Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #110 - A Clean & Simple Easter Bunny
I love Easter and Easter Bunnies are simply adorable. Whether they're the real, wiggly nosed type or the yummy chocolate type, I love them all. So you can imagine how happy I was when Heather Hopson decided to make her challenge all about Easter Bunnies. Of course it has to be Clean & Simple, too, but that just makes it more of a challenge.
I wish I had a stamp as cute as those bunnies in Heather's picture. Actually, hunting around my room, I quickly discovered that I don't have any bunny stamps at the moment. I know I wanted to get rid of retired stamps, but purging all my bunnies? In retrospect, I think that wasn't one of my best decisions.
But where there's a will, there's a way. We're fine with die-cuts now and punch art is really just a bunch of die-cuts, right? So I manufactured my bunny using, of all things, my Cookie Cutter punch. I also used a few others, like my small oval and some circles, but you can see that in my card. For my background I stamped some of the long grasses from the High Tide set using the Emerald Envy ink. And then, just to separate the white layer from the white base, I sponged some of the same green around the perimeter of that layer, too.
The googly eyes? Retired, yes, but oh so very cute. I couldn't resist.
I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations by the other Watercooler Artists at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and then link up your own cute Easter Bunny for us to enjoy.
