Bunny Wild Thing

Hiya! How are you today!? I'm pretty good! I am so happy that I got a chance to make this card! I have had this idea since I first got my "Bunny" Sweet November stamps! I know they are adorable Bunnies, but there was something about them that reminded me of Max from Where the Wild Things Are and so I had to do a little altering and combine them with my favorite Taylored Expressions set The Places You'll Go. I also used the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #100 for the layout!


So, to make Max I used Baby Bunnies Bunny and wiped away the sweet little Bunny with a baby wipe after inking up the stamp. I also wiped away most of the ears and the tips of the feet. I drew in very simple pointy ears and some claws on the end of the feet. I used the arm from Baby Bunnies Daffodil, wiping the ink off the hand and drawing in claws once it was stamped. I list my Copic colors below, but I wanted to point out that that my colors in the ocean scene were way too bright when I first finished so I tried to tone them down with a W0 and W1 marker. When that didn't tone it down enough I went over most of the picture with E43 I was pretty happy with that. I chose E43 because it was similar to the golden brown in the DP.

The Details:
Stamp: Baby Bunnies Bunny, Baby Bunnies Daffodil (Sweet November Stamps through All That Scraps) , The Places You'll Go (Taylored Expresssions)
Paper: Basic Grey, Chocolate Chip (SU), White (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Walnut Antique Distress Ink
Copics:
Max:R00,E00,E11,R20, E44,E47,E49,B91,W0
Trees and Grass: YG21,YG23,YG25 all w/E43 over them, E44,E47,R00,R02 both w/E43 over them
Sky and Water: B93, B95 w/W0 and W1 over them
Misc: Nestabilities Circles, Brads (Basic Grey), Foam Tape


Thanks so much for stopping by!
