Bunnies and Pine











For last week's OSA layout challenge with an Easter theme, I decided to use the Whispering Rabbits stamp from Art Neko as my main image. In keeping with the layout design, I stamped the bunnies in black ink on an oval cut-out. The entire image wouldn't fit inside the oval, so I inked only part of the stamp. The bunnies create a great image left perfectly plain in black and white, but I added a little very pale color with pencils (pink shading on the bunnies and greens on the pine and grass). I edged the oval with a faint touch of pink, then mounted it to a rose colored panel layered with gold. In my stash of washi papers, I found a very springy cherry-blossom design, and chose a section of the page that would enclose the bunnies in flowers. I cut a panel to fit the folded cardstock, attached it to a pink panel and then to the card. I cut a strip of the rose colored cardstock the width of the decorated panels, and attached it horizontally. I then added two gold, scalloped rub-on strips and layered the bunny panel over it.

I'm very partial to this card because I have that stamp and I absolutely love it.

Great job,!

not only is this a beautiful stamped image but the background washi used with it too is exquisite.
