Got eggs?

Good morning! Somehow the calendar is playing tricks on me and it's almost April- March was just a blur! That little reality check means that Easter is almost here (not to mention tax tine-boo, hiss!) and I need to get working on Easter cards. I think my kids have caught onto the Easter bunny deal (they are 8 and almost 12 after all-lol!) but they still enjoy the egg hunt and all the candy, of course:) My absolute favorite bunny images come from illustrator, Zlatina, whose Etsy shop I frequent a lot! I bought a few of her spring/Easter bunnies and decided this guy was perfect one to start with.

I sized him to fit my card using Photoshop Elements, printed him on Whisper White card stock using my Epson 3800 printer and heat set the image before coloring him with Copic markers. I printed another image onto Close to Cocoa card stock, stamped over the image with a "Canvas" background stamp and cut out just the basket to paper piece over the colored image- it's a much more realistic texture to the basket and better than my coloring would have done!

 The image was cut out so that his ears fall outside the cut lines and added some grass cut with a great little grass die from MFT.  I sewed layers of paper from the "Tickled Pink" collection by MME together and added silver brads, some wrinkled ribbon and a yellow button tied with baker's twine. I wracked my brain for a cute greeting and came up with "Got Eggs?". A little search of the internet yielded the "Got Milk?" font and voila- it was done!

A smaller version of the bunny image is on the inside, along with a greeting using the same font and some more of this great flower-power paper- so springy!

Hope you're having a great day-
