"Spring is Late!", said the White Rabbit

 Greetings! It's Tuesday so it's Kathi here today to share a project with you! This week my teammates and I are celebrating spring or Mother's Day. Spring weather and spring flowers seem to be running late here in the Northeast, but my bunnies are back and the Easter Rabbit is scheduled to visit on Sunday. So I opted to create a card with I'm Late Clear Stamp #446 and the Flowers and Gears Clear Stamp Set 195, both by Olga Heldwein for AALL and Create

Here's the card!

I started the card by stamping the flower branch twice and the other flowers from the Flowers and Gears Clear Stamp Set 195 by Olga Heldwein for AALL and Create onto white cardstock with Memento ink. I fussy-cut the flower branch, some separate flowers from the branch, and the individual flowers, colored them with Copic markers, edged them with with a black pen, and set them aside. 

The White Rabbit from I'm Late Clear Stamp #446 by Olga Heldwein or AALL and Create was stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink by Tsukineko, heat set it, and fussy-cut it. Mermaid and Graphite Elements Inks by Lavinia Stamps were smooshed onto my craft mat and misted with water. The watery ink was picked up with a paint brush and used to color the jacket and the hat of the Rabbit. Copic markers were used to color the Rabbit's fur and goggles. A Distress marker was used to color his shirt and vest. A gold metallic pen was used to color the buttons on his vest, the chain, and the pocket watch case. Several layers of Clear Glaze pen was used to add dimension and shine to his goggle lens, the watch crystal, and his buttons.

Background paper was created by brayering  Della Blue Elements Ink onto a 5 x 7 Gel Press using the 2" Speedball Brayer. A piece of  Mixed media paper was used to pull the print, then a very light coat of Confetti Elements Ink was brayered onto the Gel Press. The same paper was placed back onto the Press and the print was pulled again. I repeated the process again with Della Blue Elements Ink. The gel press print was sprayed with Glamour Gold Prism Glimmer Mist, which was also used to splatter the print. The print was trimmed to size and edged with with Della Blue Elements InkGlamour Gold Prism Glimmer Mist was sprayed onto a piece of foam foam and used to edge the piece a second time. 

The background was debossed with a clock patterned plate to add some subtle visual interest. A piece of clock-printed Washi tape was added to the base of the background panel, then all the elements were adhered as shown.
