The Ears Have It

Easter is early this year, and to be honest I usually don't send out Easter cards but I totally LOVE these bunnies!

This is one of the single stamps available from SU just until the end of March; it's called (appropriately enough) Ears to You.  Love the patterns on the bunnies and I think next time I play with this stamp I'll cut the image apart.  It's fun the way it is, but they're not too hard to cut out anyway and then there's more scope for imagination, as Anne Shirley would say.  I already had to cut out the So Saffron and Lucky Limeade bunnies; I colored in the stamp with markers and those two just looked kinda muddy and didn't match the rest of the card, so I inked them up with the ink pads and then cut them out and adhered them on top of my original image.  Betcha can't really even tell in the photo, huh?

Anywha, the colors are from Color Throwdown:

Love the inspiration picture, so fun and springy.  The sketch is from Fab Friday:

So I didn't do a literal interpretation of the butterfly on the sketch, but I *did* still put a butterfly on my card :)  That background layer is one of the dies from Apothecary Accents cut in half and adhered behind the main image so it sticks out on both sides; the original die isn't that wide but you can fake it pretty easily.  And now the Lucky Limeade polka dot bits form a nice visual triangle, so yay.

Thanks for stopping by today!

This is so cheery! I love the bright colors you chose! It is so cute how the middle bunny is looking up at the butterfly. Thanks for playing at Fab Friday!
