Easter Bunnies Continued…..

Sorry, I didn’t get back yesterday.  You know how it is some days flow smooth and some days you can’t get everything you intend to do done.  Oh well, better late than never!

Here is a list of Copic markers that I used on this card  (click on the picture to get a bigger view):

Y000, Y21, Y02 – This is everything that is colored yellow.

V000, V12, V15 – This is the violet pink.

YG03, G85, G82 – This is the green  (I zig zag stitched the grass in and then colored also)

R14, R20 – This is the inside of the bunnies ears, nose, and checks

B000 is the highlighting around the bunnies and C1 is used to shadow the white bunnies.  This helps the white look whiter and makes them look like they were colored white instead of just being the white of the paper (they were not colored that is the white of the paper).  I also use C1 to help deepen up some of the light areas that I wanted to have a little depth to the color.  The importance here is you need to make sure you use the right tonal quality with the colors you are deepening.  The C1, C3 etc. colors are a cool gray, so they work well with the colors of the picture.

I added some Stickles here and there and the little bunny has Glossy Accents on the apron.

I cut the scalloped egg using a piece of acetate (I’m recycling).  I then ran it through the CB using an embossing folder.  Unfortunately, I didn’t write the name of the embossing folder down on the folder so I have no clue what the name of it is; however, something like Floral Fantasy would work too.

I took Ranger’s Adirondack Lights Acrylic Paint (Lemonade) and went around the edges.  Be sure and let this dry (it doesn’t take long) or it will smear.

I also inked the edges of the egg card in a darker pink  before I adhered the scalloped acetate egg to the front.

I used some pop dots to lift the little white egg with the bunnies up off the acetate egg.  Tied the bow using my Bow Easy and placed it where the sun would be shining.

This is a little card, the egg card measures 3″ at the widest point across and about 4″ high.  You can make it as big as you want it if you are using something like Sure Cuts a Lot.   Be sure and check out my earlier post today for the website that has the freebie svg cut.

I’m am so loving the Copic markers, my #2 daughter said she thought I probably like them so much because it makes you feel like I’m are painting again.  I used to teach Tole and acrylic painting years ago.   Hmmm, there may be something to that!

Hope you have fun with making something similar.  I’m loving the look of acetate through an embossing folder.   Let me know what you think, I love hearing from everyone.
