Tulip Bunny

     I'm getting close to the end of my Easter cards and have begun using images which could be for a birthday, for Mother's Day, or for a general spring theme.  Today, our challenge at Outlawz Twisted Thursday has an "Easter/Spring" optional theme (we're always 'Anything Goes') so this darling image worked perfectly.  Can you tell I'm finally using those Lily of the Valley stamps I got more than a year ago and hadn't used until this last couple of weeks?  I'm on a roll with them now.  :-D


I used the basic sketch at The Sweetest Thing
but flipped it from top to bottom.


     To color this one, I used a combination of chalks, Copics, and ProMarkers, then I die cut the image and two mats.  That's an older die set from QuicKutz which I haven't seen in the shops for a while so it may have been discontinued.  I love the lacy, 'doily' look of it.  I added satin ribbon for an embellishment and the bow is tied separately, then adhered.  Very CAS and easy to make.  Can you believe everything came from scraps on my work table?

     Come play with us this week, won't you?  It's "Anything Goes" but you can add the optional twist of "Easter/Spring" if you like.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Cute as anything and I love the dies. Have a good day. Good thing I only have a few Easter cards to make because I'm just starting them today. YIKES!!!!I forgot all about making them before I went on vacation. I guess I was too much in vacation mode. Have a wonderful day.

I do love those die cuts too. Your bunny image with the tulips is darling and you coloured it so beautifully. I think it is cool that you are combining different media in your coloring techniques.
Hugs,

Such a pretty card, love the dies, great idea to cut a little off one, (I presume) cute image too.

Wow- I love this card- the pop of red on the rim of the white layered on the black is awesome- and it really brings the focus in to the beautifully colored and quite sweet image!
