Blogger Challenge



Isn't this bunny just the cutest? I love him so much. For Maria's challenge I had to make a trifold card. This was my first attempt at making a "gate" card, and I quite like it. The image was stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with the following: Tombow watercolour markers, watercolour pencil crayons (both were blended with brush and water) and regular pencil crayons. Why? Because I don't have Gamasol for my sparce number of Prismacolour pencil crayons and I only have a package of 8 watercolour pencil crayons. Thank heavens for my painting background; it gave me the knowledge to shade in various portions of the image while maintaining a professional look. I felt this image needed a picnic look and the only red or black checked paper I had on hand was this nine year old scrapbooking paper that is too out-of-date to use in my scrapbooks. To finish off the card I used this ladybug ribbon. Thanks, Maria, for the inspiration.
