Happy Easter

Für meine heutige Karte habe ich nach langer Zeit mal wieder meine Pastellstifte hervorgeholt.
For today's card I dusted off my long neglected pastel pencils again.

Der kleine Hase von Purple Onion Designs ist schon etwas älter, aber für Osterkarten immer eine ideale Wahl. Ich komme um diesen knuffigen Kerl kurz vor Ostern jedenfalls nicht herum, wenngleich er definitiv auch für Baby- oder Geburtstagskarten gut geeignet ist.
The little bunny already is an older stamp by Purple Onion Designs but it's simply ideal for Easter cards. Me, at least, I just can't get around this sweet guy at this time of year, although you could easily use him for baby or birthday cards as well, of course.

Vom Aufbau her ist die Karte ziemlich schlicht. Im Mittelpunkt steht die Koloration. Dadurch, dass ich Pastellstifte verwendet habe, leuchten die Farben auf dem getönten Kraftpapier besonders gut. Der Karton von Crafter's Companion ist ziemlich grob, was viele, die einen glatteren Cardstock bevorzugen, oft von der Verwendung abhält. Für Bunstift- und Pastellkolorationen ist die gröbere Struktur jedoch ideal, daher verwende ich ihn für diese Zwecke sehr gerne.
The design of this card is pretty simple. The focus clearly is on the coloring. Having used pastel penicls the colors appear extremely bright on the kraft cardstock. The one by Crafter's Companion I'm using here is especially rough which is why a lot of cardmakers, who prefer a smoother cardstock, tend not to use it. However, the paper's structure is ideal for coloring with colored or pastel pencils, that's why I love to use it for this purpose.
