Bunnies and roses

I don't think I've tried this masking/chalking effect before ... this one was inspired by this week's featured stamper over at Splitcoast - Here's Barbara's original.

I used Brewster Bunny from Eat Cake Graphics -  coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss and glitter added to his bobble tail..  Blingy sequins from Taylored Expressions.  Doodled border.

My second card uses up some leftovers - great to find a sketch that was perfect for it!

Image from Lili of the Valley - coloured with watercolour pencils and Spectrum Noir sparkle added to the flowers.  Pink sequins and some mini gems to finish.

  5. Both those cards are gorgeous Lynne! I love the clouds on that first one, but that second wee cutie is for sure the right choice for our current challenge. Thanks so much for joining in the fun with the Fab 'n' Funky girls this week. I utterly love what you did for our 'Girly & Pretty' challenge. Hugs, Wends x Fab 'n' Funky DT
