Easter two ways

It has been a very long time since I have used my colour pencils, and as I needed to make two Easter cards I thought I would use my pencils and also colour on a grey paper, something else I have never done. And, what better way to play than with this new Showers and Flowers stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. 
The one thing I found with the pencils is even with several layers, I feel it is not as vibrant as I would like. I do note that it would be brighter done on white cardstock ... next time!
This is done using Zig brushes, and the vibrancy is noticeable. I am probably biased, but I do love watercolour and find it so much easier to get the colours the way I would like them to be.
Both cards have the panel attached to the card base using fun foam and both have Nuvo Jewel drops used.

Thank you for visiting today.
