CWWC - Happy Spring Bunny Card

Hi Friends:  There is a new challenge today over at the Crafting When We Can Challenges Blog, where the current theme is Use an Animal as your focal point.

My creation for this week is a simple water-colored Bunny using my favorite shimmery, pearl watercolors.  It's very hard to capture the pretty colors and shimmer in a photo - either you don't see any of the glimmer or it shimmers so much that you can hardly see the stamped image - but it's really pretty in person.  Anyway, here it is:

I hope that you are inspired by my creation and will join us over at the CWWC blog to see the creations of the other design team members and enter for your chance to win a great prize from our Design Team!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great CRAFTY day!

Stamp bunny image onto watercolor paper with Archival ink and color with pearlescent watercolors. Die cut the image using the stitched circle die. Cut next larger sized circle from watercolor paper and color with watercolors, then frame the focal image with it.  Add Glossy Accents to the bunny's eyes and nose.  Cut an A2 sized piece of watercolor paper, emboss with embossing folder, then ombre paint the background with the green and blue watercolors.  Ombre color another small piece of watercolor paper for the sentiment, stamp sentiment with Archival ink, then cut with ticket punch.   Ink all edges with Black Soot ink. Assemble the card, placing the focal image in the center with foam squares for dimension.  Finish with coordinating ribbon and bow.
