Easter Flowers Cards - Minimal Coloring

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Today I have two cards to share, both Easter cards that use the same sketch.  Neither card uses much coloring at all and I finished both just this morning.  I like how they each are the same, but a little different style.

You have already seen me use this stamp for other Easter cards here using chalks and here using Oil Pastels.  I stamped the daffodil in black ink, and then paper pieced the flowers.  I used just one green marker to color in the stems and a yellow to accent the flowers.

Supplies: I Brake for Stamps March Daffodil, Versafine Onyx Black Ink, Echo Park Victoria Garden paper pad, Fiskars edge punch, sentiment is from a Canadian Maple stamp I got from the craft store ages ago.

I stamped the Lily of the Valley multiple times in two colors of green ink to get a patterned paper.  I also distressed the edge with green ink.  

Supplies: Our Daily Bread Lily of the Valley, Avery Elle Lemongrass, Truffle and Jungle inkpads, Bundled Sage Distress ink, Echo Park Victoria Garden paper pad, Hero Arts CL051 Sentiment, Fiskars edge punch

Thanks again for your visit!   I would love to hear from you in the comments!
