Easter: Bunny and bird with basket

I don’t make many Easter cards, in fact this year I’ve only made two: one for my mum and one for my other half’s bunny-loving sister. This card was actually made last year, but never made it onto the blog. Short of colouring directly onto the card base, this card couldn’t have been much simpler.… Continue reading Easter: Bunny and bird with basket

Easter: Bunny and eggs

I’ve been so disconnected recently that I nearly missed the start of the latest Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. This is challenge number seven and I’ve taken part in all the previous ones; I haven’t always coloured every day, but it’s always been fun, not only creating, but also seeing what everyone else is… Continue reading Easter: Bunny and eggs

Thank you: Magician’s bunny

Quite often I’ll be inspired by a card I’ve seen; I’ll get a flash of an idea triggered by a layout or a technique or just the way someone has used a particular stamp. But I always try to put my own interpretation on it, to use it as a springboard to something completely different.… Continue reading Thank you: Magician’s bunny

Hello: Bunny with gift

Another catch-up post; this card was originally made on February 4th as part of the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. I am slowly working through my backlog of digi stamps and using them to experiment with different mediums. This is my first proper attempt at colouring with Stabilo markers. How: I wish prints from… Continue reading Hello: Bunny with gift

Easter: Bunny with carrot

Another month, another cute digi stamp from Gerda Steiner to play with. I can’t believe that it took so long for it to dawn on me that making a whole row of small frilly-topped carrots might just be a little fiddly to colour. Or that fussy cutting several individual carrots might also be more, well…… Continue reading Easter: Bunny with carrot

Easter: Jump rope bunny

I have thought of so many different designs for this month’s challenge image in the last three weeks, but I wasn’t really happy with any of them. Then I finally came up with one that I actually liked enough to make. How: I started by printing out the bunny on Copic-friendly Neenah solar white card,… Continue reading Easter: Jump rope bunny

Christmas card: Christmas Bently

What: A Christmas card for my other half’s sister. She loves bunnies, so what better than a bunny bearing gifts. The idea: To make a Christmas bunny shaker card and to use some paper from my collection of paper pads. How: Bently bunny was printed onto Neenah solar white, coloured with Copic markers, and fussy… Continue reading Christmas card: Christmas Bently

Blank card: Inktense bunnies

What: Time for a bit of variety — I’ve been mostly using my Copics during the colouring challenge, so I thought I’d have a bit of a change and break out the Inktense pencils, which seemed like they’d be a good match for this cute bunny digi stamp. How: The Inktense pencils live up to… Continue reading Blank card: Inktense bunnies

Birthday card: 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… Continue reading Birthday card: Bunny in a field

Birthday card: Shiny googly-eyed bunny

What: A cutesy birthday card with all the shiny thrown at it for my neighbour. How: I sketched out the rough layout I wanted, fussy cut some masks and used them to figure out the correct stamping order for the bunnies, cupcake elements and flowers. I stamped the bunnies and cupcakes with Memento ink and… Continue reading Birthday card: Shiny googly-eyed bunny

The Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge #12

What: Day twelve of the second Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge and today I really did simplify the colouring with a cute little critter and his umbrella. Inspired by: The idea for the die-cutting of the panel came from Jennifer McGuire, though I have yet to try the dot shading technique she demonstrates in… Continue reading The Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge #12

The Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge #10

What: Day ten of the second Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge. And this will also be my entry for Gerda Steiner’s monthly challenge; it may not be my only entry as she was kind enough to provide two digital stamps to play with… How: I printed the bunny out onto lightweight watercolour paper and… Continue reading The Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge #10
