Inky Antics Blog Hop!

Welcome to the first ever Inky Antics blog hop! If you've come from Bev's blog, you're right on track! To start at the beginning of the hop...start on the Inky Antics blog!

The hop today and ends on Sunday, February 27th at midnight Central time. We invite you to stop and comment on each DT members’ blog, as there will be prizes given away. Three lucky winners (who visit and post at every stop in the hop) will be drawn at random to receive a new release Easter bunny clear stamp set!

Our challenge was to use the adorable bunny from the Bunny #2 clear set and give him something to hold. I thought of the heart in the Circle Sentiments #1 clear set. I colored and carefully cut it out. I made it into a little heart pic, reminiscent of the ones we used to get in our Valentine's treats at school! I used a Making Memories Heart pin, attached my heart with a glue dot and protected the cut end of my pin with a bugle bead.

For the background, randomly stamp the egg design pattern on a white panel. I used my Copic Airbrush and my YG17 marker to add color to the cardstock. I purposely added more color in spots and less in others. I colored my eggs with copic markers and then accented some of them with a white gel pen. I also accented each little dot with my white gel pen, it turned out so cute...and really looks like designer paper!

Your next stop will be to visit Trudy's blog. Have fun and good luck!
