Here Comes Petter Cottontail!

This week over at One Powerful Hour Nancy selected the theme Easter.

I am not a huge fan of Easter, the commercial holiday or the types of stamps I have to create art with this theme but I decided to give it a go and while I was at it step out of my comfort zone.

I started with a decorative paper, normally I make my own papers. And then I painted the road on...yep, free handed! There is an iridescent shimmery effect on the road that did not show up in the picture so it is much more eye catching in real life.

I thought it looked really plain so I added some stippled dots in 2 shades and then some swirls in another color. Trying to coordinate them with the paper.

The bunny is from Stampington & Co. and is painted with watercolors. Ever since DH reminded me I had watercolor pencils I have been playing with them...yes, I had forgotten...way to many art supplies...The tail is a round cotton ball and I 3D mounted him on the road.

My finishing touches include the phrase from Repeat Impressions that I added Diamond Glaze to, outlining the road and entire tag with kaleidoscope glitter and lastly attaching coordinating ribbons.

Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
