Just Add Ink have a new Challenge this week. They have asked that everyone create something that is just Easter. I have already made a few Easter things, so I had to think of something new. It really wasnt that hard to think of something else because I had just bought a new Easter Stamp the other day and I have been dying to use it. The stamp I bought is called Bunny Friends by Penny Black. The rabbits on this stamp are just so adorable. I made two cards for this challenge. One card using bright colours and the other card using softer colours. I prefer the softer colours, but my children like the brighter colours.
With the first card I made I started with the brighter colours. I embossed a piece of Kiwi Kiss using the cuttlebug folder Victoria. I then layer a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock on to the embossed Kiwi Kiss. I stamped the Bunny Friends stamp using Chocolate Chip ink on some Watercolouring Paper and then coloured the image using my aqua pen with my Stampin Up markers. I used the colours Only Orange,YoYo Yellow,Gable Green, Ruby Red, Orchid Opulence, Chocolate Chip, Pretty Ink Pink, Pixie Pink and Old Olive. I then made a bow using Chocolate Chip Grosgrain, a green button and a piece of twine. I adhered the ribbon to the layered cardstock. I used a greeting from Eggcoutrement stampset. First I stamped it on a piece of Kiwi Kiss using Kiwi Kiss Ink and then again on Whisper White using Chocolate Chip. I trimmed the greetings and layered the Chocolate Chip over the Kiwi Kiss greeting over each other and placed in the lower right hand corner. I then adhered the layer cardstock to a base card made from whisper White cardstock. With the second card I used more subtle colours. I used fairly much the same process above except I used the Cuttlebug folder Swiss Dot and used the marker colours of Pale Plum, Blush Blossom, Bashful Blue, Pretty In Pink Pixie Pink, Chocolate Chip and Certainly Celery. I made a bow using Pink Pirouette Striped Grosgrain, a pale purple button and a piece of twine. I adhered the ribbon to the layered cardstock. I used a greeting from Eggcoutrement stampset. The cardstock colours I used were Pink Pirouette, Whisper White and Pale Plum as well as a Rhinestone.
