Spring Card Challenges

Many sites are currently having Springtime card challenges, and I wanted to participate!  One of the challenges was Bunnies, so that was my inspiration for this card.


My Mother-in-law gave me all of her old stamps, and this border stamp was part of her stash.  I am always so glad when a challenge gets me to use her old rubber mounted stamps.  I typically just use my new clear polymer stamps, but there is something special about stamping with her previously loved stamps.  


 I colored the images with both Prismacolor pencils and Copic markers.  The majority of the image was colored with the pencils and then blended with mineral spirits.  I love the effect you can get with the mineral spirits and pencils.  

Products Used
Stamps: Stampin' Up! (border), PTI Friendship Jar Spring Fillers (sentiment)
Patterned Paper: K&Company (from Super Paper Pad), Core'dinations (So Mod)
Prismacolor Pencils, Copics (B00, E33)
Glossy Accents and Diamond Stickles
