Lessons from Dad

      I'd never really thought about how the next generation of Easter Bunnies were trained, or even about the fact that there must be 'next generations' since bunnies (Easter or otherwise) aren't all that long-lived.  But when I saw this image from Beccy's Place, a freebie for their April challenge, I knew immediately that Father Easter Bunny was schooling his children in the Easter Bunny arts.  :-D

     Colored with ProMarkers and gel pens, then cut with a QuicKutz die.  The aqua framing was also cut with a QuicKutz die.  Both of the dp came from a Recollections stack.  I left it rather CAS because I wanted the bunnies to be the focus.  I know, I know, many people insist that only "white" open space counts as CAS but I prefer to accept any and all forms of open space, including dp patterns!  I don't believe in excluding all those other lovely colors.  :-D

     I think this one will make a great masculine Easter card.

 I used all 4 colors from 4 Season.


     That's all I have for this weekend.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Adorable image, and I think I'll agree with the little ones, I'd much rather have the chocolate. Cute scene and love the polka-dots patterned papers. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and Cupcake Inspirations.

Oh this made me chuckle with that naughty little bunny eating his/her egg. I too often wonder about the Easter Bunny and thank you for showing us how the skill is passed on. Thank you for sharing with us at Inspiration Station, good luck xx

I love it NC!! The sentiment you added really adds to the "story" of the image, what a fantastic idea! You did a wonderful job colouring the bunnies, I like the highlights you added to their fur. Great choice of papers and cardstock too, the mix of colours is fun and happy. Well done!
