The Outlawz Alcohol Markers Photo Inspiration Challenge - Kelsey's Easter Card

Hello to all my Outlawz friends! We have another challenge for you based upon a photo. (I usually try to use the colors from the photo, as I am not the most original thinker on the planet. That said, please color whatever inspires you from this photo.)

I had one more Easter card to make: for our granddaughter, Kelsey. So I chose another image from my collection; this one is Mayzy Art Easter Bunny. I think she is really cute, and Mayzy's digis are some of the most reasonably priced I have found. Just sayin'. I printed my image on X-Press It BC and colored it with my Copics:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E50, E51, E55, E57
Eyes: BG000, BG01
Basket/Ears/Tail: YR20, YR21, YR23
Necklace/Bows/Flower: BV000, BV00, BV11
Bodice: BV000, BV00
Dress/Shoes: BG11, BG13, BG15
Lace: BG11, BG13, BG15, BV000, BV00
Grass: E81, E84
Eggs: BG11, BG15, BV000, BV11

Clear Spica was added to the necklace and Spica Turquoise was used for the trim on the dress. My DP is from the Lily Bee Design Picket Fence collections; it was Zutterized and paired with Core'dinations Retro Mod Squad CS. I colored some rhinestones for the corners, added some ribbons, and my sentiment was made with Cheery Lynn 'Happy' and 'Easter' dies. 

Please be sure to check out the inspiration by my teammates Carla, Dawn, Linda, and Kathi--they are stunning! Then join in the fun by coloring an image for your creation with any brand of alcohol markers. We really look forward each week to see what you make! 

Our sponsor this month is the fabulous Make It Crafty. One randomly-selected participant will win a $10 Gift Certificate. There is also a special bonus prize this month: if you use a Make It Crafty image for your creation, you will be entered into a second drawing for another $10 GC. Like I have said before, I wish I could enter! 

I am wishing you a very Happy Easter, if you celebrate it; if not, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
