Uniko Challenge - Colours ....

.... Hello! Can you believe that we're halfway through March already? No, neither can I! Only a few more days until it's officially spring and then it'll be Easter before you know it. That sort of leads into today post - I'm sharing my card for the new Uniko Challenge - USC#46 where we want you to use some or all of the colours in the graphic photo and we have the option of making an Easter card. Here's my card:

Happy Easter - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Uniko - Some Bunny, Happy Succulents, Birthday Sentiments
Inks: Distress - Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! DP - Daffodil Delight; Uniko Stencil - Scattered Polka Dots; Copic Markers; Spectrum Noir - Sparkle Brush; Clear Embossing Powder

As you can see, I used all the colours and made an Easter card too. I stencilled the polka dot background on the card using distress inks. I stamped the bunny on white card and coloured it with Copic markers. I put it back in the MISTI and restamped in Versafine and heat embossed with clear powder - I really like that you get a super crisp line using this method. I carefully cut out the bunny and adhered him flat to the card. I added lots of sparkle to his feet, chest, inner ear and bow tie. I finished the front by stamping a bold and simple greeting. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of yellow design paper and on the white panel added more polka dots and finished with a bold greeting. I'm submitting this card to Creative with Stamps - CWS#24 where they want us to use a bunny, and also to City Crafter Challenge Blog - CCCB#403 - they want bunnies too!

There's a definite bunny theme going amongst the DT! Very cute yours is too! Love your usual decorated card insert to complement x

He is a cute bunny, love them as pets but not when they eat my garden though. We seem to be plagued with them at the moment and the dog is going crazy when he spots them at night through the window!:)

Looks like Mr. Bunny is quite popular amongst the team members! Your version of him highlights just how cute he is, especially with a sprinkling of sparkle! Sweetness galore!

This cute bunny is in the spotlight for this challenge! Love the colours you chose for him, it reminds me the cuddly toys of my children. Beautifully paired with a soft dotted background. Adorable. x
