Grumpy Bunny?

Happy Easter,

I really like this stamp from Unity.... well I thought I did.  I colored it up and made this card.  I showed it to my hubby and he said the bunny looked mad.  Now that is all I see when I look at him.  Is he a grumpy bunny?  What do you think?  Is there something I could do to help soften the expression a little. 



No copics today-- I used colored pencils to color the bunny.  I know, I'm surprised too!

Alcohol Pour

Welcome,

I tried something different today.  I usually use a tool of some kind to guide the alcohol to create a background.  This time I just poured the alcohol on the glossy cardstock and let it create its own pattern.  I made several of these cards and they all are different.   Which one do you like?

I finished the card off by stamping a variety of flower stamps on backgrounds.  I love the way the black pops off the colored background.



No Copics used today

Choose Music

Welcome,

Does anyone else have card ideas that float around in their head?  I saw this stamp by Unity and I knew it would pair perfectly with this sentiment.  My first thought was to do color her with pink hair and just rock her out.   However, when I went to color her...it just didn't feel right.  I still wanted a more subtle, mature look for her.   I think  it was the right choice.  I wish I you could see this card in real life.  Her shirt shines (wink of stella)
