Mama Elephant Up and Away Easter card

Simply Create Too

Hello everyone, and welcome to another challenge over at Simply Create Too. We are halfway through the current challenge which is to make an Easter and or Bunny card, and I came up with this one:-




I used the very cute Mama Elephant Up and Away stamp set and stamped in black Versafine ink and then embossed with clear powder. I stopped using black embossing powder some time ago because no matter how much I swiped the card with an anti static pad, I always got some stray powder on my card, and black dots really show up. With the clear powder you really don't notice the odd stray dot or two,


I coloured the bunny with Copic markers and stamped the sentiments which come from the Waltzing Mouse Spring Baskets set. I stamped and coloured the umbrella on a separate piece of card, added some polka dots with a tiny spot stamp, then fussy cut it and raised it on foam tape to give some dimension. I matted onto orange card die cut with the Lil'Inker Designs stitched rectangle dies and then added a little white gel pen and some Wink of Stella to the umbrella and Bunny tummy to finish it off.


I'd like to play along with the following challenges
