Oh, Bunny

Hello.  Welcome.  Uniko have a lovely inspiration photo of a floral suitcase in a meadow with a pot of flowers and I thought maybe if I made the suitcase bigger and added a patchwork rabbit and now I'm thinking about the YNS sketch, which is wondrously simple, and I might also have hit their colours!!, and Time Out have some wild floral wallpaper in their inspiration photo.......

OK, so he's not patchwork, but I love him anyway!!  I stamped Uniko's Somebunny on DCWV patterned paper and then coloured with Promarkers, Verdigris and Sage Green, and fussy cut.  Now some of the really observant amongst you might be thinking that that flowery wallpaper has a few misprints!  Well, that was due to my brain wave.  Can you see it waving??  You see in the Somebunny set there is this tiny little flower stamp and I looked at the dots on the paper and thought that would fit in there and LO!! it did!!  No really, I did that.  

From this........

To this!!  Crazy, but very cool.  A few were not quite centered but that's the joy of handmade.  I found a bit of grey ribbon that also has circles on it and I used the 'hoppy' from the Uniko set and a 'birthday' stamp from Stamplorations for my sentiment.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  4. I would never have noticed the flowers not all behaving if you hadn't pointed it out!! I totally agree that things like that are the reason we love handmade things because they aren't 100% perfect. I think your card is adorable and never think to stamp images on patterned paper, such a cool idea. And I always enjoy your cards at TIME OUT!
