Spring/Easter challenge card for CHF


Over on the Be Creative Blog for Cornish Heritage Farms there is a little challenge going on to make a spring/Easter card. I love CHF images and played along. I pulled out a Tim Allen's Friendly Critter which I haven't played with much at all and I just think this bunny is the cutest thing! There he is unwrapping his carrot...adorable! I stamped him onto PTI kraft cardstock and then colored him with Primsacolor pencils and blended with baby oil. I just love how the colors really pop when coloring on kraft. I used a backgrounder from CHF, Pretty Pattern for the mat and a MS punch, some sheer ribbon, hydrangea flower, button and some stitching to finish it. I left a sentiment off as I thought this little guy could stand on his own. I hope it's starting to look more like spring where you are. Our trees here are starting to bud and we are having our notorious windy days...can't wait for it to actually be nice so we can go outside! Have a lovely day:)
