I just couldn't resist pairing sweet Tilda with Lace Jeans with Magnolia's Bunny Background. Tilda is part of the NEW Butterfly Collection and is available as a Pre-Order and the Bunny Background is from last year's Hoppy Easter/Spring Collection. These images remind me so much of my girls as they hunt for Easter Eggs but secretly hope to catch the Easter Bunny too. That sneaky bunny hasn't been caught yet ~ hehehe!
Images were coloured with Copics. Colouring background scenes is a real challenge for me so I tried a dotting technique to give these areas more texture and umph. I've seen this technique throughout blogland but I first saw it on Crissy's Art & Heart. I had a lot of fun with this technique and like how it turned out.
Papers are from the My Mind's Eye, Stella & Rose Collection, called Gertie. Prima Pearls, bunny charm, lace ribbon and butterflies are from my stash. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The border peeking under the lace was created with the Magnolia Doohickey Old Swedish Lace Cutting Die. Once I masked Tilda onto the Bunny background, I cut out part of the main image with a Spellbinder die.
