Bunny birthday

Sharing another pub with you today - this card was published in the Stamp It! Cards '12 magazine by Paper Crafts.
Funny story behind it - I had promised my oldest brother I would make him a birthday card, and I wanted to do something funny and random. So when I looked at the adorable Hero Arts School Animals set, I knew I had to do something with one of those animals.
The card was relatively easy, except for when I had to draw my own balloon (for lack of a good balloon stamp) and cutting out that tiny hat and making sure the little pom-pom on the top stayed attached to the bottom portion of the hat.
Anywho, this card was made totally for fun and to tease my oldest brother, and I got a good laugh out of it being picked up for publication.
Don't worry, my brother got an equally funny birthday card as a replacement (I hadn't given it to him yet). ;)

My friend Virginia just went through a Stretch Your Stamps series, and it reminded me of how I created the bunny's hat.
First, I stamped the tip top triangle from Hero Arts Mi Casa...

And then I stamped the tiny circle from the top of My Cute Stamps Elegant Birds...

Colored them in, and cut it out!

My lack of knowledge when it comes to Copics is shown here - the ink bled through the colored image, and if I colored directly on the black ink (Staz-on apparently doesn't work well with Copics - dur), it'd get fuzzy.

So thanks so much for the your kind comments and for stopping in here today - have a great one! :)
