The Easter Bunny

Have you seen Sylvia's new Wee digi designs at Cuddly Buddly? This cutie is the Easter Bunny, coloured with Copics of course and finished with a touch of Stardust Stickles around the edge. The background is a pretty piece of digi paper from Kim's Little Miss Daisy Spring collection with a pricked edge and a cream mat, although the cream mat isn't showing up against the base white card .. .. still need to get a grip on the camera! My mojo has taken off somewhere so when it came to embellishments I simply added a Marianne die cut star border, threaded it with aqua organza ribbon and used the little stars that popped out as embellishments in the corners topped off with a couple of yellow Papermania sticky back stars. I quite like the simplicity of this one, and it will go through the post at the ordinary rate.

Copic colours I used for this Easter Bunny:
bunny with E40, 41, & 42 with R11 & 12 in his ears, cheeks and nose
yellows with Y11, 13 & 15
the stool with BG10 & 11 and the edge with BG10
the egg with B60 & 63 with the flowers in R11 & 22

I also used a little white marker pen in the centre of the painted flowers on the egg, his cheeks and the top of his nose.

When it comes to challenges there are quite a few I can enter with my Easter Bunny! Die Cut Dreams and Creative Inspirations both have an Easter theme. A Spoonful of Sugar are looking for all creatures great and small, Crafty Catz are looking for furry friends, and Fun With Shapes and More are looking for animals.

Whatever you are doing this weekend, have fun! I'm hoping to go to a herb fair tomorrow so had better get some housework done today .. .. or perhaps I'll play with another little Wee digi stamp!

  14. the die bar with the ribbon is a lovely idea & I don't think anything more is required above what you have with this pattern of paper. Love the egg colours & the expression on the little chick is brilliant. Enjoy the herb fair.
