Follow the bunny...

Hey, hey!

I'm up on the Bellariffic Blog once again for Scenic Saturday. With it being Easter tomorrow I wanted to get one final Easter card made this year. I have quite a few cute Easter stamps in my Stamping Bella collection but I thought it would be a fun challenge to take a non-holiday set and turn it into a sweet Easter scene. The adorable Oddball Siblings caught my eye and I knew I had the perfect kiddos to celebrate an egg hunt. I could have simply colored them in Easter inspired pastel colors and called it good but when I spotted the Chocolate Bunnies set they were too cute not to pair up with the siblings. The chocolate bunny stamps come in three different sizes and at first I was going to pair one with each kid but then I thought it would be funnier if the two older siblings had small chocolate bunnies while the baby had a chocolate bunny as big as him. So I began by stamping the large bunny and masking it off before stamping the baby. Next I stamped the smaller bunnies and masked them off before stamping brother and sis over top. Once I removed the masks from the bunnies I did have to grab a black multi-liner pen and draw in arms to hold the chocolate confections. For the background I stamped in the Summer Backdrop after masking off brother and sister's heads. Once I began coloring I made the trees more spring-like by adding pink blossoms between the green leaves. In the grass I colored in a few hidden eggs surrounding the siblings until this scene started to look like the kids being told to pose for a photo by mom and dad before any egg hunting can occur. And from the looks on those faces, you can see how thrilled they all are, LOL!

Happy Easter to all those celebrating the day and may the biggest chocolate bunny be yours.  ;)
