Ciao a tutti! La Pasqua è a un passo e questa settimana vi proponiamo un tema che potrebbe adattarsi al periodo: HIP HOP! Ovviamente potete interpretarlo nel modo che preferite, coniglietti, animali saltellanti o anche musica. Sono sicurissima che la vostra fantasia andrà oltre le nostre proposte!
Seconda settimana per la nostra Designer Spotlight di Aprile   Amy Bethke aka Amy’s Card Obsession, fate un salto sul  suo favoloso  blog!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
Thank you for joining us for the Make A Rainbow Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we are challenging you to Hip Hop.
We are looking forward to what you create for this challenge! Whether you include things that hop, e.g. rabbits or some funky hip hop music, this theme is fun don’t you think!
This is second week for our Designer Spotlight  Amy Bethke aka Amy’s Card Obsession, check out her  fabulous blog!

Per questa sfida  ho preparato una card pasquale e ho giocato un pochino con l'assonanza delle parole Easter e Hipster. ! Così eccovi il mio Happy Hipster!

For this challenge I made an Easter card and I played a bit with the assonance of these two words: Easter and Hipster. ! So here's my Happy Hipster!

In una card pasquale non poteva mancare l'uovo! Armata dei miei Distress Oxides ho colorato un foglio  di Heavystock con colori primaverili e  ho tagliato due ovali con la fustella Tim Holtz Sizzix Stitched Ovals.  Uno l'ho usato come base , uno l'ho tagliato a metà con una vecchissima forbice sagomata per creare la parte dell'uovo dal quale esce il mio protagonista!

An Easter card must have at least one egg !! I colored  with my Distress Oxides a  sheet  of  Ranger Heavystock with spring colors,  I cut two ovals with Tim Holtz Sizzix die Stitched Ovals.  I used  one of these as a base and  I cut the other  in half  with a very old Fiskars Creative Scissors,  to create the part from which pops out my hero!

Come fare per rendere pasquale il mio Hipster? Aggiungendo  orecchie da coniglio!!! Per colorare ho usato Distress ink pads come acquerelli.

I added the bunny ears to  my Hipster.... ready for  Easter!!!. For coloring I used Distress ink pads as watercolors.

E siccome siamo in primavera ho dato una nota floreale nel background della card, embossando con una fustella a tema.

And since we are in springtime I gave it a floral note in the background of the card, with Tim Holtz Sizzix FLORAL Texture Fades Embossing Folder.

Un nastro rustico e la card è pronta per essere spedita!
A bow  made with Idea-ology Jute string and my card is ready to send!
