Bunny Tilda on Whimsical Log

I just got an awesome new background stamp called Whimsical Log from Make it Crafty. I just could not wait to use it. I thought it would be really cute with Bunny Tilda. This is what I came up with...


Stamp: Bunny Tilda, Whimsical Log
Paper: Basic Grey
Accessories: Flowers, Pearls, Branch Punch, Stickles, ribbon

I used Stickles on my moon to give it lots of sparkle.I should also mention that this is actually a masked Tilda that I stamped and masked before running the the cardstock through the printer for the digi image. It took some thinking but I think I have it figured out.

I am entering this in the Make it Colourful Challenge which is to use red. There is actually a lot of red in the card, but disguised and pink and shadowed. The flowers are colored with Copic Markers RV00, R83 and R85. I added some W1, W3 and W5 for shadows. Tilda is colored with Copic Markers RV00, RV02 and RV04. After I finished my background, I really wanted Tilda to have many more shadows (as it is a night scene) so I used W1, W3 and W5 to add lots of shadow. In the end, I kind of like the effect because it feels like Tilda is a chocolate bunny and I just LOVE chocolate!


I added some polka dot ribbon and flowers for the Basic Grey Challenge (Dots and Spots). 

I used the sketch from Simon Says Challenge for my card...

In addition, I will be entering this card in the following challenges...

Basic Grey - Dots and Spots
Stamp Something - Anything Goes
Just Magnolia - My Favorite Things (Copics, Flowers, Pearls, this new digi image)
Pile It On - Anything Goes

Julie!! You have done what our challenge is all about!! Experimenting with colour! I love that you laid down your reds and then came in with your warm greys to add the shading. She looks gorgeous 'chocolate!!'. :) Now lets move to the background. WOW! I love how you added the sparkly moon behind the log.
