Easter Egg Bunny Card (Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight)

http://kittybeedesigns.blogspot.com/

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this Easter Egg Bunny Card. :o)


To make this card I was inspired with a card I made last year (find it here). I went with same image, same background and same techniques, but there are several differences: card shape, color scheme, this card has no sentiment and embellishments.

I used an ADORABLE Kitty Bee Designs 'Easter Egg Bunny' digital image. This is the 5th card I made using this bunny. Find previous four herehere and here and here. :o)


How I made my card...

I have a pile of unfinished projects and printed digital images. Today's bunny was in the pile, printed on a watercolor paper and partly colored in watercolor technique. I finished coloring the bunny in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the bunny, traced edges with black marker and softened the bunny with a stylus ball on a soft working mat.

The watercolor paper I use is too thin, so I printed one more bunny on a white cardstock paper, colored the bunny with black marker, fussy cut it leaving white border around the bunny and glued colored bunny over the black one (paper piecing). Thicker. :o)

For a background I used Ester eggs stamps from a Jane's Doodles 'Suzi's Easter' stamp set and dots stamp from a Create a Smile 'Eggstraordinary Egghunt' stamp set. I randomly stamped eggs and dots on the white watercolor paper panel with Distress Ink Iced Spruce.

With all pieces ready, I assembled the card. I glued the panel on a foam square and glued it on a square white top folded card base. I glued another white cardstock paper panel inside the card. I glued 3-D foam squares on the bunny and glued it on the card. And then a nightmare of every crafter happened. I pressed the bunny on the card and some liquid glue between two bunny images leaked out and smeared bunny's ears. I didn't want to start all over again, instead I tried to repair the damage.

I left the glue dry and then I removed the glue with an eraser. I pressed gently on the surface and moved eraser in circle motion over the leaked glue. Eraser has to be extra clean! I fixed the smear  with Clear Wink of Stella and coated whole image with it.

Shinny and successful repair. :o)
