The CAS Challenge on Splitcoast today is bunnies or chicks. I love these cute little peeps & they should qualify as bunnies. I saw a t-shirt ad that had this greeting & some sunglass wearing peeps & thought it was a cute idea. 

For my card, I stamped the 3 peeps, added the sunglasses & then used a few Copics to draw the patterns on them. They were fussy cut & then I thought to add the bow & bow ties so I fussy cut those, too. I had to use a few greetings put together to get what you see & I used a marker to add the IN’ to the end of Peep. The frames & angled piece were some that didn’t get used on another project & I liked how they looked here.

This is going to my dad & stepmom so I wiped the ink off of the “one” & wrote in “two”. 

Thank

I have a pretty easy Easter card today that fits a couple of Splitcoast Challenges..the Free for All (F4A525) & yesterday’s Ways to Use It (WT783). The F4 challenge is to use a rainbow of colors & the WT challenge is curves. I certainly have a rainbow of colors & bunny got curves, all right!
I’ve had the idea for this card for awhile & I don’t have a paintbrush image (what I really wanted), but I do have this pencil image. So let’s pretend these are watercolor pencils! For my watercolor bands, I started in the middle & wet the area for the yellow w/ plain water, then floated in the yellow. Then I did the blue & purple on either side to give the yellow a little time to dry before I added the pink & green. I didn’t want the areas to run together too much. When it was completely dry, I stamped the yellow peep, masked & stamped the others. The pencils were colored to match, fussy cut & added on top.

Here’s the inside.

It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge (FS678) this week, so a big congrats to JJ Barrett (aka IndigosMom)! JJ has a lovely, colorful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the blue flower & chevron embossing, but used different images & dies, different embossing folder & a different layout.

To me, the blue, white & yellow color combo looks so fresh & crisp. After I colored the flowers, I die cut them, doing a little out of the box cutting to lift a couple of the petals on top of the die cut zigzag frame I attached on top. The script was heat embossed w/ white ink & white powder onto the cobalt blue strip. The white bg was dry embossed & I actually used the back side because I liked it a little better for this. On the Love die cut, I cut it in white & also blue, then spliced them together, using the cut off parts underneath their opposites for a double stack.

Here are the Copics I used. I also used yellow & ultramarine Prismacolor Pencils to add depth to the colors.
