Twue Love...

Hi and welcome to my Paper Players post for this week.  Claire is challenging us to make a Valentine card to or from our furry friends.




For my card, I decided to try the camouflage die-cut technique as shown by Laura Bassen.


But first I have a confession to make.  I originally made this card for Jaydee's sketch challenge last week (look familiar?).  Then when I saw Claire's theme challenge, I decided to use this card for that challenge instead and whipped up last week's card in about 10 minutes!

To make this card, firstly I masked off a section of white card and sponged Sea Glass, Maliblue and Audrey Blue in an ombre fashion from left to right.  I then die cut the word "love" from Wet Paint dies - once from the sponged panel and four times from scrap white cardstock.  I stacked them all up and put them back into the hole.

The bunnies were colored with Copics then die-cut and popped up on foam tape.  I finished off the card with a few sequins.



Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's cards - they're amazing!

Products used:

Stamps:  Honey Bunny (Mama Elephant)
Ink:  Audrey Blue, Maliblue, Sea Glass (SSS), Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  Audrey Blue, white
Accessories:  Honey Bunny die (Mama Elephant), Wet Paint die (PTI), Sequins

Cheers
Karren

Super cool - I love this card and even more so after I read how you created the inlaid diecut sentiment. Thanks for explaining how you achieved it!

Absolutely adorable, Karren! Nothing is cuter than a "bunny butt"...unless it is TWO "bunny butts"! A perfect CAS creation!

Karren, I love those little bunnies with their cross tails! Great use of the technique with the bi-colored "love". The sequins are the perfect finishing touch.
