Easter inspiration

Today I have some Easter inspiration  for you.
I had this idea after seeing the latest blog post on
the blog of Tim Holtz, where you showed some of the
cutes Chocolate Easter bunnies. Now I do not have all
those materials,but I came up with my own variation.
I have this mini Easter Bunny from Sizzix movers and shapers
and used it to cut out a few bunnies from bookboard.
Then i took som tin foil frommy kitchen and crumpled
it and then straightened it again.

I put the bunny on the shiny side

and cut the tin foil to about 3/4 inch around the bunnie.

Then fold it all around the bunny shape.
Next I took the alcohol ink and dabbed it on the foil.

Make it look like the chocolate bunnies from the shop.

 A tiny ribbon around its neck completes the bunny.

The sentiment I typed with the computer with the

With a memo pin I added the sentiment to the bunny.
I made severalbunnies in different colors
and added them together on a card.

I also made some other variations
in combination with the Easter egg by Michael Strong.
I used some shiny paper and added two colors of 
alcohol ink: mountain rose and sunshine yellow.

On top I stamped the egg with versamark and
embossed it with mirror gold embossing powder.

How about the bunny in front of the egg?

This is the result.
Paper is from a Tim Holtz 8 x 8 inch paper block.
I used the sewing machine on fastening the papers together.
Or make the bunny jumout of the egg?!
The lines for cutting the egg are in the pattern
of the stamp.

And here is the final card, also with sewing and the Tim Holtz paper.
Which one do you like best?

Thank you for looking.

Have a creative day!
