Birthday card: Bunny in a field

Bunny in a field

What:

When I made a new baby card with this bunny my other half’s mum said she wanted one, so this is for her birthday.

How:

I started by stamping the bunny in Memento ink, colouring it with Copic markers and fussy cutting it out. To add some texture, I moistened a bit of microfibre cloth with some Copic colourless blender and dabbed it over the bunny. A coat of Wink of Stella on the envelope gave it a touch of sparkle.

For the background I raided my stash and found a couple of watercolour pieces that I made earlier in the year. I die cut these and a fence piece to create the countryside setting for the bunny. A dab of Distress ink created a shadow where the bunny would be standing.

I cut and scored the card base and stuck down the background panel. Then I stamped the bunny again on a piece of fun foam and fussy cut around the inside of it. I used this it mount the bunny on the background and give it a bit of dimension; with a relatively complex shape like this it can be quicker to do it this way than to try and pop it up on bits of foam tape.

The last step was to add a scattering of sequins.
