Easter Bunny

Hello.  Welcome.  I don't seem to be able to escape the hot pink today!  Over at The Greeting Farm the Colour challenge is purple, pinks, blues so here's Pretty Hat out and about with her Easter Bunny and Easter Chick.

I started by stamping Pretty Hat onto Stardream card and colouring her with Promarkers.  The stardream has built in bling and I love that this show through the promarker ink.  The bunny is actually Pretty Hat's dog!!   In this rubber stamp set she comes with a dog and also a bunny and cat head and the cute little bird and a load of other small stamps.  I was going to have the dog there and then I thought in the spirit of Easter I would cut off his head!! and tail!!! and give him a rabbit head instead.  Sounds a bit drastic but he makes a very cute rabbit don't you think?  Over at I Love Promarkers the theme is Cats and Dogs.  Do you think this would still count even though he's wearing a bunny head?  ROFL  OK, maybe too many chocolate eggs already!  The bunnydog and chick were stamped onto purple dotty paper.  The doily is Cheery Lynn Spring Flower Burst with matching angel wing.  The inner circle is Making Memories paper and I drew some lines with a Rose Pink Promarker to give Pretty Hat and Bunnydog something to stand on.

The background paper was a happy accident.  I found this lovely paper from Making Memories which has these embossed leaves on it.  I was inking the edge with DI Salty Ocean and liked the effect on the embossed areas so inked it all over.  Then I thought it was too much, spritzed with water and blotted with some paper.  The result looks a bit like leaves against a cloudy sky.  Happy accident.  Isn't Bunnydog cute?

I've used a purple base card and I also added some pink satin ribbon across the card.
