SUINKWWC31 - Easter Egg Hunt

Good Morning! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. It's Wednesday, which means it's time for another WHACHADOIN' WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE at Storage Units, Ink & More. This week's challenge is simple; make an Easter card. The SUINK Design Team was challenged to use the new set, YOU'RE SOME BUNNY SPECIAL. But, if you don't own this set yet, feel free to use any Easter set you do own. So, do you want to play along? If so, check out THIS post for more information. If you upload your creation to SCS, remember to use keyword SUINKWWC31.

For my card this week, I used five different stamps from the YOU'RE SOME BUNNY SPECIAL set. I also used SC218 from last week for my layout. I stamped the main image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored it in with Prismacolor Markers, and paper pieced her dress. One of the things I love about the Storage Units, Ink and More sets (and there are more than one) is that most of them come with images that are just PERFECT for paper piecing. I then arranged three of the egg images on an acrylic block to create my own background for the smaller panels and again, colored those in with Prismacolor Markers. The "Easter Egg Hunt" sentiment was punched out with my Word Window Punch. The cardstock colors are Certainly Celery, So Saffron, and Bashful Blue and the patterned paper is from the Imaginisce For Peeps Sake Collection. Her bonnet wasn't complete without a couple of Ice Blue Rhinestones. I hope that you will participate in this week's challenge and get a head start on your Easter cards (if you haven't done so already). Just remember to use keyword SUINKWWC31 when uploading to SCS, so we can all take a look at your creations. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a WONDERFUL day!
