ColourQ #25

Hi Stamping Friends!

I haven't played in a blog challenge in forever!  And I'm so happy that I had a chance to finally to do some "fun" stamping.  All stamping is fun, don't get me wrong!  But alot of the time I'm stamping for a particular purpose (stamp camps, hostess clubs, fundraisers, etc....), not just for creativities sake.  So it is always a pleasure to stamp "for no reason at all".

Today's card is for the color challenge over at the ColourQ blog.  I love the color inspiration pieces that Arielle picks out.  Here's this weeks challenge:

Isn't that a fabulous picture?  And what an amazing color combo!  Makes me want to actually color Easter eggs with my kids.  That's just one of those family traditions I've avoided over the years.  Simply because I do not like boiled eggs.  GAG!  So who's going to eat them?  Not me!  And not my kids.  My hubby likes them, but how many boiled eggs can one man eat?!  So we just hunt for plastic eggs filled with all sorts of yummy cavity causing candy, and we leave the egg dyeing to others.

But that doesn't mean I can't have a few Easter eggs on my card.  Easter eggs and a chocolate bunny!

This was my first time inking up the Chocolate Bunny stamp.  And I have to confess, he's stamped on Close to Cocoa, but I did use Chocolate Chip ink!  I just think he shows up better on the Close to Cocoa paper.  The card base is Certainly Celery, layered with Barely Banana, and Tempting Turquoise which is embossed with the Perfect Details Texturz Plate.  The "grass" is from the Cottage Wall DSP pack, and the eggs (which are punched using the Oval Die) are from the Tea party DSP and the Pink Flamingo DSP.  I decorated the eggs using the Eggcellent Egg Kit from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  Decorating paper eggs is so much more fun than the real kind!  Love those mini rhinestones that come in the kit.  I wish SU! would sell these all the time.  I would buy them by the dozen!

This card also fits for the challenge over at the Our Creative Corner blog which is to think Easter.

Still trying different camera tricks.  Not liking how this turned out, but I'll keep experimenting until I get it right!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
