I just got this set this week and couldn't wait to play with it. I hand sketched the tree with my artist pen and used a brush and reinkers to paint. I used the WC Minis fern stamp for the leaves. I sponged in the Celery base grass and filled in the ground with the fern stamp in Olive ink. I sponged the sky in Bashful Blue using my cloud template. Sadly this scan does not show all the dimension with layers of grassy sprigs popped over the popped up eggs. I stamped a layer of tulips and did another layer cut out and popped up in front of them. I cut out the chicks and popped them up. I cut out the bunny after painting and used a little dab of Liquid Applique on the ears and the tail and heated to puff up. I glued it down without popping it up on dimenisons so it wouldn't look to far out of the scene. I cut one last layer of grass and cut sprigs across the length of that layer to add a finished edge to the bottom of the grassy garden. My one last finishing touch is a little bouquet of tulips with a gingham bow sort placed on the bunny to look like it is being held in his hand. This card was tons of work but it was lots of fun to create. I may have gone a little over the top but I love it.
