Hidden Beauty

Mroning folks... thought I'd start the day off with my cute little bunny rabbit... always makes me smile and I hope that it makes you smile too... I just love how it is peek a booing from inside the flower pot...
This is such a quick card to make.. first up start off with a blank cardstock, take a piece of green cardstock slightly smaller than your basecard, ink the edges and attach. Cut a piece of white cardstock into a smaller square, again ink the edges and attach to base card. Using nestabilities, cut two scalloped circles, one in lilac, the other in white. mount the lilac circle inside of your smallest white square then on your white circle stamp your image. Now the fun part... colour your image and attach within the lilac circle. Attach a few pins, flowers and gems... voila one complete card.... see I told you it was quick didn't I.... lol
Image - Penny Black
Coloured using the following Sakura Moonlight pens:
Moonlight # 403, # 419, # 424, # 427
Koi water brush
Dovecraft textured cardstock
Prima E-line flowers (green)
Paper Roses (inked)
Pearl embellishments
Hat pins
One of the main things I love about my Sakura pens is the variety of colours that they have, the difference in appearance between the different ranges and how they mix and match together beautifully. I have tried other pens on the market that are proving to be extremely popular at the moment yet I forever return to my beloved Sakura... why... my main thing is that they don't bleed through my stamped image or through the back of my cardstock like other pens out there on the market and that is of utmost importance to me... I hate nothing more than seeing something bleed...
Well, I guess I should stop rabbiting on now and get on with some housework before going to enjoy a day out with hubby... catch you all later.
Toodles for now
