March, Yellow and a Rabbit
Here's my next page for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge where for March the words are YELLOW and RABBIT.
Yellow is fine, but I was struggling with the Rabbit part. I decided it was time for a new stamp but Mr Google wasn't helping. I'm not keen on cute/cartoon images of which there are hundreds but I did in the end find this Deep Red Rubber Bunny Rabbit stamp - very realistic and I'm sure will come in useful for Easter too!!
The background is a blend of Oak House Studio Pigment Inks - Green as Grass, Lemon Yellow, Golden Yellow, Tangerine and some Green Oak for the catkins. The stamps are from Chocolate Baroque's Spring Foliage set and I've used Potting Soil and Emerald Green Archival. The grass is the edge of an Oak Tree stamp and I've just finished with the calendar for March.
I think my rabbit looks quite content in his glade and it was fun to do. Thanks for visiting and for your comments - they are much appreciated.
