Join Us in Inky Antic's Easter Blog Hop!!!!

Hello Everyone and welcome to another Inky Antics blog hop!

If you've come here from sweet Debbie's blog, you're in the right place!
If you just happened on here, head on back to the Inky blog where it all starts!

Today the girls are sharing some darling new Easter sets with you.
I am using #11091MC "Bunny Parade" clear set, illustrated by the very talented Tammy DeYoung.

Last week I made several projects with this same set (SEE THEM HERE) but they were all very pastel pallets. I wanted to show what the set could look like done in brights today. Talk about two totally different looks from the same stamps!!!  ;)

I guess you could call this a multi-medium card because I used Copics on the sky and grass and Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol on the image. I kind of like the look.  :)

I also stamped and colored several images then fussy cut portions and popped them up with Helmar ZapDots for a 3D effect.
Notice the fun dots on the image background? I kind of CASEd that from my friend Lori Boyd.  I LOVE her coloring! :)
I used a white gel pen to add some extra highlights. The colors bled in and changed the ink from white to pink on the basket but it still works. ;)

The designer paper is from K&Company's - Abrianna stack, and the cardstocks are Discount Card Stock's - Brilliant White, Turquoise, and Violet.
The bright and pretty Orange Swirls ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I used some #dd-135 Summer dew drops from The Robin's Nest to carry out the dots I have going on the image.
By the way....thank you Robin's Nest for all of the beautiful goodies you sent me to play with!

Make sure and leave a comment on all of the girl's blogs so you can get a chance at one of the two awesome Inky Antics prizes that will be given away. Only one entry per blog and the hop ends at midnight Central time on Sunday, March 25. The winners will be announced next Monday on the Inky blog, so make sure and check back to see if you are one of the winners!

Your next stop on the hop is my sweet friend Tex'x blog. I am sure he has something adorable to share with you! :)

Thanks so much for hopping by!
