Hippity Hoppety Card II (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #140)

Happy Friday! :o)

Today a new Aloha Friday Challenge starts at Kitty Bee Designs.

The challenge for this fortnight is #140 - Easter (bunnies, eggs, religious OK. Doesn't have to be Easter specific but must feature something that "represents" Easter).

Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter.

And here is my take on the challenge: Hippity Hoppety Card II. :o)

My card is a CASE of my own card that I made two years ago (find it here). I really liked my card and wanted to recreate it. I copied everything, same layout, same stamps, I just went with different color scheme and skipped embellishing the card. :o)

I used an ADORABLE Kitty Bee Designs 'Easter Egg Bunny' digital image. This is the 6th card I made using this bunny. Find previous five herehereherehere and here. :o)

How I made my card....

I printed one bunny on a white watercolored paper and one on a white cardsock paper. I left images to dry over the night to prevent ink smearing while coloring.

I colored the bunny in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the bunny and traced edges with a black marker.

I colored the bunny printed on the cardstock paper with the black marker, fussy cut the bunny, leaving white border around the bunny. Then I glued the watercolored colored bunny over the black one (paper piecing). I did this because the watercolor paper I use is very thin and I needed thicker image.

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 ta white watercolor paper panel with Distress Ink Iced Spruce.

For a sentiment I used a sentiment from the Create a Smile stamp set. I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a black cardstock paper and trimmed it to a preferable size.

With all pieces ready, I assembled the card. I glued the panel on a white top folded card base, glued 3-D foam squares on the bunny and the sentiment and glued them on the card. As a finishing touch, I drew white highlights on an egg with a white pigment ink.  :o)
