I could stamp out a bunch of images, take my markers and waterbrush with me and color anywhere when I had some down time.
Today I want to share something different. I want to go back to the basics with stamps, paper and ink. I only used two colors of ink and absolutely no additional coloring.
First, I want to talk about the background. I created my own background using two different IO backgrounds. Remember, you can layer as many patterns as you want and different colors of ink to customize your own look. I started with the watercolor lines background and stamped it with pink ink on a pink card to get my stripes. Next, I stamped the watercolor dots on top of the stripes using black ink:
Finally, I stamped the bunny and greeting using the same black ink and added some black patterned washi tape to the left side of the card. That's it! Very clean and simple. I also have been going through a hot pink and black phase, so I thought it would be fun to try an Easter card that wasn't in the typical pastel palette of colors.
