The cute Carrot Bunny is this month's progressive challenge image from Gerda Steiner Designs, and I received it for free because I joined Gerda's challenge last month. I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut so I could pop him up with foam tape.
Let's start with the first NBUS item, Poppystamps Thicket Frame die, which is new and never used. I feel like we're peeking through the thicket to spy on this bunny! I die-cut the frame from green cardstock and applied Mowed Lawn Distress Ink with an ink dauber over the leaves and also through the holes in the die.
For the background, I used Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes and did some ink blending with Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Inks and splashed some water droplets. (Twisted Citron is a NBUS item - had it for a while and just removed the plastic!) I stamped the grass stamp repeatedly with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink all over the field. (Grass stamp from Stampin' Up - old wood-mounted stamp that I had for many years - I think this stamp might also be a NBUS item.) The sky was ink-blended with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks and I sprayed some water to add texture.
The sentiment stamp from My Creative Time Color Me Happy was white heat-embossed on a teal scrap. (I've used sentiments from this stamp set before but not this particular one, which is actually two separate words, so they are another NBUS item!)
