craft barn challenge for March...yellow and bunnies.


A great couple of words for March. I just love this month. It is warmer, lighter and brighter...spring is definately here! So I decided to have a go at a spring sunrise with standing stones and bunnies. A spring soltice if you will.

I used watercolour paints to create the sunrise which is yellow through to a deep orange. Next to make the stones. I tried crackle texture paste and it cracked beautifully and then fell off. Whether it does not like water colour as a surface to adhere to I dont know. So I used more water colour. Next came the bunnies. I dont have a stamp and not good at drawing so reverted to when I use to work in a pre school and used my middle and little finger dipped in brown acrylic paint, added ears and tail. Not bad. Finally to add the grasses and flowers. This was done using the side of a acrylic block and various stamps I have from stampin up and c'dees.

I am pleased with the result, thanks craft barn for chiving us all along.
