Default Need help with Darice Easter Bunny EF

I just had to buy this EF and now I don't know what to do with it. The only thing I can think of is put a bow at the rabbits neck and a little bling on the eggs. I'm not good at coloring and both side of the EF have positive and negative images so brayering the folder didn't look right. Any suggestions? Thank you for your help.

What a sweet folder. If I had to decorate it I would sponge the bunny slightly with a small make-up applicator in a soft beige, bling up the eggs with coloured glitter and punch or die-cut some flowers to stick on top of the ones on the folder to make them 3-D. I think I would also try it in an all white format too with plenty of glitter. (Can you tell I can't resist glitter?) LOL

I have this folder but haven't used it yet. I was planning on using chalk to get a soft look.

I don't have this little guy (now I want it), but I would emboss it on Coredinations cardstock and sand it exposing whatever core color I chose for the project. Then I would ink the edges of the image. You can add bling etc.

I'm sure it's a matter of personal preference, but I haven't had any luck using embossing folders with actual images. I ordered a Hello Kitty one because my granddaughters love Hello Kitty, but ended up never using it.

I love all my embossing folders for backgrounds, and use them a whole lot.

I have found with the images embossing folders, simple is the key. I love the idea of using coredinations paper. I did a snowman card on my blog that was the scene type of folder.

3 Monkeys throwing around some....PAPER!!!: Snowman Embossed Card

I embossed the card and then made some glimmer mist and misted over the snowman. Very pretty and simple!!
Ribbon, brads, buttons, twine, stickles, misting, sanding are all good techniques to use with these typle of folders!

Now I NEED that Easter bunny!!! LOL
