Happy Easter

Hi everyone.  Time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More - Addicted to Colours #38 (regal rose, sahara sand, tempting turquoise).  You can make any style of card you like ... but please keep it to the colours from the challenge as well as neutrals (brown, black, white, ivory).  You don't have to use the specific colours mentioned above from SU! ... use whatever you have that is close to those three colours ... and have fun!

Stamps:  Critter Balloons - Bunny (Bugaboo); Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU!)
Paper:  White, watercolor, Regal Rose polka-dot DP (SU!)
Ink:   Black, Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise, Sahara Sand (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Puffy Clouds die (Memory Box), Crystal Effects, blender pen, sponge, glue, adhesives, and dimensionals

I used this sweet digital image from Bugaboo, sized it to what I wanted and printed the image three times (card front, watercolor paper, polka-dot dp).  I cut the image out of the watercolor paper and used my blender pen and inks to color it (marker layering technique).  I cut out the balloon from the polka-dot paper and then covered it with Crystal effects.  When everything was dry, I glued it onto my card front on top of my printed image (paper piecing).  I added some faux stitching with my Stampin' Write marker and then stamped the sentiment onto a large cloud.

Here's a close-up of the main image:

I hope I have inspired you to join us for this fun challenge.  Check out the other fabulous creations by the Design Team at ATS&M!
