Easter Friends for the Trip Achievers’ Blog Hop – That Bunny! Welcome to another Blog Hop. Today I am hopping with other Incentive Trip Achievers, although the Trip itself has been cancelled, we are still going to get the opportunity to ‘hang out’ together in May (albeit virtually), which is something.
I have chosen to highlight one of the cards I made for my virtual Catalogue Launch last month, which showcases the truly cute rabbit, although there are also images of a chick and a duckling, both of which are equally cute.
The colouring for this bunny is so simple because all the shading has been added to the stamped image. To create the image I simply stamped the bunny in Tuxedo Black ink and left it to dry completely before adding a light layer of Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend. This may seem a little odd, but it really helps to give the image a sense of warmth, especially as the only other colour Blends I used were Crumb Cake, which can lack depth. So, you have probably guessed that the next stage was to add Dark Crumb Cake where there is shading on the image and then colour over that with the Light version. I left the area around the nose and a tiny ring around the eyes free of Crumb Cake. I added Dark Petal Pink to the nose.
Now, if you know me at all, you will know that I have a real issue with images floating in mid air, so I really needed something to ‘ground’ my bunny. I could have simply added some light grey Blend underneath the image, but, for a change, I decided to add some ribbon. I didn’t want it to detract from the bunny, so I chose the White Frayed Ribbon, which I added once I had layered the image onto some Vellum and then some of the paper from the Friendly Hello Sale-a-Bration Bundle.
The finishing touches were a sentiment from the stamp set, just added to the very top right of the Basic White piece, and some of the Brushed Brass Butterflies fluttering around it. Simple, easy and so very cute! I hope you enjoyed seeing this project and will perhaps look at the stamp set as being more than simply and Easter stamp set; it is so much more than that.
Now, why don’t you follow on around the hop and see what everyone else is sharing with you. Do remember to leave some love along the way; a kind comment can make such a difference to someone’s day.
