Happy Easter!

I made these cards for a couple of challenges. The first challenge is birthday at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge. I used a set from Simon Says/Mama Elephant called Summer Garden.
It has fun flowers and sentiments. I used a Happy Birthday from Endless Creations for the challenge and then the thinking of you from the set for the other two cards.
I am playing around with distress markers and watercoloring. I had watched a few tutorials on this and not having great success so looks like I will have to go thru and watch them again.
The brighter card, I colored on the watercolor paper directly with the markers and then used my watercolor brush to pull the colors out. The other two cards I did a combination of pulling ink off my acrylic block and putting some ink directly on the image. I stamped and embossed these with Wow! Silver Pearl Embossing Powder!
The second challenge is a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches .
Happy Easter to everyone and happy stamping!
