You are simply the best

Hello everyone ;o)

This is Maike from Maikreations and I am happy to be back with my third card. This time I have used all three bunnies from the "Happy Hoppy" clear stamp set to create a fun and colourful card.



For my card I chose to go with white bunnies, so that they would stand out against the yellow, pink and turquoise backdrops. When I had coloured and fussy cut the three cuties I die cut the egg-shapes from a white panel. With the help of that panel and a pencil I marked where I wanted to sponge on the ink, masked off the area, erased the pencil line (this is the important step, which I always need to remind myself of) and used an ink blending tool to lightly sponge on the colours. 


Next I die cut the frames for the egg shaped holes and coloured them with the same colours (Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar & Peacock Feathers), only this time I put lots of ink on there, so that the frame would be a little darker than the background colour. I glued the frames in place with some liquid glue, stamped the sentiment and adhered the panel to my card base using foam tape. Now came the fun part. I chose a space for each bunny, added them using foam tape as well and also added an Easter egg balloon to the bunny on the right.
 

I hope you like the card and got inspired. Happy crafting, everyone ;o)
