Sunday Snippet Card - March Hares

Hi Everyone,

And a very happy Sunday to you too. After almost two weeks of not being able to do much in the way of crafting it gives me great pleasure to tell you that my mojo returned yesterday - yay!
The first card I made has a topper with a lovely image of family of hares - very seasonal.

Here's how it was made:

  1. I started with the topper, stamping the image from the March Hares set (Hobby Arts) on to a scrap of smooth white cardstock, using a Versafine ink pad, Olympia Green.
  2. It was then coloured with Windsor & Newton watercolours mixed to create browns, greens, blues and yellow.
  3. Once dry the greeting was stamped on the topper, again with the Olympia Green ink, which was then matted on to some dark green cardstock, another scrap.
  4. To a cream card base measuring 4½" I glued yellow polka dotted patterned paper, Summer Textures 6"x 6" paper pad, trimmed to leave a very narrow margin of the cream base showing. Leftover patterned paper was used to decorate inside and back of the card.
  5. Finally, the topper was fixed with sticky pads, to create some dimension, to the front of the card. 

The March Hares stamp set has a nice selection in it, including another larger hare image and several wild flower and grass stamps - all very easy to colour and usable at this time of the year. In fact, I'm now working on a second card using the flowers and grasses ... hope I'll be able to share it soon as my crafting life get's back to normal.

Having used two snippets of cardstock on this card I'm submitting it for our Head Snippeteer Di's consideration at Pixie's Snippets Playground.

Take care and happy crafting,

Absolutely perfect Elizabeth! At first I thought this was a pre-coloured topper - beautifully stamped and coloured by your own fair hand I see, Lovely to see you in the Playground again.
