Sending my love...

Hey, hey!

Guess who is feeling good about sticking to her personal crafty challenge to get more of the older stamps in her stash onto cards this year? It's this girl! Yep, this time around I was flipping through my Purple Onion Designs binder and this sweet bunny, Carmel, caught my eye. I know I've used her once before but this time around I wanted to go in a whole different direction and give her a very spring inspired background to live in. So I pulled out the Wildflowers stamp and the Birch Trees Background to give her a lovely little grove to call home. You might notice that the birch trees look different than they originally stamp and it's because I simply did some selective inking of only three of the trees and moved the stamp here and there between ink applications, allowing me to space them how I wanted them on the card. I love getting more mileage out of my stamps like that! I finished it all off with this great sentiment from the Essential Thoughts sentiment set and and a few pretty pastel embellishments from my crafty stash. :)

Beautiful. I love the coloring. I'm a watercolor artist and I just got some markers to try out. I'm not having an easy time with them. Lol
