Peek A Boo . . .

. . . I see you.  Doesn't it look like these little bunnies are playing a game of peek-a-boo?  This is a Penny Black stamp that I've had for several months.  I decided it was time to get some ink on this little cutie!  I have so many stamps that have never seen ink but yet I keep buying more.  Why is that?     

I colored my image using Distress inks and my watercolor brushes.  I added some grass to the image with a Prismacolor pencil.    I stitched my cardstock layers together and added some ribbon and a little butterfly charm.  I recently bought a Joy Crafts flower diecut at a stamping convention so I used that to make my flowers.  I used my Martha Stewart punches for the white around my flowers and also for the little birthday tag.  These little buttons have been in my stash forever and so has my pattern paper.  The paper is by SEI and it's from their Chick A Doo line.  I used PTI Mixed Messages for my sentiment.  I really like that set of sentiments.  It seems to have a little something for every occasion and when I need something small, I always seem to reach for that set.   

Thanks for stopping by!
