Okay, what is Easter without a pink bunny? Huh? Huh?
It's not Easter with a pink bunny, I guess!
Having grown up in the 60's and 70's, it was quite common for us to have neon colored Easter animals in our baskets. Bright pink bunnies were everywhere. And so, being a nostalgic person on occasion (though not to the extent of wanting to bring back disco or ever, ever to wear what we called hip huggers but you young thangs call low-rise jeans, ever ever again) I decided I had to make a card with a pink bunny. Just had to! So here it is:
Ingredients: Stamps - Kitchen Sink Stamps 3-Step Honey Bunny, Backgrounds & Borders; Paper - Soft Sky, Lovely Lilac, Pixie Pink, Certainly Celery, Whisper White; Ink - Pretty in Pink, Pixie Pink, Pink Passion, Lovely Lilac, Soft Sky, Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid; Other - Cuttlebug Paisley Embossing folder, Dots & Dashes ribbon (Michael's), Nestabilities Scallop & Classic Circle Dies, Silver Brads, Inkssentials White Gel pen, dimensionals
I used the sketch from last weeks Splitcoast Challenge (SC167). I was very happy to use this ribbon, which I, like a lemming, rushed out to buy when I got the Petals & Paisley set last year with hundreds of other demo's thinking of all the cool cards I would design using it. Guess what? This is the first one! And this isn't the only color combination of this paisley ribbon I bought, so I have...cough...lots of it.
But it went so beautifully with the new Cuttlebug Paisley embossing folder!And the two colors on the ribbon match the ones I used so nicely! I love it when that happens, don't you?
I bent the sentiment into a circle on my acrylic block so that it would follow the curve of the die cut bunny piece.
I used a Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid ink petal to highlight the embossing on the paisley rectangles. The bunny was stamped in four steps, so it was Pretty in Pink, Pixie Pink stamped off once, Pixie Pink, then Pink Passion for the final detail stamp. It's definitely a pink bunny. And STINKIN' CUTE! besides! (YILM!)
One thing you have to keep in mind with pink bunnies though...don't let them near the green bunnies, cause the result is not pretty and there are so many of them. Off to stamp! Ta!
