We have such a fun theme for this week's Craft Your Passion challenge. It's Party Animals and we want to see images with animals celebrating. My card once again reflects my very quirky sense of humour. I used an image from QKR Stampede. So many of the images there make me laugh and are so much fun to colour. I coloured Monsieur Bunny (Daydreaming Bunny) with Prismacolor pencils and then fussy cut him. I inked the edges with a black Pitt brush pen as usual so that the white from the cut cardstock didn't distract from the rest of his lovely grayness :)
The background papers are from a few sources. The blue is from a Cloud 9 Design paper pack. It has very faint tone on tone vines on it. The green, the cake and ice cream border, and the striped piece are from Paper Wishes Birthday paper pad. The balloons, which were hand drawn, were cut from scraps and popped up on layers of foam tape for dimension. White embroidery floss is tied around the pink balloon and glued in two places to create the curl in the balloon tie.
Rhinestone hearts were used to separate the words on the border and repeat the black from the balloon, and Monsieur's eyes. White dots and faux stitching were done with a paint pen. The top corners of the blue layer were punched with a 5/16 circle punch before that layer was matted on a darker blue cardstock. The word party is done with a Dymo labeller.
Just a simple card but it makes me laugh. He looks like such an enthusiastic bunny so ready to party...or not. Perhaps he's already started partying without us and that's why he looks this way. Either way, it's a fun story. Thanks for stopping by today. Monsieur Bunny would get up to thank you himself but apparently it takes too much effort. Maybe we should start the party without him :) Be sure and pop over to the Craft Your Passion Challenge blog to check out the rest of the Party Animals (and I don't mean the Design Team...LOL)
