Designer Tip: When using the squeegee to scrape off the excess paint, don't scrape too hard. Glide the squeegee across the surface of the stencil without putting too much pressure on the stencil. Too much pressure will case the paint to squeeze under the stencil and bleed. Altering stencil images: If you don't want to use a portion of the stencils, tape (or mask) that portion off before applying paint.

Instructions:

  1. Cut the green/dot border paper to 5" square. Place the border at the top and use stencil tape to secure the Bunny border stencil at the bottom. Tape over the carrots. Apply purple to the 3 bunnies and aqua to the grass. Remove the tape before the paint dries. Use the tip of a pencil to apply a dot of pink paint to the bunny noses. Let dry.
  2. Place the card fold at the side and glue the paper to the card front. Glue a 5"x2 ½" strip of coordinating dot paper to the bottom of the card. Glue a length of pink rick rack across the paper seam. Place the "Happy Easter" Dazzles( over dot paper at the bottom.
  3. Stencil the Love Bunny stencil, using purple paint for the bunnies and dessert for the heart, onto white cardstock. Remove the stencil, dot pink noses and let dry. Cut into a 3"x1 ¾" rectangle and mat with both pink paper and purple vellum, leaving 1/8" wide borders. Foam tape above the bunny border and glue a sheer pink dot bow to the top left corner.
