Karen Amidon...that's me!

The Artist Bunny is getting a head start on coloring his eggs! Isn't this image adorable?

I went with soft pastel colors. The bunny was inked up with London Fog. He has been fussy cut and colored with Copics. His paw and egg were stamped again, fussy cut and raised with foam tape. The painted egg and paint splats have a touch of Wink of Stella to give them a sparkle.
I mounted the Egg Scroll Die behind the bunny. The bottom layer was colored with V20, dry embossed and then Wink of Stella added to it. The top layer was also dry embossed and then die cut. Next it was heat embossed with clear ep to give it that wonderful shine! Stitching was done on the cardstock. The beautiful sheer ribbon also has stitching on it!

For the inside I have done the same embossing technique on the Egg Scroll Die
