We all go through droughts of crafty inspiration from time to time, but recently my long work hours and then traveling really seemed to sap away all my crafty mojo. But I really wanted to make a card for a lovely friend and mentor who is going through some rough career changes right now. So I searched some of my favorite blogs and crafty websites and found some wonderful color challenges that helped me push through and create this card tonight.
I Copic colored (E30, E31, E35 and R20 for blush and inside ears) a couple of the sweet bunnies from the Lawn Fawn “Hello Baby” stamp set. I also used the simple sentiment, “I look up to you,” from the Lawn Fawn “Mom + Me” stamp set. And what really helped get me going was the phenomenally inspiring and versatile My Favorite Things Blueprints 15 die set that I used with a bunch of spring colored paper scraps from my scrap box. I also used a white shimmery heart that I had previously cut out with the La La Land Doily Heart die set as a backdrop to set off the bunnies from the busy patterned papers.
As some finishing touches, I added irridescent clear sequins, dotted them with silver Stickles, and sprinkled some Recollections blue shimmer spray ink on the background.
