Bunny in a Basket of Flowers and Chicks

One of my favorite Easter stamps is an old PSX stamp that I call Bunny in the Basket....this one is not named on the wood block...only has a number.   I usually have made larger cards with this image but thought I'd try it on a 4.25 x5.5".  This kind of crowds the image but I finished it any way. I colored with markers from Tombow...if I am using an old stamp, might as well as use old markers too. Will try again and color with Copics. I used versamark pen on the chicks and bunny and heat embossed with clear EP to give some highlights.
Cut the image out and rounded the corners. Adhered to a card base of yellow and finished with sentiment and pink rhinestones.

Let's Ink It Up: Theme is Easter.
Pollycraft Monday: Use old or neglected stamps.
Simon Says Stamp:  Use spring colors or Easter creation.
For Fun Challenges: Theme is bunny, anything with a bunny.
C.R.A.F.T. Challenges:  Theme is to use animals/pets. I used bunny and chicks.
Do You Stack Up Challenge: Follow the yellow brick road...use yellow papers, ribbons, etc.
Paper Cutz Challenge: Make a card using a hand stamped, digital stamped or Cricut cut image of a bunny, lamb, chick or Easter eggs.
A Spoon Full of Sugar: Use Tons of Texture-at least 2 types. I used dry embossing border at lower edge of card and heat embossing on Bunny and Chicks. Rhinestones also add texture.

Stamps: PSX Image, Hero Arts Sentiment
Ink: Black Versafine, Memento Rose Bud
Assorted Markers, Versamark Pen
Papers: GKD Wild Dandelion, White
EK Success corner punch
Spellbinder Fancy Tags Die (modified)

love this stamp and you colored it beautifully - dont think its crowded - glad to see the image be the focal point of the card.
I'm cutting back on embelishments and going back to letting the image or sentiment be the focal...til i get tired of that (0:
