March 2011 SOTM Blog Hop

March goes in like a Lion and comes out like a Bunny!.  And this months SOTM is the cutest set of bunnies I've ever seen. It is called "Sensational Season" and it is a set of 10 stamps (D1454).  It is only available for the month of March. Contact your consultant or click here to find out how to get if for a discount, or even free.  So get ready to do the bunny HOP along with us.  If you have come from Melissa Robinson's blog you are on the right path.

One of things I love about this set is that you can do other things, besides Easter (and since I do not celebrate Easter I am happy about that).  I chose to do it as a celebration type card.

It is hard to tell in this picture, but I used dimensional adhesive to pop up the bunny.  I used CTMH markers and I blended a darker color with the  lighter one while still wet and I was able to get the shadowing, similar to the way I use copic markers.  I used paper from "Wings" level 2 and "miracle" dimensional elements (they are so cool, they have a resist pattern on them so all you have to is ink them and voila!)  I added some Mocha "opaques", 1 for the bunny's eye and the 3 others on top.  I like how the bunny adds some whimsy to a more serious looking paper.  I used sunkiss yellow, taffy, key lime, juniper, baby pink, tulip, garden green and olive markers.  As soon as I finished colorin, I did a little shading and immediately blended with the base color.  I am very happy with the way the shading came out.  I also used the blender pen because I didn't have a gray marker so I picked up the ink form the cover of the ink pad to get the gray color of the bunny.
Well this is truly a hop so hop on over to Teri Baxter's blog and see what hopped into her mind this month to create with this set.  If you want to see the complete list of hoppers go to Helen's blog.  However this hop is circular so if you click on the link on each blog it will take you to the next blog.
Hop along with us!
