Egg-stra Special


Isn't this little bunny cute? She is from a new line of stamps that Jennifer Meyer has designed. Every Thursday, she announces a new sketch design challenge, so I played along with the current sketch and her Egg-stra Special stamp set.
Since the sketch called for a circle, I couldn't wait to play with my new Circle Scissor Plus. It is now so quick and easy to make the perfect circles. (I used it for a few scrap pages too that I'll show you soon - I just love how easy it is!) Anyway, I stamped out my images in Basic Black onto Whisper White and used my blender pens and my Aquapainter to color. TIP: You want to be careful when blending colors or using your Aquapainter on cardstock, as too much water or blending with start to curl and/or pill your paper - it's best to use the heavier weight Watercolor paper (105019), makes things much easier (next time I will heed my own advice - LOL). The final touch was a piece of Organza Ribbon and matching bow.
Make sure to hop on over to Jennifer's blog, she has some blog candy for you :)

For now, go kreate,
Kim
