Happy Easter

I love the Happy Easter Bunny stamp which retired a couple of years ago.  It was only featured in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue and then disappeared.  I kept it simply because of the exuberance which the bunny shows.  He reminds me of Snoopy doing his Spring dance.

The CAS Colours & Sketches challenge is featuring a colour challange which is perfect for Spring colours and, as a result, is perfect for this stamp set.  I stamped the large image onto a piece of Mixed Media paper and then cut it out using one of my oval dies.  Colouring didn't take long.  I used my Stampin' Markers for the flowers, eggs and the ribbon around the bunny's neck.  The colours wound up being very vivid.  For the bunny, although I didn't use any colours on him, I wanted something to make him stand out a bit.  I therefore used my clear Wink of Stella marker over his entire image, leaving a portion of the ears and his tummy.  For those I turned to my Aqua Painter and the Sweet Sugarplum ink pad.  I added a very light wash over those area plus the tail.  Isn't it incredible how the light wash winds up very pink in comparison to the same colour in the Stampin' Marker?

After mounting the oval on a base of Heavy Whisper White with Dimensionals, the card was finished.
