I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with a cute little bunny birthday celebration! This uses three different sets – Starry Scene, We Herd and Essential Sentiments – from three different companies – Avery Elle, Waffle Flower and My Favorite Things – and was partly inspired by this set of cards from Yainea. It’s such a great and simple design that you can customise both colour-wise and scene-wise to your tastes.
I started out by stamping the Starry Scene background onto an A6 card panel with some Distress Oxide inks in Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon and Faded Jeans. Here’s a tip: to get a smooth transition between the colours, after inking up the portion of the stamp use an ink blending foam to blur the lines. This worked wonderfully on the Distress Oxides! I set these aside to dry to work on the foreground.
I stamped out the group of bunnies and balloons from the We Herd set in some MFT Extreme Black ink. I coloured these with my alcohol markers, sticking to cool greys and contrasting reds and oranges. I cut these out with the coordinating dies.
Using some foam tape, I popped up the pieces over the background panel. I added some of the balloon strings with a black pen and a little bit of Wink of Stella to to add some sparkle to the balloons.
