It’s Sabrina here with a Friday post for you, and I am using the Hiroshige moon viewing rabbits stamp from Art Neko to create an Easter card. After all, why can’t the moon be a sun if it suits us? Spring is meant to be here now and Easter isn’t all that far off, so I thought the rabbits should come out to play. We had some lovely warm weather for a while (and enough sunshine to make the daffodils really glow) but this week we’ve even had some snow (rare in Ireland) and biting winds. Enough to send any self-respecting rabbit back into his burrow to escape from it all!
I stamped my image on white card with Versafine black ink, and coloured it with Polychromos pencils, using a Zest-It for blending. After cutting with a circle die, I added some dots of pale yellow Liquid Pearls to create some spring flowers to the meadow – a tasty treat for the rabbits. Then I simply layered the rabbit panel onto a larger blue circle and then onto a die-cut decorative base. To finish off, I dabbed a little gesso on with my fingers for a soft cloudy sky – no threatening grey with rain on the horizon here.
There are some other lovely rabbit stamps available from Art Neko which would make cute Easter cards – I think these long-eared rabbits are especially sweet. And if you’d like some charms to dress up your Easter creations with, look no further than these little Easter basket charms or the textured Easter egg charms.
Thank you so much for coming by the Art Neko blog this week. I hope you’ve enjoyed all the lovely floral Spring creations the team have been sharing with us – check back next week to see some more inspiring ideas.
