Little Boy Bunny
Hi everyone! I'm really excited to share today's card with all of you. My Little Boy Bunny card was created for the grand opening of the Digi Doodle Shop and first challenge being hosted over on the Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge Blog. I'm excited to announce that I'm one of the Digi Doodle Shop's Best Design Team members and hope you will join us each week for a new challenge. This weeks challenge is to create a card that is Easter or Spring themed.
If you haven't already done so, you will want to sign up for the weekly newsletter and visit the store for a chance to win your very own custom stamp. The first 50 customers will be entered into a drawing for a FREE one of a kind custom stamp. I've had a sneak peak at some of the custom stamps created for others and they are really AMAZING, you won't want to miss out on this wonderful opportunity!
Today's card was created using the Little Boy Bunny digital image from the Digi Doodle Shop. When I first saw this Little Boy Bunny digital image I knew I wanted to color him using browns and blues with some yellow to highlight the cute butterfly. My card base is Close To Cocoa layered with a slightly smaller piece of PTI White then paper pierced So Saffron cardstock. The shadow layer is paper pierced Haystack patterned paper layered on to a slightly larger piece of Close To Cocoa cardstock. I chose this patterned paper because I wanted to color the image as the title says... as a Little Boy Bunny and after choosing the paper thought how funny... the patterned paper is from the Piggy Tales, Little Boy Blue collection, LOL!
Next I wrapped white grosgrain ribbon around the shadow layer and tied a knot in front before adhering it to the card base. The Little Boy Bunny digital image was printed on PTI White using my Epson Photo Printer and colored in using copic markers. It is hard to tell in this photo but I tried using a shading technique when coloring the bunny (the brown parts of the image). I really like the effect and will have to do this more often. After coloring the image I cut it out and attached it to the card base using mounting tape. I also colored and cut out the cute little butterfly to complete the image. To further embellish the card I added two small copper brads in the upper corner.
Thanks for coming by and hope you play along in this weeks challenge!
