You're Snow Sweet! + Candy :-)

Our challenge this week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar is to make a baby card or card for a young child. I made this card for my daughter Danni as she loves this sweet Bunny Bernadette by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. You also get the Snow Sweet sentiment too! Danni has already coloured her Bernadette which is ready to be made into a tag for her teachers Christmas gift. I'll be sure to show you when she's finished.

I have also used the wonderful sketch below from this weeks Stamp Something Challenge.

Bernadette is watercoloured using distress inks. She was stamped in Stazon Jet Black onto Fabriano Watercolour Paper (140lb). I used a small Sakura Koi brush, though I do not fill the tank with water.

Distress ink colours used for my sweet Bunny - Fur: Scattered Straw, Tuft on her head: Frayed Burlap. Nose, Cheeks, hand Muff and Ear Muffs: Worn Lipstick, Inside her ears: Tattered rose with tea dye and then a little Worn Lipstick at the bottom. Scarf: Peeled Paint, slight shadow on the band of her ear muffs: Weathered Wood. I also added some distress stickles in worn lipstick to her ear muffs.

The papers are from the gorgeous Basic Grey paper pad Eskimo Kisses. The colours and designs in this pad are just so pretty! Punches used - SU Snowflake and Martha Stewart Artic Snowflake. The buttons is from the Bouquet collection. Also a little 4mm flat back pearl added to the corner in baby pink and Burgundy Jute Ribbon.

Want to win the stamp Kraftin' Kimmie Bernadette as seen on my card today? Leave your details with Mr. Linky below. I will announce the winner on Sunday. The popular gals Clara, Antoinette and Charlotte are back in stock!
