Not your Typical Easter Colors...

Challenges make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew. -Cicely Tyson

Tor the next few days I am going to be showing you some Spring Card Kit cards I made lately. All of the Kit card were made using images, patterned paper and cardstock sent in a kit. I just had to make something out of it. :) The rules are we can add any embellishments or ribbon and make anything we want, but we have to use the Majority of the items included in the kit.

When I opened Jeannie's kit I was not sure what to do...Brown, Red, Pink and Olive are not the first colors I think of when I think Easter...but once I got coloring I was sold!!! I Love how this one turned out! I was also excited to be able to play along with the Penny Black Challenge this week, which is to create an Easter card!

I wanted a way to tie the Brown CS in so I went over the shaded areas of the image with my dark brown copic marker, then using my colorless blender I pulled just a tad of the color out to shade the bunny.

I had just enough paper left to do up the inside...I just added an egg and sentiment from Eggstravaganzy by Elzybells.

Stamps: Egg Craft (Penny Black,) Eggstravaganzy Sentiments, Eggstravaganza (Elzybells)
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, Choco Chip, Riding Hood Red CS, Bella Rose DP (SU)
Ink: Copic Markers
Misc: Ribbon, Stardust Stickles, Pink Stickles, Diamond Glaze

Thanks for stopping by!
