On to the cards I did for today.  I had such fun making these cards, all made so easy using my Mini and Original Misti's.  
For the bunny cards I set up my Original Misti using the ruler square and Creative Corners as I like to bring my panel into the center to work easily while I water colour. To stamp, I arranged the Country Blooms stamps using embossing ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder on water colour paper which I die cut with the rectangle dies. I put the panel back in my Misti to water colour and use my Creative Corners to keep my paper secure while I colour with my Zig brushes.
For the bunnies, in my Mini Misti I stamped one with intense black ink and the other I heat embossed using copper embossing powder.  I water coloured both bunnies using my Zig brushes and fussy cut for my cards.  As you can see here, I also used the same piece of water colour paper to die cut my Easter sentiment. 

I styled the bunnies and attached to the card base on foam dots and added some Wink of Stella to the ears and the paws.  I die cut the "Easter" in water colour paper and painted the bottom in a coordinating colour to shadow the top sentiment, then stamped the "Happy" with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy. To finish I added my trademark sequins.
For my third card, I used my Mini Misti to design the card and stamp the little scene. The oval die is on foam strips, and I used Zig Brushes to water colour, also adding Wink of Stella along with more sequins.
I hope you have enjoyed these cards, and now it is time to hop on over to Laurie Case.

  4. Very pretty cards, Kia. I like the flowers stamped with their tiny leaves; it gives such a delicate touch to the cards. Cute bunny, great coloring and the lamb is adorable. Like how you paired them with the Easter die and your fancy edged dies around the card fronts.
