Happy Easter

Hello there and happy Easter!

This morning I finished up a card that I started yesterday but had to remake since I accidentally smeared black pigment ink all over it.  And I mean all over it.  What a mess!

I started by stamping the Eggciting bunny and egg from Neat and Tangled, using Copic-friendly black Gina K. Designs Amalgam ink, onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock.

I colored the bunny with E51, E53, and E35, with a bit of R21 for the inside of its ear.  For the egg, I used RV52, RV63, V05, and V06 for the violets, and BG11 and BG15 for the aqua details.  I finished with a bit of white Signo Uni-ball gel pen to add some highlights to the top right of the egg.  Using a Brother ScanNCut2, I cut out the image and set it aside.

For the background I started with an A2-sized piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock.  I used YG07 to create a grassy ground and then I placed the bunny and egg image over the ground to get an idea of where to create a shadow.  When I’d decided, I used YG17 to lightly sketch the outline of the shadows before filling the in. I used some small stamps from the Neat and Tangled Cottontail Cuties stamp set to stamp some tufts of grass and then used used YG07 again to fill them in.

For the sky I pulled out the Clouds stencil from My Favorite Things, a foam blending tool, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink.  I blended on several layers of clouds and then stamped the sentiment, also from the Cottontail Cuties stamp set, in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.  Then I trimmed down the panel using the largest die from the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1.

To assemble the card, I backed the bunny and egg with foam tape and adhered the to the background.  Then I adhered the panel to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!
