Honey Bunny

I made this card for a friend, who wanted a pink bunny card for a 3-year-old girl. I hope this paper isn't too grown up, but I really liked the fresh take with an old-fasioned feel. It's designer paper from the 6x6 Urban Prairie pack and I just love it, as you can tell by the 4 different papers on this one card! I don't think it's too many since the focal image is fairly clean with lots of white space and I used some black matting to separate the patterns.

I coloured this image with Prismacolor pencil crayons, blending with odourless mineral spirits. I still need to practice that technique. I used some stickles on the tail and nose for accents.
This bunny was the fifth or sixth attempt, mostly because the ink kept smudging. I tried stazon, versafine, palette, brilliance, and memories, all on whisper white (but not at the same time). Any tips from experienced Prisma-users? I wasn't heat setting the ink - could that have been my problem?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Lovely card Karen - and those papers really are scrumptious!! I use Memento Black Tuxedo when I colour with copics and it works great. Maybe it's worth giving it a go?
