How cute is this little image of the bunny in a shell?!! It's a doddle to colour too - just a sweep of two colours with an aqua painter and a touch of detail with a couple of markers and the job is done. Using watercolour paper is the quickest and most effective way of doing this but I found some scraps of Confetti White and it works well with that too. (I chose a piece that wasn't very speckled because I wanted a clean-looking image for my baby card.) The image fits beautifully in the Decorative Label punch too and makes a very quick card topper. Let's zoom in:
I love these colours and textures - there's something so soft and clean about them that makes them feel perfect for a baby card. The banner is so quick to make from scraps - just cut 1cm strips of each card stock, turn them back to back and cut the end diagonally; turn them back out and glue them side by side to form a ribbon-tailed banner.
Of course these days, we often know the gender of a baby before it's born but some people like a surprise (I know I did with my lovely babies!) But with a quick card like this one...
... it's no trouble to make a pink version too - to cover all eventualities! I shall enter this card into the Less is More challenge where Mandi and Chrissie are encouraging us to make a card out of scraps.
