Easter Time

Good Morning
As Easter is just around the corner, I wanted to make a few Spring/Easter inspired cards.
This one was totally done with the Bunny Fields stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I pulled out a piece of white cardstock for my front panel that was 3 3/4 x 5".
  • I laid the cardstock onto my Stencil Mat and positioned the bunny part of the Bunny Fields stencil over the center and then inked it up with some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink.
  • I removed the stencil and wiped it off to continue on making my surrounding flowers.
  • Now if you look at the picture of the stencil below, it will give you a better idea about what I did next.
  • I masked off some of the flowers and then stenciled all the largest one around the bunny first using some more Distress Oxide inks in Spring-like colours.
  • When I was happy with those, I went back in and added the smaller flowers to fill in the open areas using more DOX ink.  Here are the colours I used:  Picked Raspberry, Cracked Pistachio, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet.  I cleaned off my stencil between colours as not to get muddy looking colours.
  • I rubbed over the bunny with my anti-static bag, stamped the sentiment and clear heat embossed it.
  • I glued the stenciled panel onto a piece of blue cardstock, then onto a white card base.

Here is the stencil I used:
