Hoppy Easter

Hello again!  It's my second post for today and this time I've got an Easter card to share.

I was inspired by the weekly a sketch challenge going on right now at STAMPlorations.  I followed the sketch pretty closely this time.

I decided I wanted to make and Easter card using this sketch and what I wanted to do came to me suddenly one night when I was watching a show.  The show had nothing to do with Easter but as it often happens, when my brain relaxes (in other words, the hamsters having a snooze) ideas just pop into my head.  :-).   Anyway, I cut four squares and stated stamping.  I stamped my bunny in grey masking off the bottom part and stamped my grass.  The grass is a small section of a SU! stamp.  I sponged some more green overtop to fill it in.  I coloured my bunny with Spectrum Noir markers.  I then stamped my eggs on two of the squares masking off the bottoms as well.  I used some old Le Plume markers to colour my egg stamp in the two colours then stamped them.  I did the same grass technique and colored with my SN markers as well.  The last square has the same grass and then the sentiment (by Verve) stamped in black.  I adhered my polka dot strip (Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection by American Crafts) and then attached my squares with some foam tape.

I'm also going to link this up to CAS-ual Fridays challenge which is "good egg", using ovals.  And linking to Addicted to Stamps and More where they have an inspiration picture.

Well, that's all for now.  Not sure when my next post will be as there's another call for submissions over at PaperCrafts mag and I'll be working on that for a bit.  I've got something picked up for publication the last three calls.  Going to see if I can make it four!  :-). Hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting!
