Hello there, today I am delighted to be back as a guest over at Foiled Fox and I have a card for you featuring My Favorite Things Sweetest Somebunny. A lovely set with story book images you can use to create a Spring/Summer bunny scene – especially when paired with the Stacey Yacula/MFT Scene Builder set.
I often like to mix and match my mediums on a card, I think it adds interest to the card. So, although I Copic colour my images, I watercoloured my background. I love the softness you can get with a watercolour background and the texture you get using a different cardstock.
I took some Arches cold pressed paper and the Altenew 36 Pan Watercolor set and using a 3/4″ flat brush, added Coral Berry, Warm Sunshine and Forest Glades from top to bottom, blending them together as I went. I let it dry and then added a second layer for a little more depth. Next, I stamped the Scene Builder onto Neenah 110lb and coloured it with Copics – I did stamp a few extra accents like the flowers and grass mounds as those details really add to building the scene. I also stamped one of the bunnies from Sweetest Somebunny, coloured that and used the coordinating die-namics to cut it out. Copic markers that I used are listed below. I set them aside to work on the frame.
I cut a panel of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and die cut an oval window using the Hero Arts Nesting Infinity Oval dies. I took the same set, picked two different size dies, and die cut a white frame. The frame was adhered onto the window panel with wet adhesive and I added some foam tape to the back ready to add to my base.
The watercolour background was adhered onto my Neenah Desert Storm card base with DST. I then added the tree/grass panel on top with DST. Finally I popped up the bunny using foam tape.
To finish the card, I stamped and heat embossed a greeting from the set onto pink cardstock. It was trimmed with a MFT Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strip die. This was then attached with a mix of foam tape and wet adhesive as it straddles the frame.
I hope you like the card – it’s been absolutely AGES since I created a card using a kraft cardstock and I forgot how much I like it. Such a welcome change from my usual white! And I think the cardstock colour combines really well with the warm colours of the background and sunny feeling of the card.
A big thank you to Foiled Fox for having me as a guest again – it’s always a pleasure to be on their blog. And thank you as always for joining me today, I appreciate it and I will back to share another card with you soon. In the meantime, happy crafting!
