Time Out DT #79, Addicted to CAS #106, SSS Monday -13 March, SSS Wednesday – 15 March, SSS Work It Wednesday – February

Hello … bonjour!  What a wonderful gallery you created for us to admire and enjoy during our 3rd birthday celebrations at Time Out … and what lovely comments you left … thank you so much!  Do come by the Time Out blog next Wednesday to see if you are the winner of any of our fabulous prizes!  In the meantime, I’m hopping in with a sweet little number to entice you to play along with us this fortnight.  We have a CASE the Designer challenge this time round … our designer is the uber talented, super creative, out-of-the-box thinking Jenny from Crafting In The Country.  If you’ve never visited Jenny, you really need to … you’ll be more than wow’d by her awesome projects!  Her wonderful, whimsical card is below … here’s my take on it …

Time Outand here’s Jenny‘s little spring cutie …

My eye was drawn to the sponged background, the stitched panel and the delicious whimsical style … so that’s where I went with my card.  Serendipitously, Jennifer McGuire (in this video) prompted me to use masked inking to create a little scene.  I stamped one of the bunnies from Verve‘s Hip Hop Bunnies onto a piece of white card, coloured him with Promarkers, added a little doodling (gave him inner ears and a smile) and fussy cut him out.  The same bunny was stamped onto a Winnie & Walter die cut panel … and he was masked, as was the bottom portion of the panel, so that the Distress Ink grass could be sponged on (Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn).  I kept the bunny mask in place, masked off the top portion of the panel, and softly blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to create the sky.  Surgery was performed on the sentiment stamp (from the same Verve set) so the hi could be stamped below the supporting words in a different colour.  The fussy cut bunny was popped up on foam dots onto the panel, he had Spectrum Noir clear sparkle applied to his inner ears, nose and tummy … and Glossy Accents added to his nose.  He’d have been hopping if I’d had an action wobbler!  I doodled the grassy tufts and tiny daisies (coloured with a white gel pen and a yellow Promarker) onto the meadow … and sprinkled some sequins and a few dots of Glossy Accents to finish off.

Where will Jenny‘s card take your creative imagination … there’s so much delicious detailing to choose from … we’d love for you to play along!  This fortnight, we’re sponsored by Verve (thanks so much, Julee) … our overall winner (as voted for by the DT) will receive a Verve stamp set of their choice … and will also be invited to design with us in a future challenge.  There’s a special post from Julee over at the Verve blog … including a CASE of Jenny‘s card to inspire you.  All the details are over at Time Out, along with a whole heap of wonderful ideas from our fabulous DT … and from our amazingly talented Guest Designer, my lovely friend Isabelle from Izzy Scrap.   If you haven’t already dropped in on Isabelle, do go … enjoy all the gorgeousness … take a picnic, you’ll be a while!

My little bunny is hopping over to …

Addicted to CAS – Doodle … the bunny detailing and the grass/daisies in the meadow.

SSS Monday – Handmade Flowers … mine are hand doodled … hope that counts!

SSS Wednesday – Bit o’ Green … the meadow

SSSWIW – Use The Word/Colour Green … again, the meadow

Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

    This is a delight Anita, love the whimsical look and adore the way you used the sponging. Also like the placement of the sentiment, I think quite unusual for you? But it add nice balance x

    Such a delightful take on the inspiration card, Anita! Your card made me smile with its delightful bunny and wonderful little scene. Your sponging looks fabulous and I also like the doodling you added. Look at that little field of flowers, too. Well done! 🙂

    I’m so glad you made the little scene for your adorable bunny, Anita. It gave you a chance to do some wonderful doodling. I love those daisies.

    Bonjour! Well if this isn’t the cutest card I have seen you create. Way to go Anita! It is hard to believe that Easter is almost here and tomorrow is St. Pat’s Day. We have our wine group and Cal is the presenter and he is featuring wines from the Bordeux region. All he talks about is St. Emillion. 🙂 Such a great trip.

  7. Conil

    Your bunny’s background is simply dreamy. Clearly, you have mastered the art of ink blending or sponging (whatever it’s called), because it looks perfect. And that charming little rabbit with his knowing smile is a delight. Such a terrific and fun card. Once again, you’ve amazed me, mon amie.

  8. Brenda Lawrence

    Your take on Jenny’s card is delightful Anita! I love the whimsy of it. What a great job you did at masking your funny bunny and inking up your scene. I love it and love those sweet flowers in the grass and the grass tufts. Too cute! Hugs, Brenda

  9. Bev

    And your talent shines through once again! That little bunny in his sweetly doodled meadow is adorable! I love that you gave him a few extra touches! Your sky and grass are perfectly and subtly sponged. Such a sweet card. I’ll have to see if I can play along too! Missing you everyday. Sending xoxoxoxos. : )

    That bunny is super cute! Your card is wonderful Anita! I had to hop on over and let you know! The soft colors and doodles really make it fab! HUGS!

  21. Geri G

    This is off the charts in the ‘cute as ever’ category!!! Great job slicing & dicing the sentiment stamp to get only what you needed/wanted! LOVE how you tucked the loop of the “h” betwixt the words…it looks so cozy and comfortable there! Beautiful inked sky and fabulous doodled grass, inner ears and smile….makes the bunny so darn cute!!!

    Sorry…I’ve been MIA AGAIN…for far too many days! However, it was fun times cuz the ‘busy’ was meeting my new grand-nephew as well as having some nice surprise visits from friends stopping by to say hello 🙂

  22. Jill Vickers

    Such a sweet card Anita – and I absolutely LOVE how you added some extra touches to your bunny – it really completes the image! I love how you customized the sentiment too – it looks amazing!

  23. Jenny Colacicco

    You put so much into this card! WOW. I absolutely love the little unique touches of doodle on the bunny and the flowers (I was actually like ‘oh what is that flower stamp I think i need to get it!’!!) The bunny is so cute. And I love how this is still very CAS even with all the techniques and effort in it.. Just really awesome card and great way to showcase your talent. Jenny x
