Wascally Wabbit... Plus Tag Winner

...Isn't it the best time of year? With all those acid greens and yellows popping out of branches and the ground, Spring is my fave season.. so inspired by the colours of the new leaves budding on the tree outside my window, I have made a tag. But first, to business! Last Saturday's taggy giveaway had 57 lovely and muchly appreciated comments... and I hopped over to see Mr. Random.org to ask him to pick a number for me... which he kindly did... and that number was #24, which tallies with a comment left by MINXY. Please can you email me your addy so I can pop the tag into the post for you!


I don't know about you but I tend to see colours in the real world and marry them up with colours in the Distress range... so we could have a lovely Rusty Hinge and Aged Mahogany sunset... or a Wild Honey and Worn Lipstick sunrise. (please tell me it isn't just me that does that... is it???) Anyways... Scattered Straw, Crushed Olive and Pine Needles made up my colourful background, all blended and spritzed with water, then edged with a very teensy smidge of Black Soot to frame the design. The butterflies are Wild Honey with Rusty Hinge and the Wabbit... well, he was coloured direct to rubber with Distress Markers, stamped onto Grungeboard, embossed with clear a few times and then overpainted with Snowcap Dabber and a waterbrush.


I had better get going... I have my Sunday Stamper entry for tomorrow to make... oooh, it is the 200th week of challenges, so there will be candy up for grabs... please do hop back tomorrow to check it out!! Thanks for looking... and Happy Easter! TTFN

Congratulations to Minxy for being the winner last Saturday. Hels your tag to-day is beautiful,the colours especially. I love colours. We leave on Monday for a few days with my younger daughter & family, so I'm hoping that maybe I can do something to-morrow before I go. Need to get a move on though if that is to happen. Have a lovely Day. Hugs Rita xx

Hi Hels - love that little ol' rascally wabbit and the spring colours on your fab tag. I got my new Craft Stamper yesterday and I just had to say how much I loved your frames they are fantastic. I need to go shopping to Ikea! Have a great Easter.

I'm totally with you on the colours at this time of year Hels. I bore my OH to death every time we go out repeating the litany 'Oh I do love the colours on the trees and hedges in the Spring!' for the zillionth time. Your tag recalls these colours perfectly and definitely has a zing to it. Mr Wabbit is smashing too!

Looking forward to tomorrows post too but then that's nothing new!

Hugs
