Today I'm playing along with two challenges that went quite well together! Over at the Paper Players challenge there is a theme challenge; Easter Bunny. The Less is More challenge this week is to use 3 pastel colours.
I was fairly shocked when I could only find 1 rabbit in my entire stamp collection! I guess I will have to get my hands on some more easter stamps to have a bit of variety 😀 I tried out water colouring today, which I haven't done in a very long time. Here is what I came up with using pink, purple and yellow.
I stamped the bunny repeatedly with staz on ink on a piece of watercolour paper and then I used a paint brush to gather colour off the tip of some watercolour pencils and then washed the colour over the stamped rabbits. The rabbit layer is layered once with yellow and then adhered to the card base with foam dots. Finishing touches were a banner sentiment and a button with a bakers twine bow.
I've also been making bunny earrings today! I had a lady that really liked my bright yellow bunny earrings I was wearing the other day and asked for a pair. She loves the colour pink, so pink bunnies it is! Instead of the bright pink I usually make them in I went with a more vintage pink and vintage brass niobium ear hooks; she loves vintage too!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great crafty day!
