A Little Spring in Your Step

What says spring better than a sweet little bunny? When the ATC prompt was spring I knew exactly what to do!

Creative Crafty Friends is a fun swap group! So much fun that I tend to overextend myself with swaps I sign up for. When I saw the prompt was ‘spring’ I immediately thought about these bunnies from Joggles. I needed a special backing, so I went to my stack of Hahnemühle Bamboo Mixed Media cards I had already pre-colored. This one was going to have a special surprise. 

This is the flip side of that ATC. Those flowers are very spring-y and a little charm usually works well on just about everything! Even though I ended up not using it.

Because the Bamboo mixed media cards are a little larger than the 2.5″ x 3.5″ ATC size, I trimmed the piece to the correct size. That left me with a little strip that I adhered to the front, with the tangle part showing. Then I used an aster colored Dyestress ink pad to ink all the edges.

After selecting the bunny I wanted to use, it went straight through the sticker machine and was turned into a . . . . sticker! The flower is attached with a medium sized Zots. Cool things Zots. They come in different sizes and they hold really well!

I found some words that would work and I inked their edges with this Tahiti color from Dyestress.

And put the word strips in place.

I’ve had questions about these Daler Rowney acrylic inks I’ve been using. They work great for a lot of different things. Here I put a couple drops on my trash plate, spritzed some water on it, then picked up the color with a fan brush and made my splatters.

After adding the two colors of splatters I realized the edges of the ATC needed a little help. So, the Tahiti color also went around all four sides. Those light printemps in the background were made with a grey Copic fineliner. And this little spring bunny was sent hopping along its way to her new home. And her surprise?

  1. Fun seeing the bunny sitting on that tangled strip – works so well, & what a lovely back side. Meant to say about Belle in the previous post, nice that she comes to you & has got so obedient. They’re such intelligent creatures.
