Vintage bunny hugs

Now for something completely different

I have found a new (to me) digital designer
Paulette has the most amazing vintage images in her store (here and here)
and generously shares some as freebies on her blog (Tlc Creations).

As soon as I saw the Spring Bunny with Tulips image,
I couldn't wait to colour and create a card with it.
This image was a freebie from the Tlc Creations Blog (this post).

I printed the image on watercolour paper and selectively added a touch of colour to the flowers and leaves, just like the old hand coloured photos I used to see on the mantle at my Grandparents.

I distressed the edges of the image panel and matted on a slightly larger darker yellow cardstock.  I die cut a dimensional bow and popped it in place with a foam square.

Watercolour paper
Copic markers - tulips - R81 R83
Copic markers - daffodil - Y00Y35 Y38
Copic markers - leaves - G40
Bella! - distress tool
pre scored 6 1/8" card base
Winnie & Walter - Take A Bow Cutaways
foam square (to mount the bow)
Helmar 450 Quick Dry adhesive - to adhere the layers

I am going to enter my card in the following challenges (alphabetical order):
with optional twist Any Pastel Colour
I have used the sketch and put a dimensional bow instead of the sentiment


  1. Tracy this is pure vintage magic. I just adore the way you coloured the cute bunny and of course the bow is just scrumptious.
    This is perfect for our 9th ‘ATG with CREATE WITH TLC’ challenge. Thanks for sharing your talent with us. Good luck and hope to see you play with us again.
