Artsy bunny

I love this card, and so did my family when they saw it. I think the patterned paper matched so well to the stripe background on the main panel.


It is hard not to smile when you see the carrot masterpiece. This stamp set from Mama Elephant is just adorable.


The cutest part is probably the little legs sticking out of the bottom of one of the eggs. Love it!

Coral Ranunculus

Ranunculus are such lovely flowers. I watercolored this image from Wplus9 using Kuretake Pearl watercolors.


At this angle, you can really see the pearlescent sheen from the watercolors. So cool!
