Grungy Monday 39 - Easter Plaid

I made this card for Grungy Monday 39. The challenge is to use Tim Holtz technique of making plaid with alcohol inks. Click here to see Tim explain this technique. I chose these colors because I wanted to make an Easter card. I used Distress Ink & Distress Stickles in Dusty Concord on the bunny and the frame and Scattered Straw on the bow. For the card, I colored it with a Lettuce Dabber and inked the edges in Dusty Concord. The stamp is from a Stampin' Up stamp set called All Holidays. Thanks for taking a look!
