Sweet Treats with the Rainbow Lady

This week our challenge over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge is Sweet Treats for Easter! 
We have a really fab prize up for grabs too.... our lucky winner will receive stamps to the value of £15 from The Artistic Stamper!! Mmm I wonder if I can disguise myself and enter lol?

Now I don't normally make many Easter cards and only have a couple of Easter stamps in my stash so I didn't have a lot of choice for my DT card. I've used this gorgeous stamp - Fantasy Easter Ocean by Ching Chou Kuik from Sweet Pea Stamps for my card. The bunnies are so cute and there are some little Easter eggs there honest :-)

I've painted the image with distress inks, I love using these inks but it takes me sooooo long to do lol. This kept me out of mischief for hours. I've used a bp from Raspberry Road Designs and distressed it with a craft knife. I die cut the border with my cuttlebug and coloured it with wild honey distress ink. The leaves are stamped using Sheena Douglass stamps and made the flower by punching 6 flowers with a woodware punch using copier paper. I sprayed the punched flowers with starfish and yellow daisy glimmer mists and layered them up once the were dry.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Creatalicious: Easter plus pink green yellow and blue
Daring Cardmakers: Spring or Easter
Fabulous Friday: homemade embellishment
Pile it on: Use a rubber stamp

Thanks for calling by, I hope you're going to share your sweet treats with us this week.
I'm counting down now, one more day at work and then I have 11 days off :-) I know I keep going on about it but I'm soooo looking forward to some time off! Make sure you pop over to my teamies blogs and check out their beautiful work, they have come up with some fab inspiration again this week :-)
