SC635 - Birthday Bunny

So here's this week's sketch over at Splitcoaststampers, if you'd like to join in you can play along here
I wasn't sure at all about this layout as I thought it would look 'odd' with the wonky shaped central panel - my card making OCD kicking in again ;) - but I LOVE how it turned out and I think this is my favourite card I've made for a while!

For my DT card I've used this really old High Hopes bunny stamp.  I'm so pleased with how his fur turned out - I put on a base coat with my watercolour pencils and while it wasn't quite dry, I dotted on a bit of colour with my brush straight from the pencil nib and just kinda built up the texture.
I also added some gloss and glitter to his tail, and went over my tulips with a clear glitter pen.

Wow! This card turned out great! I actually love this layout, too, after seeing your card. I may have to give it a try. Your bunny fur does look fantastic. I'm going to try to remember your brush trick. I think that could even be used after an image has been colored with markers.
