Hip Hop BunniesBunny Hop Die Set
Welcome Plain Jane












Had lots of fun creating this mixed media Easter card :)   I've used the Viva la Verve sketch for this week.

The background is a stencil monoprint created with a stencil and three shades of Distress Inks.  If you've never tried this quick and easy way to make a background, here's my tutorial.  Then I mixed up some fiber paste and ink and stenciled a piece of vellum.   The vellum piece was machine stitched to my background. A little square of turquoise  paper was embossed with the same stencil as was used in the background for even more texture.

Don't you just adore this bunny?  hehehe  There are two more darling bunnies in this set :) It has been die cut with the coordinating die from the Bunny Hop Die Set and colored with Copics.  The same goes for the little bow ties around the card.  And for the sentiment, just a quick little shaker design filled with pretty, sparkly stuff.

Your next stop on the hop is Mackie...enjoy!  Here's the complete list if you've gotten lost along the way.  Don't want you to miss out on the fabulous prizes!
