Easter Bunny

A fellow cardmaker friend sent me two of these playing cards with this cute little bunny scene on them in my Birthday card, I just had to give it a try and see what I could come up with for an Easter card.  Since it is a cute scene I decided to try and expand that scene a little bit, so I used my Tree die and cut it out with brown cardstock, after having it on there I decided I wanted the leaves to be green so I got out my sparkle pens in 3 different shades of green to color the leaves, although coloring them on the brown they all kind of look the same shade of green to me.  I cut the base with a coordinating die so it could be a shape card and using my homemade cloud stencil I sponged on ink for the background, adding a bit of brown for the base to go along with the playing card.  It still needed a bit of something so I used a sprig die and cut it apart to make bushes and had to add some flowers too :)

Spectrum Sparkle pens on leaves
Distress inks sponged for background, clouds and dirt
Poppystamps - leafy sprig die
Taylored Expressions - Arbor Accessories die (flowers)

I never would have thought to use an image on a playing card for a card but this turned out pretty cute, you just never know where you can find inspiration for our crafting :)  Do you have unusual things you have used on a card or craft project?

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Connie
