I would like to ask for some prayers for two of my design team girls please? They are unable to participate this week for this challenge as Michelle's father had surgery and is in the hospital recovering and Amanda took a nasty fall and is also recovering. If you all could keep these girls in your prayers, that would be greatly appreciated. 

Okay so I had the pleasure of working with Bugaboo Stamps this challenge  and I decided to color up this adorable image,
  Bunny Love 1 .
Bunny Love 1
So I decided to create a cute little Easter basket that I will fill with candies and Easter eggs, to give to my daughter this Easter.

The Bunny
Okay so for this adorable bunny, I colored him in using my Spectrum Aqua Watercolor Markers. This was the first time that I had really used these markers and I really love how beautiful these colors blend. The colors are gorgeous and vibrant too. So I colored the bunny using Charcoal, Slate, black and Begonia. For the heart, I used the colors Begonia, Purple, Spice and Wildflower. When I was completely finished with the image, I took my black sakura glaze pen and completely outlined the entire image to make it really stand out. 

The Basket
For the basket, I took a piece of 140lb watercolor paper by Canson, cut it to size and scored it, and then chose the colors; Purple, Aquamarine, Spice, Begonia, Peacock Blue and Rose Pink to start coloring it up. I colored the entire piece of paper using the Spice first. To that, I added a tiny bit of Rose Pink. Then I set that aside to dry. While that was drying, I cut some half inch strips of purple cardstock from Recollections that I had leftover in my scraps and then started to fold them accordion style.  This is what I used for the "grass" for the basket. Once I was done with that, I went back to finish the basket base. I used the Peacock blue, aquamarine, Begonia and purple watercolors and started to add them around the sides of the basket piece. Once that all dried again, I took my Sakura black glaze gel pen and did some doodling. I really LOVE how this made the basket really pop! I used my ruler and added some lines at the change of each color. Then I decided to make diagonal stripes on every other color and little wonky scallops on the rest. The four corners of the basket have polka dots. I then added my adhesive and put the basket together, filled it with the handmade grass that I made and attached the handle using the tiny attacher from Tim Holtz. So to finish off my Easter basket, I added my cute bunny to the front and added a few plastic easter eggs inside for now. I really love this and I hope my daughter will too once it's filled with her favorite candies! 
Here are a few more photos.
