Spots and stripes for Easter

The current challenge over at Fab n Funky is to use spots and stripes. I decided to do some paper piecing again, but this time chose a more sensible image! I used a woodware bunny stamp and stamped it twice on different papers, spotty and stripy. Then set about mixing it up, this had the added benefit that I ended up with two cards. I stuck the bunnies on 6x6 kraft card blanks and then added a little colour and shade with spectrum noir pencils. I added in some faux stitching round the edges with a white gel pen to tie in with the stitching on the bunnies. I've added in a second picture so you can see the spots and stripes more easily. The stamp set came with an Easter sentiment, however even though I'm sending these as Easter cards I left it off. The cards are going to two friends off the rabbit forum and they can leave them up then as long as they want. Hope you all have a lovely Sunday. Hubby and I are off to a posh garden centre to meet up with my parents for a coffee as it's roughly halfway between us.
