SSD Sketch #101

I won a free stamp set from Skipping Stones Design a couple weeks back for this card:

I chose Gray Hares, which is a great versatile set for Easter, Birthday, and Get Well Soon cards, and decided to go with the Get Well Soon theme for this card.

The bunny and balloons are stamped in second generation black ink, and then paper pieced. I added a touch of pink to the bunny with my blending pen.

The borders are Kraft borders that I covered with black ink. Rather than sponging the ink on the borders, I think it's faster to just take your inkpad and swipe it over the border. You can very quickly get a very saturated color this way.

One more thing, the sentiment is not normally curved. This is one of my favorite things about acrylic stamps, you can bend them, curve them, etc. In this instance, I shaped the sentiment to follow the line of the bunny.

Even with the paper piecing, this card came together very quickly. Hope you like that little bunny as much as I do!
