Easter card with a bunny

Hello everyone, it's April and we have a new challenge at the Country View Challenges and this time I will be your hostess. The theme is - what else? - Easter and/or Spring. I hope you like it!

My first inspirational project is a card with the brand new die by Tim Holtz, the Cottontail.

For the background, I cut out a 300gsm watercolour paper, then I coloured a blue part for the sky and a green for the grass.

I used the following DecoArt Americana paints: Blue Chiffon, Winter Blue, Foliage Green, Green Mist.

Then I added Mint Julep Green to soften the green part.

The fence was painted with Pebble.

When the fence was dry, I embossed it with the Lumber embossing folder. 

The sky was embossed with the Swirls embossing folder of the Burlap&Swirls set.

The grass cut out was painted with the same colours than the green part of the card, then I glued it on the card. When the glue was dry I embossed it with the Burlap embossing folder.

After the embossing, I smeared Picket Fence Distress crayon onto the surface.

I inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress ink.

The bunny was coloured with Grey Sky.

And I used one of the dies of the Robotic die set to make an eye for the bunny. 

What I used:

Sizzix Bigz die, Cottontail by Tim Holtz

Sizzix On The Edge die, On The Fence by Tim Holtz

Sizzix Sizzlits die, Tapered Fringe by Tim Holtz

Sizzix Sizzlits die, Butterfly Frenzy by Tim Holtz

Sizzix embossing folder, Swirls&Burlap by Tim Holtz

Sizzix 3D embossing folder, Lumber by Tim Holtz

Sizzix Thinlits die, Small Tattered Florals by Tim Holtz

Sizzix Thinlits die, Robotic by Tim Holtz

Stampers Anonymous, Crazy Talk by Tim Holtz

Ranger Distress crayons, markers, inks

Ranger Archival inks (Watering Can, Potting Soil)

tiny half pearls
