It's no secret that I love the Penny Black bunnies (and their animal stamps in general) and although these particular ones are wood mounted and have been retired some years ago, I reach for them every year for spring themed cards.
Both were stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and watercolored with my Zig Clean Color markers and a Zig Detailer waterbrush. I used Winsor and Newton watercolor paper.
Here I used the stamps "Bunny Kiss" and "Happy" (sentiment). The butterfly die is part of Penny Black's Flowing Butterfly die. I die cut it with white card stock, trimmed off the one I wanted to us and inked with Mustard Seed Distress ink with a little bit of Wild Honey ink on the edges of the butterfly. The paper strips are from my drawer of paper scraps. These particular ones are by stampin up but long retired.
The image stamp I used on the second card is called "What a Spring". Another wood mounted one by Penny Black, unfortunately not so easy to find now but you might have some luck on ebay or etsy. Again stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and watercolored with Zig Clean Color markers and Zig Detailer brush on Winsor & Newton watercolor paper. The sentiment I used here is from an old Easter stamp set by Stampin Up called "Gifts of Spring". I used the scallop circle die from Penny Black's die set Pinwheel that I received as a gift from our wonderful team leader Brenda a year or two ago. Paper strips are from my stash, and here you can see why I keep even the smalles pieces of papers! They worked here so perfectly especially the pink stripes matching the way I colored the tulips so well. And you can always use some polka dotted paper in black and white :)
I embellished with a button and some May Arts Natural Jute Twine. Mounted onto Hero Arts Dove White 100lb card stock to comlete the card
