Easter Wishes from LLLC

Morning guys! :) TGIF, huh?! This week has dragged on forever - looking forward to a weekend of crafting. Got a lot of behind the scenes DT work to be cracking on with, as well as a few orders. :) People like to keep my on my toes, that's for sure!

Today over at LLLC, Team Friday have got some inspiration for ya in the form of..


I decided to use Easter Marci for my card - she looks so cute. Love that big hat and those frilly socks. Too cute!! I've followed the newest Sketch Saturday sketch, and used some more paper (scraps) from Sassafras Indie Girl collection. :) Good girl, ain't I?!

I've coloured Marci using ProMarkers and fussy cut her out.
Skin - Blush, Soft Peach, Rose Peach, Baby Pink
Hair - Buttercup, Vanilla, Mustard
Hat - Tan, Nutmeg, Cinnamon
Socks - Antique White, Putty
Blues - Dove Grey, Powder Blue, Arctic Blue
Greens - Meadow Green, Apple
Yellow - Pastel Yellow, Mustard

I've been trying something new - colouring Luka and Marci's eyes. Sorta giving them even more character. Only a really thin line of two, maybe three colours which blend well together. What do ya think?!

Check out the rest of my teamies creations over on the La-La Land Crafts Blog and be sure to link up in the Customer Gallery if you play along. You could be the lucky winner of our monthly prize. :)

Take it easy, and enjoy your weekend - whatever you get up to.
