Die Cutting a Blended Panel for Variety

The Easter bunny has been busy this week painting eggs!  This cute card goes together quickly and is fun, though a bit messy, to make.  The bunny and eggs are die cuts.
 I started with a white top-fold A2 card base then added a panel of plaid paper to the front. 
I used Distress Oxide inks that coordinated with the plaid to blend a large panel that I could use to cut the eggs, paintbrush tip and paint can paint.  This will give me variation in my eggs without having to color each one individually. I die cut Mr. Bunny and everything else from various colors of cardstock.
Before I assembled Mr. Bunny I took a sponge dauber and some Crumb Cake ink to give his edges just a bit of dimension. 
I stamped the sentiment on a stitched die cut panel, then arranged my eggs under the sentiment.  I really like how cutting the eggs from the blended panel gives variation to them. You could also cut the eggs from a variety of patterned papers to give them some interest.
This card goes together quickly but is a little messy - brings back memories of coloring real Easter Eggs with my kids!
