cure for the monday blues #13 Guest Designer: hello bunny

post 1 of 2 for me today...click HERE for my Poppy Sketches post






Hello!

Thrilled to tell you that I'm a Guest Designer for


I was so excited when Taheerah contacted me!  I've been a huge fan of her work and of course, cure for the monday blues!

Here's this week's challenge:


Perfect timing with Easter around the corner, eh?


I was inspired by the

white ceramic bunnies
gold foil wrap on the chocolate bunny
neon colors, particularly the pink
cupcake wrappers

Although my base is Strathmore watercolor paper, which is not white, I used PTI white for the exclusive die by Top Dog Dies, Bunny and Eggs Die set.  Just like the bunny in the upper right hand corner, mine has a neon pink bow.  The contrast in real life is nice because both the Strathmore and the PTI cardstock is quality stuff.

I used the Bella Doily Die by Top Dog Dies in Vellum so you can see the Gelato color wash.


Love that sweet hello die by Technique Tuesday and it has been cut with Chickaniddy Crafts Gold Foil.

Pop on over to Taheerah's to see how she rocked the challenge!

I can't wait to see how you're inspired!

  2. Oh, I LOVE this! So bold and graphic and such a fun mixture of elements. Loving the white on white with the splashes of neon. The vellum doily is such a great foil over the swipe of color. And that bunny is just the cutest thing ever!
