Happy Birthday Allsorts Challenge!!

Good morning and thanks so much for visiting! As noted in the title, this week Allsorts challenge is turning 11 years old!! Originally we had a nice celebration with lots of prizes planned, but given the current global situation and how it affects us all differently, we decided it's best to cancel the celebration and  hope  to plan another event at a later time when things have improved. So no prizes this time, but I think Brenda will showcase a wonderful Top 10 as this was supposed to be a two week event, which we are keeping this way since it was already scheduled.

Our theme is simply "Anything Goes" and you have until May 22nd to join us.

This cute little bunny stamp set "Flying By" is from Penny Black's newest release Secret Garden. Unfortunately this set appears to be currently out of stock at Scrapbook.com where I got mine. I did find it on Amazon but at a higher price. 




To make my card, I first inked the background (with a circle mask in place) using Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks. The bunny was stamped on a separate piece of cardstock using Memento Tuxedo ink and he's been colored with Copic markers and some Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, then fussy cut. There is a matching die available (lower priced HERE but out of stock currently),  I used my Cutterbee scissors to cut him out. The die cut hill was made using a retired die set from Whimsy Stamps I've had for a long time, but this set by Lawn Fawn is similar. I used some old polka dotted paper from my stash. The sentiment is part of the set Flying By, stamped using  Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. 

The scallop border stamped at the is from a set picked as  prize, but unfortunately I received them unmounted with no packaging and don't remember where it came from....

I brushed some clear Wink of Stella over the flower to give it some sparkle.
