More Easter Cards

I've got a couple more Easter cards to post before I head off to bed. For each of them, I used Reverse Confetti's Hippity Hoppity stamps and dies and Simon Says Stamp's stitched rectangle dies for the mats.


I masked each layer of my background inking on the first card. I then used my dies to cut carrots and simply stamped the middle of the die cuts before popping them back on the mat.


The bunny was coloured, cut and adhered flat to the card base.


For the second card, I blended my three inks for the background. I then stamped the sentiment and carrots and used the same inks as the card base to watercolour the carrots.


I stamped and die cut the rabbit and watercoloured him. I also added a bit of watercolour to the white space around him, in order to blend in with the background.

I also made these cards for Can You Case It, Challenge #111. Each card used turquoise, green and cantaloupe.


I will also add these cards to Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge: Create your own background.

Way to make two different cards from the same stamp set, Kate. Both of them are wonderful although I think I'm partial to the watercolor background.
