Bunny Balloon

I've had fun making cards over the weekend, this was the third one I made in one day - which is unusual for me!  This card is for the challenge at SUO Challenges, which is to make an Easter or Spring card and the sketch challenge at Sketch Frenzy Friday.

Even though I don't send Easter cards, I just love this Everybunny set.  I stamped the balloon image onto watercolor paper twice and colored in with blender pen and ink.  I then punched out one image using the 2 1/2" circle punch and cut out the balloon only from the second image, which was then adhered to the main image.

The flowers are left over from a dye-ing session I had earlier today where I dyed some flower trim using water and Lucky Limeade reinker in a spritzer bottle.

I think this card would have looked so much better with the Clouds Embossing Folder but alas, I don't have it (yet!).

Thanks for looking.

Such a sweet card, Karren! I am the same - don't send Easter cards, but am a sucker for the cute bunny images in this stamp set. I love your colour choices ... and must try dyeing some flower trim too. Gorgeous!
