I do not become conscious about when Easter is until receiving cards from my two close German friends around spring. Years back, I would just purchase cards from stationery stores, but I came to a realization: there are only two cards! If my friends took the time to pack me some Easter candies and sent them across the Atlantic, I should be about to make these cards.
The apparent challenge is that I am not artistically talented. What I conceive in my mind rarely transpose onto paper. One of the few things I can do is to practice and to get help from embellishment such like stickers and punches.
For this year’s card, I thought about giving the combination of brushpen and fountain pen ink a try, since I have so many varieties of green.
Here are the results:
|Let’s try out the idea before I ruin a ream of paper.|
|Inside of the card, thanks to stickers.
The letterings are done by Sakura Glitter and Souffle pens.
|My draw-by-dots tree and three origami bunnies.
Let’s hope the bunnies will survive the cross Atlantic trip.
They will be boxed instead being in an envelop.
