An ombre Birthday Bunny

Awk, what a horrible dark photo - the evenings are drawing in already, and it's definitely NOT a summer's day out there!  There's rumours of a heat wave coming (when I say 'heat wave' I mean mid 20s!) but we'll see if it gets this far ;)

Today's project over at MFT's Camp Create is Awesome Ombre.
There was a LOT of faffing about with my BG - I'm I'm not overly happy with how it turned out, but this is about effort #5 and it will have to do!  For such a CAS card it took maybe over 2 hours to make LOL!
I watercoloured some scrap card with the ombre effect for my sentiment die, and then used the same pink in the bunny's jumper and for some splatters on the BG.  Bunny from MFT - popped up on dimensionals.  Silver stars and pink heart from Taylored Expressions.


  1. I love your background and the coloring on your bunny is great. But most of all I like your wee Ruby! (And I love the Antrim Coast, although it sounds a bit chilly now).

  2. I love your background, too, Lynne! I think you've done a fabulous job on this card. I have a feeling that the other BGs that you were dissatisfied with were also really good!!

  3. The background works, it is the elevating element in your design! Nice organization and image treatment! Thanks for leaving this on our front steps here at 613 Avenue Create!

  4. Mega cut image and fabulous background stencilling and splattering. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.

  5. I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds that sometimes CAS cards take the longest time to get right! I really like your background, the grey is so subtle and makes the Happy Birthday 'pop'!
