Today is the day for a new challenge at the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog, March 22 - April 4.Talk about adorable!
Of course, I wanted to start with the bunny since Paper Smooches has a cute bunny stamp and they are the focus of the inspiration piece. Notice my background? I used one of PS's new background stamps. I stamped it repeatedly with white ink on white cardstock and then embossed that with white embossing powder. Now let me tell you, this was something I am not going to try again soon. It is basically impossible to line up images when they are stamped in white on white!!! I sprayed this piece with a few colors of Chalkboard spray. I used pastel shades to match the cute bunny ears in the inspiration piece but I wanted to have green be one of the main colors.
I kept the coloring of my bunny to a minimum and then used the chevron background stamp to mimic grass behind the bunny. I had to include a cloud in my little scene.
And, for something new to me...I played along with a new sketch blog, retro sketches. Plus I am also playing with the Practical Solutions week: Household items challenge at Moxie Fab and that is to use "found" pieces on a card.
The apple stamp is by Paper Smooches and I paper pieced the two sides of the apples with patterned paper.
This is fun, for my "found" items, I spied the cute bag that apples came in that we had picked up at Targets. The green print is from the label, the bread tag was used to close the bag and that cool bow is the neat thread net that held the apples. I just couldn't throw that stuff away, it is so soft and made a fun accent.
