Birthday Bunnies

Hello all my inky friends!  I hope you've been doing well recently. I know I've been a bit MIA lately...I've been strolling down memory lane.  I rescued a bunch of old family photos and paper memorabilia from a dumpster.  Yes I've been dumpster diving - well technically Bob (youngest son) did the diving (thanks Bob!), I did the sorting - LOL!!   I can't wait to share some of it with brought back so many memories as well as surprises as I hadn't seen most of the photos and none of the other ephemera.

Anyway, today I took a bit of a break to make a card for a friend!  She recently turned 50 and is having a celebration over on her blog - Crafty Nomad - a Bunny Hop - lol...  She loves bunnies and is featurning bunny art on several of her posts. She invited everyone to help her play along by posting a bunny card of our own creation so I thought I'd join in the fun.  Here is the card I made her....

To make the card I sprinkled a tiny bit of Nuance pigment powder onto my craft blue, turquoise and a lime green color.  Remember, just a teeny tiny bit - a little goes a long way when using it for monoprinting.  I then misted the powder with water and pounced several white card panels on the resulting colorful mix.  I then let them all dry.

Next I stamped the bunnies onto one of the panels, colored with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and used an Inktense watercolor pencil to create the grass.  Finally I stamped the sentiment then mounted it onto a blue card blank.

A close up of the bunnies...
I tried to give them each their own personality. 
This was so much fun I may have to make another bunny card!
