Easter Cards

I made some very simple easter cards last month, while trying out some supplies I had on hand at Bram's place. He has a stack of A5 cardstock in pastels, which I folded double and used as cards. I used pieces of white cardstock to draw or write on and stuck them on the front of the cards.

My drawing style is pretty childish when it comes to easter bunnies. ;-) (Or anything else, really!) I think I used colouring pencils and markers for the first one. I used Neocolor I wax crayons for the second one, tracing the edges with markers. I used a spray fixative to keep the drawing from smudging and matted it on blue paper.

I played around with lettering, trying out Edding metallic markers (not too happy about the easter eggs I drew with them but they are cool when it's just letters or lines!) and a Faber-Castell broadpen in a nice shade of blue. I quite like how my writing turned out!

I started playing with Caran d'Arche Neocolor II water-soluble wax pastels, Prismalo aquarel pencils and Fibralo water-soluble markers on watercolour paper. I love the combination of those materials, using the pencils or markers for some details and bolder lines and the pastels for larger areas and more subtle colours. We've become big fans of Caran d'Ache lately!
