Fusion Challenge - St. Paddy's Day

Hi there blog friends! It's time for another challenge at Fusion and our theme is 'St. Paddy's Day'! As you know, you can use the sketch or the inspiration photo, or both when creating your card...it's up to you ~ I used a few creative liberties with the sketch and the green/yellow/white color palette from the photo to create my card:


I haven't inked up these Mama Elephant critters in the longest time, but I thought the bunny and umbrella would work perfectly here. I masked, then inked the background with Oxide inks fading into white toward the clouds and colored the images with Copic markers. 

This challenge is a great opportunity to create a few cards for St. Patrick's Day, and we would love to see your creations in the Fusion Gallery

Thanks so much for stopping by,






Ingredients:
Stamps: Mama Elephant - Up & Away
Dies: Mama Elephant - Up & Away, Landscape Trio
Ink: Tim Holtz - Oxide Inks; Versafine
Misc: Clear EP; Copic Markers

My own bunny hasn't seen the light of day since Bobby played with it! Thanks, Barb... you always remind us why we fell in love with him/her in the first place: adorable!
Love your blended panel, and how you've grounded it ... no pun intended! xx

What a cutie, Barb ... this little bunny is just adorable against your gorgeous blended background! I have a few of his siblings and cousins (from my Lake House stash!) and struggle to figure out how to use them ... thanks for the inspiration! Hugs, Anita :)
