And following quickly on the heels of my brother’s birthday comes an easier birthday to make for. Easier because this is one birthday — my other half’s sister — where I can repeat the general theme without worrying that it won’t be appreciated.
Bunnies! And this is a particularly cute bunny. I did the colouring for one of the Daily Marker colouring challenges, but I knew exactly where it would end up going. I used coloured pencils over Copic marker to add shading and texture to the fur and it turned out so nicely 🙂
Try as I might, I really can’t do clean and simple cards; I did give it a go, but it never seems to look right when I do. So, instead, I grabbed a couple of dies and made a glittery wavy ground for her to stand on and a cut-out circle to go behind her (which I backed with shiny card).
We posted it off along with the Powertex hares. Most of my dimensional pieces are just made for my amusement so it was nice to be able to send that one off to an appreciative home.
