EASTER BAND

Hello.
Today I'm sharing a card for this week's MUSE challenge.


As soon as I saw Tracey's pretty card I knew I wanted to recreate that stripey, pastel paper with my inks.
So that's where I started.
(This was my second attempt. I learnt that you can't really use yellow - you end up with a muddy, greeny blend on either side.)
After that I was a bit stumped. I don't really send Easter cards so I had no basket, egg, chick type stamps.
After digging around in my stash I came up with these bunnies.
Bunnies in a marching band - that's got to say Easter - right?  :-)



Supplies.
My Favorite Things - Stitched Scalloped Border Die/Stitched Alphas/Strike Up The Band.
Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass/Spun Sugar/Shaded Lilac/Cracked Pistachio
Bunnies coloured with Copics.

Croline I am glad you stuck with it because you ended up created a really fun ester card. If bunnies in a marching band say Easter I don't know what does. ;) Gorgeous striped background! Thank you so much for sharing with us at Muse this week!
