Hello! Another great day to play with my Avocado Arts stamps and the set of the month, Spring Medley! The Pit Crew Too is posting today and I know there'll be lots of goodies for you to see.
My card today is a bit on the CAS side but was so fun to make - it just makes me giggle!
So I thought it would be fun to make this sweet little bunny peep look like a real peep! My first thought was to color some sugar with food coloring (which my almost-11 year old learned how to do last year at baking camp), but we couldn't find my food coloring pastes - think I may have thrown them out after turning my hand purple one too many times! So, Plan B - I ran stamped the bunny, cut it out and then ran it through my Xyron sticker maker and dipped it in sugar. I really pressed the sugar in there to make it stick and make sure it as mostly covered.
Then, believe it or not, I colored the sugar with a Copic marker! I used the chisel end and instead of coloring back and forth, I just sort of pressed it around on all the sugar so I wouldn't scrap it off. This probably wouldn't work well for a card you had to mail, but I know some children who would love a card like this in their Easter baskets! *wink,wink*
The rest of the card is pretty straightforward. I used the grass and cloud stamps from Perfectly Perfect Day and the little flowers are from Avocado Type. I love how all these great stamp sets work perfectly together !
I'm hoping to get some better pics taken in the morning - photographing a white card at night does not work well, the pink is really a hot pink (not so coral-looking like it looks on my screen).
Here's the list of Crew members posting today and don't forget to visit the AA blog! Happy Friday everyone. I'm off to finish cleaning up for my son's 8th birthday party tonight - his first sleepover! Wish me luck!
