There's a Bunny in the Garden!

Spring IS coming right??!!    I made this sweet little Easter Card for the Featured Stamper challenge over on Split Coast this week.
Kecia (LittleSeaOtter) was the FS and I chose her sweet Hide and Seek card to case.

I used a different bunny stamp, different paper and sentiment - my bunny is from LaBlanche stamps. I stamped my sentiment from Waltzingmouse on a die cut Nestability egg and popped it up on foam tape.

I colored my image using Fantastix Coloring pens and Ranger Distress inks. (you run the pen tips over the ink pads then draw the color on the image)  On the video below they use Cut N Dry Nibs

Here's a link to a great You Tube Video on how to color the LaBlanche Stamps

They recommend using LaBlanche paper to get the best impression with LaBlanche Stamps - it's like glossy paper but not quite as shiny.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
