Happy Easter! Let's Paint...

Today, I like to share with you an Easter card inspired by the Muse challenge 207 that I will be participating in. The layout of the card is by a sketch from Rita for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge 279. I thought it would be a really cute card if the chick was painting a bunny on the egg and the bunnies are watching it from a distance. 
To create this card, I first started off using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi to watercolor the center panel in a rainbow pattern. After it dried, I used Lawn Fawn's stitched border on the sides. Then, on lime green cardstock, I stamped happy easter using Lawn Fawn's Owen's ABCs stamp set with VersaMagic ink in Spring Pansy and then with my scissors I rounded the corners of each panel. 
For the back panel, I stamped the grass from Lawn Fawn's Chirpy Chirp Chirp stamp set with different green colours of Memento inks. With the colour New Sprout I ink blended the bottom portion of the panel. I did the same for the sky using My Favorite Things Blue Breeze and Pink Lemonade. I also used the stitched border on the sides of the panel as well to match the centered watercolor panel. 
Lastly, I stamped out the images from the Lawn Fawn Chirpy Chirp Chirp stamp set and the mini bunnies from the Simon Says Stamp My Kind of Peep stamp set. I used the double stamping method, first with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then with Versamark ink so that I can heat emboss it. I coloured the images with Copic markers and adhered it to the card with Tombow glue. Next, I attached the sentiment to the center watercoloured panel and used double sided foam tape to adhere it to card.  That completes the card.
