Vintage bunny card

Friday, April 2, 2010

I forgot I had this vintage bunny picture on my computer, I downloaded it ages ago. I thought it would be perfect for a vintage inspired Easter card. I also made this for the 'Lets Get Scrappy' Week #3 challenge at The Shabby Tea Room.

I raided my bits and pieces box for the background papers, lace and ribbon. I focused on peach and gold tones to give this card a nice warm feel. I added some stitching detail using the sewing machine in warm gold thread. The stamped green frame is from Anna Griffin In the Garden set. I painted the outer frame in Autumn Wheat Creative Inspirations paint.

The bow detail is a piece of lace gathered in the centre, a satin bow on top and a little bow made from a piece of garden twine. I sewed these together by hand to make them a bit more secure before adding them to the card.

The sentiment is from Studio G and I used blending chalks to soften the edges. I used foam pads to add the sentiment and layered bunny image to the card.

I really like how it turned out, I have a real soft spot for bunnies (who doesn't) and it was a really nice image to work with.
