Yet another Easter card - watercolor

I decided to try my hand at watercolor.  All items, except where noted, are from Stampin' Up!

Cardstock:  Island Indigo, Watercolor Paper (inside of card), Whisper White (oval frame)
Framelits:  Oval Framelits (Spring 2013 Catalog)
Stamp Set: Everybunny
Embossing folder:  Cloudy Day (Spring 2013 Catalog)
Die cuts:  Clouds from Impression Obsession (inside of card)
Ink colors:  Tempting Turquoise (sky), Garden Green (hills) (inside of card).
Ink colors:  Primrose Petal, Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Island Indigo (all SU!) and Vintage Photo from Tim Holtz Distressed Markers (on bunny).
Other tools:  Water brush, Black embossing powder, embossing heat tool

This card stock is the A2 size with the fold along the top of the card.   I used the Framelits to create the opening in the card and then embossed it with Cloudy day folder.  Afterwards I used the same Framelits and the next larger sized one to create the oval frame for the card window.

The inside of the card was made by using the Tempting Turquoise ink and the water brush to paint the sky.  Then I drew a line for the hills with Garden Green and blended with the water brush.  Once dry, I adhered the bunny on stampin dimensionals.

The bunny was also stamped on Watercolor paper and then embossed with black embossing powder before being colored with markers.  After that was dry, I cut it so it could stand out from the background of the card.

Lastly I used the greeting from the same stamp set and punched it out with the Word Window and theModern  Label punch was punched on leftover card stock and adhered with dimensionals to the card.
