Easter Bunny?

Today I finished a card using my new "Dreamy Tilda" stamp. I thought she could be wondering if her stuffed bunny was, in fact the Easter Bunny incognito.

So I drew her a floppy fluffy toy bunny...

As you can see, my "assistant" Dakotah, is absolutely rivited (not) with my artistic abilities. Yep, sound asleep:

I used Basic Grey's "Oh Baby! Girl! Hannah" paper, Bazzil cardstock, Martha Stewart punches (Leaf frond and Deco fan) and my Cuttlebug for the embossed background.

Gold bling is by Recollections and I used Diamond Stickles on Tilda's wings. Papers were edged with Encore Ultimate Metallic gold and Memento Angel Pink inks. The flower is something I picked up years ago at an art store that was going out of business. It originally was dark purple, so I painted it in white acrylic before using Copics to colour it in.

Tilda and bunny are raised with foam dimensionals.

The following Copic colours were used:

Skin: E00, E11, R20
Hair: E35, E47, D49, E51
PJs: R00, R01, R02
Bunny: R20, R21, R24
Flower: Y19, R20, Y21, Y24

What a delightful card Maureen. Very cute layout design and the coloring is sweet. Your assistant is taking great responsibilities on it's part. Look at how focus she is "guarding" while you colors, lol. So cute!

This made me smile soon as I saw it, I just came from the dentist spent 3 hrs in the chair, the only thing that helped me through it was Tilda, I keept thinking of Sweet little Tilda's Face
Thanks you did a great JOB

Love the punched border around your "Easter Bunny" card and of course the card itself! In your picture where you are coloring the Tilda, I see your Copics in the background. What organizer are you using to store your Copic?

Thank you everyone for your extremely kind comments.

Anne, I haven't been able to reach you via email, so I'll answer your question here.

My Copics are stored in a home-made holder. I purchased 4 doll dressers at Michaels in the unfinished doll furniture section, removed the drawers, painted them all black, and inserted (glued) chipboard dividers into each section to hold my Copics in place. The drawers I use in other areas of my scraproom to hold this and that ;)
