Some bunnies in a pot!

Hi again,

Don't ask me why, but I was having an *Easterly moment*, creating this card with the adorable Penny Black stamp!!
Well, admittedly I absolutely love cats & rabbits, so no real surprise here =)
But also, I was browsing through a couple of challenges lately & definitely got inspired!
So check out my new creation:

Supplies used:
- Penny Black 'Peek a Bunny'
- Caran D'Ache Watercolor Pencils
- Wrapping paper
- Pearl enamel dots
- Craft card stock

See you again soon!

P.S.: This card is for the following challenges:
>> Time OutChallenge – CASE Alice
>> PennyBlack Saturday Challenge – Hot Summer Colours
>> PennyBlack & More Challenge – Summer Flowers (ok admittedly I only have flower pots here & a few leaves on the side but I think it sill counts)
>> CAS(E)This Sketch #134 (with my image & the sentiment moved to the other side) 
>> SSS Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

Hello dear crafters!

It really seems as if I had disappeared lately! The last few weeks were so soaked up with business & leisure travel, but now I'm back & very keen on getting my fingers inky again!!

To start my mojo again, I just had to create a relaxing summer themed card – look what came out:
And here is a close-up of that cute little kitty snoozing in the hammock:

This little kitty is a single wood mounted stamp which I have in my stash since quite a while & I absolutely adore it! Not sure who's the designer though, but it's so super cute I find.

If you look carefully at Lawnfawn's "Life Is Good" hammock, then you'll see that it is actually a little smaller than here on my card. TRICK: Just stamp half of the hammock to one side, stamp the other half with a little distance apart (as big as you want the hammock to be, although I think stretching it for an inch or more won't look very good anymore), take a fine black marker & connect the dots. Voila, here you have a larger hammock for larger critters ;-)

Watercolor is still very much in fashion, and I love it as much as most of you, so I've created a very simple background by simply drawing 3 soft colored lines to mimic the sky, the ocean & the beach.

Lot's and lot's of foam squares make this card really POP!

supplies used:
- Lawnfawn "Life Is Good"

- Paper Smooches "Get Outta Town"

- Distress Inks: Wind Honey, Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass, Spiced Marmelade (hammock)

- Watercolor Pencils (Caran D'Ache) for the kitty, & the palm trees

Thanks for stopping by & I hope to see you again soon!


P.S.: I am participating in the following challenges with this card:
