Bunny Basket

It’s been awhile since I colored a House Mouse image, but Spring is near and maybe it’s time for a cute bunny. I kept the coloring of the bunny fairly simple. I added a little depth to the basket by shading with BV00 – simple and quick!

Bunny Luv

While I like traditional baby colors and soft pastels, I really prefer non-traditional  color combinations, especially when the results are gender neutral so that I can have appropriate cards on hand whether it’s a boy or girl.

I decided to use Bunny Luv by House Mouse Designs depicting a mother’s love for her baby as the central image. I still had on hand enough of the Sealed with a Kiss patterned card stock by Doodlebug to add as an accent. I wanted to play off the hearts in the stamped image with the design of the card stock. And while brown and red are probably not traditional baby colors, I think this combination works and I’m pleased with the end result.

The inside sentiment is an image that I created in PicMonkey using the font Mirabella which I purchased from Creative Market.

Wreath Kiss Redux

I colored this image a few weeks ago and posted a sneak peak. Last night I finally got around to putting it together as a card. While I can’t say that I’m fond of coloring leaves in general, I do like how this one turned out, especially with all of the green combinations.
