Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style: Easter

We're bringing Easter designs for you in today's Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style hop. You can see Easter supplies under "Occasions" at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

I've used Our Daily Bread Designs "Happy Easter" set, available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. Such a pretty daffodil image, and so easy to color.


Copic Sketch markers were used to color the daffodil which was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. A mix of Copics and Prismacolor Pencils were used for the shading and background. 







Spellbinder Petite Oval dies are a perfect shape for the long, slender bloom.

 Papers used today: 

Kaisercraft "Sweet Nothings" (one fabulous pad, can't get enough of it!) and gleaming "Gold Silk" Mirror Cardstock.









To make this springtime card an Easter card, I decorated the inside of my design with a beautiful sentiment that is included in the "Happy Easter" set.












All linked supplies are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
