Inkspirational: Critters That Hop

It's a Designers Choice challenge at Inkspirational starting today, and I just so happen to be the designer that chose the theme: Critters That Hop! When I picked this idea, I had every intention of making a frog card when the time came. But then it was the middle of March, it's slowly approaching spring in my neck of the woods, and Easter is a month away! Out came a bunny: 

I revisited a technique I haven't used for a long time - debossing a focal area in my main panel. I die cut three squares out of cardboard, adhered them together, and then used the result with my die cutting machine for my focal square. In that square I stamped and embossed my little bunny, colouring him and a bit of grass with Copics. I stamped and embossed my punny sentiment, then added a bit of scoring around the edges to go with the square. Of course I had to add a bit of puff to his tail with a snow marker. 
Since I've had this cute stamp set for-approximately-ever, I'm adding this to the current anything goes Retro Rubber challenge. For the cuteness factor, I'm entering Time Out Challenges

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that all my Ink teammates opted for rabbits, too! But don't let that stop you from choosing any critter that hops - we'd love to see your project in our gallery! 

Supplies: Neenah white cardstock, Lawn Fawn My Silly Valentine stamps, Versafine onyx black ink, Wow clear gloss embossing powder, Copic markers, Marvy Uchida snow marker

Oh gosh, Lindsey, this is SO adorable! What a fun way to create depth on your layers, too, definitely going to try some debossing! Thanks so much for playing at Retro Rubber!

I love your idea of debossing a square for your cute bunny. Simple and effective technique I’ve never thought of.

This was a great idea for a challenge. I've never tried the debossing technique you describe - must do it (when I get my machine out of storage). This is a beautiful , sweet cas design.
