Easter Greetings Tilda & her Bunny
Today was a great day! I went and had a delicious breakfast with my husband at a local pancake house. Oh and real maple syrup; so yummy! My scrap buddies were supposed to come over but due to some unforeseen circumstances that didn't happen. However, we did Skype and craft all afternoon which was great fun.
I started this card a couple of days ago and just finished. Tilda & her Bunny is the star of this card. I colored her with Copic Markers:
E000, E00, E11, E31, E41, E42, E43,B000, BG10,G0000, G00,G20, G21,G28, G40,R20, R81,R83,R85, W00, YR20, and YR21. I used a Sharpie paint marker to create the polka dots on her dress and hat. I cut out the rabbit and popped it up per my husband's suggestion. I added the gathered ribbon around the image.
The paper is from Basicgrey -Olivia. I used Martha Stewart punch for the butterfly, then added some bling and flowers to finish the design. Oh and I added stitches with matching thread up the side. Below is a close up of Tilda.
On the inside I used coordinating paper. The little flowers are from my Poppy Stamps die "Wildflower Patch". To tie the inside and the outside of the card together; I stamped the bunny, cut it and placed it on the inside corner of the card. I used an Easter sentiment that I had and chose a coordinating green. All the paper edges were inked with Distress Ink Tea Dye.
Here is a view of the inside.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving encouraging comments!
