Snoozing on the beach with a towel and an umbrella, even the very little bunny finds this so relaxing.

This card features a House Mouse & Friends bunny stamp and lots of shades of pink.


Putting It Together

This is one of the stamps I got with the gift card I got for winning a House Mouse challenge. I also used some of the ink I got for winning a different House Mouse challenge. The challenge I made this for has the theme of Pink. 

Since I was going to be doing a lot of colouring/painting with pink. I stamped the image with pink.

I like how the image comes alive as I am painting it. I use Distress Ink with waterbrush on light weight water colour cardstock.

Shades of pink...

 And a bunny sleeping in the sun.

I used a Spellbinder die to trim the image.

I decided to use a sketch from a the Sketchy Challenges current challenge.

I used an Elizabeth Craft Designs stitched die to trim pink dotty papers and dry fit the elements of the card together.

For the bottom metallic paper, I used the blender to add Worn Lipstick to the edges.

I then blended Spun Sugar to round the corners.

I adhered the dotty papers together and then used Foam Mounting tape on them together to add dimension to the card.

I also used foam mounting tape with the bunny image. I used two ribbons, adding a touch of blue to the card along with more dotty pink. I added a sentiment to the front from a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp set and gold Spinkles embellishments.

Inside, I stamped another KKS sentiment and added a Sun from Stampin' Up set in yellow and coral.
