CARDS DETAILS

I have two cards to share today – very simple and easy to make and are almost identical. These are smaller, 4-bar cards, both are top folding.

To create “Some Bunny Thinks You’re Amazing” card I first stamped bunny image from the Some Bunny stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink on Arches Hot Press watercolor paper. I used my mini MISTI stamp positioner and double stamp the image. I also stamped several hearts in black.

To watercolor these I picked Gansai Tambi watercolors. I mixed black with a bit of white and diluted with water to create the perfect shade of gray and also mixed pink with white to create a very pastel pink color to color the hearts and some parts of the bunny.

There aren’t coordinating dies for this stamp set, so I cut my images out using scissors.I cut the bunny out leaving a small white border; the hearts were cut out right up to the edge.

After adding a strip of patterned paper from March kit I also added a strip of Green Apple cardstock and adhered a white cardstock panel on top. I stamped Some Bunny Thinks You’re Amazing, foam mounted the critter and adhered cut out hearts.

My second project, “I Think You’re a Cool Chick” was created the same way. Here I also added some very light green, almost pastel green watercolors to color the spots and stripes on the eggs.

To emphasize the chick is indeed very cool I foam mounted a pair of trendy-looking sun glasses onto its head. I also used Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew to add dimension to the spots on the egg and sunglasses, love the way that turned out.
