Happiness Begins with a Hug


Doesn't that bunny make you want to smile? I already have a thing for bunnies and add in those cute little chicks and I am in love with this stamp! The stamp is made by Inky Antics and I won both the bunny and the sentiment from Jackie's blog. When I attended the StampScrapArt tour in Chattanooga last fall, I was able to meet her and she is a great person. I also spent a lot of money in the Inky Antics booth. And to not make any other company feel left out, I felt the need to spend a lot of money in each of the booths! I will miss attending their show this year, but hope to catch them again next year. You know that large white spaces scare me, but I am happy with the way this one turned out. This card is also a departure for me, it measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. I stamped the bunny onto watercolor paper and then used Twinkling H2os to paint a shimmery background around the bunny. The little chicks are colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I used a cool gray pencil to shade around the bunny's body. Paper is from DCWV and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. I'd love to know what you think.

Gina,
That bunny does make me want to smile! He reminds me a little of the bunny in one of the School House Rock videos (I think it's Lucky number 7) anyhoo...just darling! And I love the shimmer you put around all of the too, since it really pops them!
