Happy Easter!!


The Dutch Dare card challenge this week was to make a card using Green and Yellow. These are not colors I use very often, but at least they aren't absolutely horrifying to me like Brilliant Blue and Real Red are! The base here is a beautiful piece of Bazzill Bling. I just can't get enough of that stuff!! The bunny is a Hero Arts stamp I got in an eBay lot last year. This is the first time I've used him, and I think he's really cute. The next time I use him, I'll turn my watercolor paper over. I don't like this Canson wc paper because of the deep and obvious lines. Not only do I find them visually distracting, but very detailed stamps don't stamp well on them. I won't buy this pad again, but I have it, so it's what I use. All the rest of the paper is from a HOTP Citrus pad. The chipboard is American Crafts, the flower is a Prima, the metal bunny is from my local variety store. The ribbon and brads are from HOTP's Citrus embellishing pack. I went a little crazy buying those when I first discovered them, and now I rarely use them.

I think your bunny is a girl, Carla -- or else a cross-dressing boy. (sorry, did I say that?) Or else a boy bunny from the turn of the century, cuz they dressed more like that, then.

I'm just not ready for EASTER yet, my brain isn't even finished with 2008 at this point, I'm still writing it on everything.

My mom would adore this card -- she's been transfixed by the Beatrix Potter animals all her life, and this reminds me of that. Did you see that movie?

I like the look of the watercolor paper here. Gives it a bit of a distressed old time feel which is totally suitable for this stamp. Really lovely card. I love how everything came together.
