Painting Eggs with Mr. Bunny

Hi, Jeanne here today.  The Easter bunny has been busy this week painting eggs!
For this card I started with a white A2 card base (8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 to create a top fold card) then added a panel of plaid paper cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.  I wanted my eggs to be variegated rather than solid so I took out my Distress Oxide inks in colors to coordinate with the paper.
I had fun creating a large panel that I could use to cut the eggs, paintbrush tip and paint can paint.  I die cut Mr. Bunny and everything else from various colors of cardstock.
Before I assembled Mr. Bunny I took a sponge dauber and some Crumb Cake ink to give his edges just a bit of dimension. 
Next I used the largest of the Nested Wacky Stitched Rectangles dies to cut a panel for my scene and sentiment.  I used a stamping platform to stamp the sentiment in two different colors.
Finally, I arranged my eggs under the sentiment.  I really like how cutting the eggs from the blended panel gives variation to them.
This card goes together quickly but is a little messy - brings back memories of coloring real Easter Eggs with my kids!

Dies used:

Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Funny that you would mention it made you think of making Easter eggs with the kids because I was thinking the exact same thing. Our eggs look like that after the kids have dipped them in several colors and gotten the color all over their fingers. Awesome card. TFS
