From the Bunny

I have been busy working on my DT assigments, clearing my calendar for the NEW RELEASE (coming soon....May8) goodies to arrive from Reverse Confetti. I'm caught up for the next few weeks, so I had a little time to play, yesterday. I was inspired to play along with two challenges with this one card. 

First is the Simon Says Stamp Wed. Challenge-Animal Anitics. With Easter being on Sunday, I thought I'd whip up a cute card to give my in-laws when we arrive for Easter Dinner.  Bebe Bunny and a sentiment from Carton Cuties were the perfect match (All links will be listed below). 

I'm also linking this to the current Seize The Sketch challenge no.18. In place of the oval, I opted for the rounded rectangle from the RC-Class Act Confetti cuts

I used Tim Holtz watercolor paper and stamped her with Archival Black ink from Ranger. I used my Distress Markers to make her pretty. I am finding it easier to watercolor with these markers if I scribble the color I'm using onto an acrylic block and THEN pick up the color with my aqua painter. 
Here are the colors I used to color her. 

Since the card was on the soft and pretty side, I went ahead and stamped my sentiment with Grout Gray ink. I love this color of ink and cardstock. Oh, and Insulation Pink, too. Great, soft colors that make terrific neutrals. 

One last detail shot. The embellishments. I used the Petals 'n Posies Confetti cuts to customize my flowers. I used more papers from the Beloved paper pack (coordinating with my background papers). Some pretty Fresh Mint sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, and a lasso of pink burlap twine. 

Have a great Friday! I know I am. Hubby and I are off to be one of the first riders on the NEW roller coaster at Kings Island (we live about 25 minutes from there. lucky, I know), The Banshee. It's the worlds longest inverted roller coaster.  Sadly, the boys are in school but Tim and I didn't want to miss out. I have to admit, I'm a little nervous. Wish me luck!
