Skating Bunnies

Welcome back for another Merry Monday post.  Today, the lovely Katie has challenged us to use critters on our cards.  Fun, right?  




Critters are so trendy right now in card-making and I couldn't wait to take Cora and Thomas out on a trip to my craft desk and create a little scene with them as the stars :)



I stamped Cora and Thomas onto some white cardstock then masked the top of Cora's head before stamping the pond image over top.  I colored the scene with Copics and used a very simple layout as the image is so big.  The sentiment comes from a Simon Says Stamp/Clearly Besotted collaboration.  I made a tiny little rolled rose from some Rose Red cardstock and a 1/2" circle punch for Cora's hat.



Thanks for visiting.  The Design Team has some wonderful critter cards to inspire you.

Products used:

Stamps:  Cora & Thomas, Pond (Purple Onion), Holly Berries (SSS)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  Island Indigo, X-press It, Rose Red
Accessories:  1/2" circle punch, pearl, Copic markers

Cheers
Karren

So cute! Love the rose on Cora's hat... I don't know if you know the TV show Downton Abbey... Countess of Grantham in that show is called Cora as her first name. That POD stamp Cora reminds me of her... I really can't explain why, it just does. Now that you added that rose for her, she looks even more like her... :)
