I originally was going to post this yesterday, but then duh! it hit me, wait one more day and post the Easter card ON Easter!! LOL! I made this card for Taheerah's Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge #13.
From the inspiration photo i took away the bunnies and the pink and yellow colors that dominate. I actually had a different plan, but when i sat down and started it morphed into something else.
I did a lot of masking and stamping to make my bunny background. I wanted it to be a really full background, so i had 3 bunny masks and 1 ear mask going at once. When the background was don;t i wasn;t sure what i wanted to do with it, color it, color one or two, add a paper peiced bunny.... the ideas were swirly, but i didn;t want to mess it up!!
As i was thinking about it, i took a pieces of water color paper and stamped, then embossed the Happy Easter in white. Then i used pink and yellow watercolors to color the strip. I thought it was hard to read the sentiment so i added some shadow to the Happy. I added a couple pink sequins and a yellow sequin.
When that was done, i thought that the background really needed something so i decided to just color the bunny noses and leave it as that. Kind of less is more!! (and i really didn;t want to try something and have it not work out and all that work down the tube!) Last I added the watercolor panel to my card base with foam dots.
Thanks for stopping by! And i hope you have a wonderful Sunday!!
