Spring is the time for Bunnies

I can't believe what a lovely day we are having today. The sun is shining, there is not a cloud in the sky and it really feels like Spring is here. Of course…being in the UK…..it could all be gone tomorrow, so I am not going to spend too much time blogging and make the most of the sunshine instead  :-)

So my card for today is a gorgeous LOTV Bunny, coloured in shaes of Lavender for a change. This paper is actually printed from a Flower Fairies CD so it really goes to show that you can mix and match between ranges.

I have put faux stitching all around the edges on this card and I achieved it by pricking holes all around the borders (which did take a while!) and then using my fine liner to join all the holes. It really does give a realistic effect.
My lovely little bunny was coloured with alcohol markers - using the palest shades and lots of blender to get a lovely pastel effect.

So finally - on to some challenges that I would like to enter:
