...Easter's on its way! But there's still time to make some cards and The Ink Pad has everything you need, including Tim Holtz's fabulous Spring Shadows set from Stampers Anonymous.
As the name of the set implies, the images are indeed shadows or silhouette-style solid images, but honestly the first thing I thought of when I saw those cute rabbits were the chocolate bunnies from the Easter Baskets of my childhood. For the record, Vintage Photo Distress Oxide is the perfect shade of milk chocolate goodness!
I used a variety of other Distress Oxide Ink Pads to stamp most of my images right on the gel prints which make up the two levels of this card, though I stamped the bunnies themselves and the heart behind them on plain white cardstock and fussy cut them. To position the stamping, and later the Eyelet Outlet Flower Brads and Eyelets with which I embellished the background, I first used a Hero Arts Oval Infinity Die to cut the window from the top/green layer of my card. Using it as a template, I made tiny marks with a White Gellyroll pen, so that I'd be able to position all of the flowers and leaves correctly.
As much as I love the bunnies, flowers and eggs from Spring Shadows, I have to say my very very favorite thing is that splatter stamp, which I can see being added to my kit of basic supplies that I use literally every day of my crafty life!

a chocolate bunny first!
