Watercolored Bunnies

 Hi! I'm back today with more bunnies!!

A lot of times I'll get a new product and just want to play around with it and that is how this card was created.  I started by ink blending the beautiful Hero Arts Floral Background Stencil on Hammermill 100lb white cardstock. I chose Distress Oxide Inks in the colors Kitsch Flamingo, Wild Honey and Speckled Egg.  I saw Laura Bassen (@laurafadora on Instagram) use that combination recently and loved it! 

 The result was so lovely that I knew it would be the perfect backdrop for some cute bunnies.

I die cut the Spellbinders 24 Carrot set from some watercolor cardstock and watercolored the images.  I used my Paul Ruben Glitter watercolor palette to paint the carrot and stems in the shades Deep Interference Orange, Royal Gold, Fruit Green and Dark Green. These paints are so shimmery that it makes me squeal with excitement every time I use them!

The little bunnies were watercolored in a combination of Kuretake Gansai Tambi Yellow Ochre and Brown from the Paul Ruben palette.  I used a R20 Copic Sketch Marker to color the bunny noses and a black Gelly Roll pen to color in the eyes and mouths.  I mixed a little water with White Gold paint from the Kuretake Starry Nights palette and used a wet paintbrush to add splatters to my stenciled background.


I wanted more of the Kitsch Flamingo color on my card's Kitsch Flamingo!  So I created a pink frame with the Pinkfresh Studio Stitched Scallop Rectangle Die Set. This was cut out of a Kitsch Flamingo ink blended piece of Hammermill 100lb cardstock. I used some liquid glue to adhere the frame to my card panel.

For my sentiment I used a piece of the leftover Kitsch Flamingo cardstock that I created and heat embossed the phrase "Happy Easter" in WOW Opaque Bright White embossing powder.  The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn Eggstra Amazing Easter Stamp Set.  A piece of gold mirror cardstock adhered behind the sentiment added a little pop of fun!


I adhered my bunnies and carrot to the card panel using some liquid glue.  My sentiment was placed in the upper left corner.

The finishing steps were adhering my card panel to a top folded A2 card base and placing some blue rhinestones around the sentiment for some bling!

I really do love how those big beautiful flowers look in the background! 

Thanks again for stopping by!
