Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - Bunnies, Chicks or Eggs

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

Kim is hosting today and our challenge is 'Bunnies, Chicks or Eggs'.

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to be just cards, as long as it meets the challenge! 

Hope you will join in.

And here is my project for the challenge:


To make this card I started with a piece of watercolour paper which I coloured with Distress Oxide inks by applying it to a craft mat and then pulling the paper over it and drying between colours.

Stamp any woodland style background with the first and second generation ink to give depth to the background.
The little hares were a free stamp from the Craft Stamper Magazine and I heat embossed these after stamping them.

Now you will need to cut a section of this and edge it with a matching ink.

Next prepare the card blank and mat it with a plain matching card.
I decided to make this into a Tri Fold.

Stamp, colour and cut out the hare.
I used a Hobby Art Stamp for this - CS124D March Hares, adding a little highlight with a white gel pen after colouring.

I think positioning the hare like this with the smaller ones towards the back gives great depth to the design yet still gives a flat card which is good for posting.
One more look at the finished card.
I added a mat on the outside fold before mounting the main piece which I had stamped using a stamp by Sheena Douglas and then added Stickles glitter glue.
I also added a mat inside which could have another sentiment or a note from you to the recipient.
The sentiment on the front is from a set by Tracy Eason and available from 'Which Craft' and the birds on the branch from another free magazine set.
 I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with too.
 Happy crafty card making.

Another fabulous card creation Angela, what a great colour palette you've chosen, the silhouette of the grasses really stand out against it.
I adore that Hare stamp from Hobby Art, it has so much character.

Love this Angela. I have the Hobbyart stamp set and the small hares somewhere, so will be looking to make a variant of this for my sister's 50th birthday card. Thanks for sharing.

Fab card Angela! I love your background and the depth you've achieved, plus the Sheena Douglas hare image is great, I think I want it...

Fabulous Angela. I always mean to do a tutorial on a card but as I never know what I am going to do until I have finished it just never happens. Hugs Kimx

Angela Radford said...

Just a quick note that the hare is actually Hobby Art not Sheena Douglas they just look similar.

Craftyfield said...

Yes indeed, very similar, I saw Sheena Douglas and assumed...
