Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps April Release!
I can't get enough of the adorable animals from the Baby Animals Stamp Set so I combined the adorable bunny with the greetings from the Hand Lettered Thoughts Stamp Set for this super sweet thank you card. The large greetings work perfectly with the Hero Arts Ombre Inks, showcasing the ombre effect perfectly.
For the bunny, I stamped the image from the Baby Animals Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using the Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink. This ink is super light and gave me a great light line for the no-line coloring with Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I colored in the image with the following colored pencil combinations, blending with Gamsol for the seamless look:
BUNNY: 50% Cool Grey (PC1063), 20% Warm Grey (PC1051), Light Peach (PC927)
HEARTS: Crimson Red (PC924), Pink (PC929)
GRASS: Limepeel (PC1005)
Once the bunny and hearts were colored, in, I die cut them with the coordinating Baby Animals Dies. I added detail to the eyes and nose of the bunny with the Sakura Black Glaze Pen and White Opaque Pen. Detail was added to the bunnies whiskers with the Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen.
I die cut a rectangle using the Whimsy Stamps Hand Stitched Rectangle. I stamped the word "thanks" from the Hand Lettered Thoughts Stamp Set using the Hero Arts Ombre Pink to Red Ink. I stamped the remaining greeting under the word, "thanks" with the Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.
I stamped additional hearts and the grass from the Baby Animals Stamp Set on the rectangle and colored in the images with colored pencils.
On the Avery Elle Midnight Collection Card Base I repeatedly stamped the word, "thanks" at an angle using the Simon Says Stamp Smoke Ink. I adhered the die cut rectangle to the card base and finished by adhering the bunny and hearts to the design.
