Eggs for the Easter Bunny

     Friday again and that means another new challenge theme at QKR Stampede.  Of course, we're always Anything Goes but we also give you an optional twist if you want to use it and this week the theme is "Bling or Sparkle."  I thought it would be a great time to get my first Easter card done for this year.  I used "Gathering Eggs" as my image.   Just an FYI, that link will take you to the new store which now combines all the different brand names (Artful Stamper, Biblical Impressions, Eureka, PK Glitz. and QKR Stampede) owned by this company on one site!

     This QKR Stampede image is colored with my ProMarkers and cut with a die from Spellbinders, one of my earliest die sets.  I used another die from the set to cut the black mat.  I used glittered paper behind the image and then cut three egg shapes from striped paper and added microfine glitter to them.   BTW, that blue glittered paper came from the inside of a candy box lid, duly recycled so that it wouldn't go to waste.  :-D

     I 'dyed' the bow that shade of blue with a ProMarker so that it would match the blue on the rooster.  I wanted a CAS design and I think this one came out nicely.

     I hope you're going to play along in our challenge this week.  Remember, while you're not required to use a QKR image on your card, if you DO use one (or even a Eureka image), you 'll be entered into a separate draw just for QKR images and that increases your chances of being a winner by a huge amount.  Good luck and come play.  NanaConnie

This looked like me trying to get through the last two weeks around here! LOVE this! Such a cute and fun image and a awesome card!
Been thinking of you and all that bad weather that California is having. Hope you're not in the immediate area that's getting it so bad right now. Stay safe!

This is fab and fantastic colouring too. Today I found a tiny finch egg on the floor of my aviary. It was lying right next to my rabbit! Haha! Is Ricky the Easter Bunny?

Christi Conley said...

How cute!! I always wondered how the Easter Bunny got his (or her) eggs! Your coloring is perfect and the sparkle strip of paper adds such a sweet twist ~ Christi xoxo
