Messy Rabbit

Hi again

I made this little card as a change from all the girlie types, keeping it plain and bright, it is a Joanna Sheen messy rabbit stamp, I bought this stamp years ago and used it for fathers day and birthdays a couple of times but I don't think he's been out of the drawer in at least 2 years so not before time!

I coloured him with copics and prismacolor pencils and shaded the die cut with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.  The green paper is from craftwork cards as are the sentiment tags and the little card candy studing them together also the scalloped card  The gingham paper was from my stash, I die cut the swirl on my cricut expression with the Cindy Loo cartridge - a really nice cartridge with lots of swirls and cute shapes and die cuts for all kinds of things as well as a really good font - its one of my best used favourites.  The buttons and ribbon are from my stash and I can't remember where the bakers twine came fom - but it finishes it off nicely.  It's a nice change sometimes to move away from the ribbons, lace, flowers and bling and just make a cute card, it probably took me longer trying to decide what not to put on, rather than the embelish it to death cards I usually make!!

Thats me for today - off to think about tomorrows project!

Hi Judith: I think that rabbit looks stunned it has a birthday or is attending one! It is hilariously adorable! The coloring of this precious one is so vibrant and beautiful and I really enjoy how you've used so many other colors and shapes/patterns on the lines on your card. Thanks for coming over to SENTIMENTAL SUNDAYS. Luv Samara
