Bunnies in Spring

Anything Goes at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best this week.A nice,easy challenge!Please visit the challenge blog to see full details on how to play.One lucky winner will get a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop!With so many fabulous images you’ll be spoilt for choice.Take a look at the beautiful DT creations too.

Here I’ve used Spring Time Bunnies and coloured them with Promarkers.The edges have been inked with Distress Ink and I created a sky effect using a stippling brush.Having spent a fortune on a Grand Calibur and some Grand Nestabilities dies I decided to make a shaped easel card.This was so much fun.I only had scraps of the deeper purple shade card so I cut two smaller pieces and filled the gap with some ribbon.I had enough left over to make a half shape which was perfect to prop the top part up. To add more dimension I cut a frame rather than just mat the image.The only downside with the Calibur is that you can’t use a magnetic mat to hold your Nesties in place 😦 You have to use tape to hold them in place.Not sure if this was an oversight by Spellbinders as the mat was a really great idea.Anyway I chose this sentiment as I thought Spring is such a wonderful season and we should take the time to appreciate it.
