A Tiny Craft: Bunnies!

Welcome to the April edition of A Tiny Craft! With many celebrating Easter and/or spring, our theme this month is BUNNIES! I have a set of Tim Holtz critter dies that have been waiting patiently in my stash, so out came the rabbit:

After watercolouring and assembling these four bunny faces, I know why I would never be on a die cutting design team. :D Fiddly!!! The four coin bases all come from pre-made backgrounds, but I added text stamping to two of them. The die cut "hellos" also came from my stash. The other two I decided to make specifically for Easter. Here's a closer look:

And now, a bonus special guest appearance by a lamb! 

I surprised myself by willingly making one more ATC with another of the critter dies, but I also now know that using coloured cardstock is considerably easier than colouring each. tiny. piece. :D The base was already dry-embossed, but I added some sparkly mica mist to colour it. The flower components were already die cut, too - and amazingly, coordinated with the spray. My lamb's little meadow? A leaf from a Catherine Pooler peach stamp set. :) 
ATCs with Heart/ATCs mit Herz has a Spring challenge, so I will join them with these! 
Artist trading cards or coins are so much fun to make - I hope you'll join us! 

Pin It Now!

These are adorable bunny ATCs, great backgrounds and love your staging eggs. The bonus ATC is also adorable and so well designed great use of the peach leaf and flower.

Tim Holtz critter dies?????
Well there's something else I need to add to my list!
But ya they look super fiddly - and I agree the coloured cardstock would be a time saver.
Also how freaking cute are those bunnies and that sheep (and those eggs!)
