I Spy With My Little Eye...Something Beginning with B" (Challenge No. 12)

Hello and welcome! Today is the start of a new "I spy with my little eye" challenge which takes place right here on my blog. Pauline and I are back with a new theme and we hope you'll join us this month! We had lots of fantastic entries last month so be sure to scroll down to see who made the top 2. Remember, our top picks are invited to join us as guest designers for a future challenge.

But first let's announce our new theme. It was Pauline's turn to select a theme and she chose....

I spy with my little eye...........

"Something beginning with B".

So many options here and I am sure you will have some fun ideas for this one. We can't wait to see what you'll share with us!

Here is the Design Team work.

My Card (Ellie)

B for Bunnies, Blossoms and Blue

For my card I decided to ink up this cute bunny image from the set In the Wild by Aall and Create. I was lucky to get it at a discounted price but it's back to normal price now. I made the background with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink where I applied the ink with a brush onto a wet background for a simple watercolor look. Next I stamped the image using SU's Bashful Blue ink, stamped it again using Versafine Onyx ink on scrap paper and fussy cut after coloring with my Zig Clean Color markers. The blossom has been stamped, colored and fussy cut again to add with foam tape. Before adding the image and circle die cut to the card I stamped an image from Aall and Create set Seeds of Hope in bashful blue ink on the watercolor background, then stamped the little bunnies from the set Miniatures. "Happy Easter" is an oldie from Penny Black. Stickles glitter was applied to the flower centers.
