Happy Easter My Hunny Bunny

Hi Crafty Friends,

Alix here bringing you an early Easter Card. Easter day is special to me and my husband. Because he proposed to me 7 years ago on Easter day. Guess where I found my engagement ring? In my daughter's Easter basket! He was going to bury the ring underneath the dirt at the park we first met. Then he worried that dogs will find and take it away. So he quickly hide it into the Easter basket at the last minute. The problem is my 2 years old daughter almost cried when I took the ring from her because she thought its from the Easter bunny. I will never forget that moment. hehe...

Now let us talk about this card I made. I Picked Neat and Tangled Cottontail Cuties Stamp set for Easter scene. I stamped all images with Memento ink in Rich cocoa and colored them in pastel color combos with Copic markers. To create the background, I ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in fossilized amber  and tattered rose on Tim Holtz Distress watercolor papers. I used two papers, one for bottom layer and one for the top. To create the center window, I cut the paper into two parts with Lawn Fawn Lacy border die, then I adhered foam tape underneath to create dimensions. I mixed water and two inks that I used for the background, then splattered the mixture onto all card front space.

Time to assemble our colored images onto the card. I adhered them using Multi Medium Matte. Popped the carrot up with a tiny piece of foam tape. I simply stamped the sentiment "Happy Easter" from the same stamp set with Memento ink in Rich cocoa. At last, I pulled out my all time favorite sequins Neat and tangled Sherbert Sequin Mix to fill up some empty space for finishing touch.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are influenced by my Easter spirit. Remember, its never too early to prepare coming holidays! See you on next Tuesday. Bye bye now!
