Easter Bunny

Hello, crafting friends!
It's Saturday and time for another fun challenge at Addicted to CAS! I really enjoyed hosting our last challenge and seeing all your wonderful watery cards, but it's time to pass the baton into the capable hands of Helen who has come up with a word I think will be very popular:

Animals fit into all sorts of card types don't they, but I immediately decided on an Easter bunny!

I brought out one of the sweet rabbits from The Craft Consortium's English Garden, stamped her, coloured her with alcohol markers, fussy cut her, then set her aside while I made a background for her to frolic about in!

The frame was made by using Waffleflower double stitched circle die to emboss onto a card panel. I decided to cut it out with the larger die which creates lots of contrasting textuyre. I made a circle stencil with a punch and taped it over the circle frame, then added Funky Fossil's Scenic Borders stencil over the top, and sponged green ink into the grass area. I sponged blue ink over the sky area before removing the circle stencil and stamped an Easter sentiment from Lawn Fawn in green ink. To finish the card, I stamped the rabbit onto the background, then glued my fussy cut rabbit in place over the top, added some coloured enamel dots and attached the circle to a card base.

So, now it's your turn! Do hop over to the Addicted to CAS blog and enjoy the fabulous samples made by the rest of the team. You'll find the Linky Tool at the bottom of the post and you can use it to link up your own creation. Don't forget to  keep your card nice and clean and simple with lots of lovely white space, and have fun!

I'm joining in with Claire's fabulous  board at Tic Tac Toe this week (I am on the Team X design team and Claire is on Team O, so it's lovely to join in with her board!) I've chosen the middle row Pastel/Rabbit/Coloring. I'm also linking up with Addicted to Stamps and More where there's a Make Your Mark challenge, and having a second go at AAA Cards where the theme is Anything CAS with optional spring animal. Brenda's theme at Allsorts today is Any Real Animal, so I'm playing along there too.

It's hard to believe it's April already! Did anyone get pranked on April 1st?

Sending hugs,
