Kreativer Wettbewerb zu Ostern

°•❀ Der Frühling kam! ❀•°

Man genießt sonnige Tage, frische Luft und blühende Blumen.
Das weltweit wohl populärste Frühlingsfest ist Ostern. Die meisten Symbole und Traditionen des Osterfestes sind mit Erneuerung, Geburt, Glück und Fruchtbarkeit verbunden. Flaumige Hasen, gelbe Küken und bunt dekorierte Eier sind wahrscheinlich die wichtigsten Ostersymbole.


Genießen Sie mit uns den Frühling!
AKVIS startet einen neuen kreativen Wettbewerb.
Erstellen Sie Ihre eigene Osterkarte mit Programmen von AKVIS!

Sie können unsere Bilder zur Erstellung von Karten herunterladen oder Ihre eigenen Bilder dazu benutzen.
Veröffentlichen Sie Ihre Ergebnisse unter oder senden Sie uns diese an info@akvis.com. Schreiben Sie kurz, welche Programme verwendet wurden.

Achtung: Jeder Teilnehmer kann 1-3 Bilder hochladen (max. 3)!
Treffen Sie bitte eine bewusste Wahl.

Der Gewinner wird am 18. April bekannt gegeben.

Der Preis ist AKVIS Gold-Geschenkgutschein!

Viel Glück und frohe Ostern!

I know this is kinda creepy looking ::) but I began playing with the bunnies eyes & added a smile with Liquify in Photoshop.
I then added 2 egg images to the eyes & the chicks using SmartMask from the images you supplied to the bunny image.
I ran the 3 layered images thru Sketch, then I added Happy Easter text and the chicks speech bubble & text in Photoshop to the Sketch result.

I reluctantly decided  :-\ to follow thru with this playful mood I was in and dared to submitting this Funny Easter Card?
Anyway, I broke the ice being this first entry & hope others now join in on the fun….
Again it's admittedly weird but kinda funny :D

Happy Easter to Everyone!

Thanks everyone for seeing the funny side of my Easter Card ;)
It's weird looking but I still get a chuckle out of it & glad some of you did too and yes those crazy eyes are eggs ???

Nice airbrush work on your entry Lilahloo… big thumbs up on your overall card design 8). Did you use a default Airbrush preset or one you made with your own adjustments?

I hope to enter another entry if time permits.

Three nice works from Sylvie Proulx:


La première carte qui est le lapin, j'ai utilisé Akvis Art suite, Akvis Smart et Paint Shop Pro X4.

La deuxième carte est le petit poussin, j'ai utilisé Akvis Smart, Akvis Art suite texture, Akvis Art suite-cadre et Paint Shop Pro X4.

Pour la troisième,  j'ai utilisé Akvis Smart, Akvis Art suite Texture, Paint Shop Pro X4, et JAC Animation Shop 3.

Voici le lien pour la carte 3, car c'est une carte animée:

This is my first in getting involved in any sort of contest. I do not even join groups such as this. But, what the heck I will give this a try and hope that I do not blunder too much
I used Photoshop CS6, Dreamsuite Ultimate and AKVIS Sketch.

Thanks for watching and yes I do use my own setting with Airbrush..nothing fancy though just the default setting then take all the noise out and pull the contrast right over to the left which reduces all the `bright`highlights and then play with the "sharpness,detail & darkness" sliders to suit... :-\

I wish they were mine, but they are from very talented artist Sylvie Proulx.

Here is her third postcard:
