Sugar Nellie - Bad Hare Day

Good morning everybody, I hope you are all enjoying the spring weather.

It's my turn this week to show you one of the stamps from the Sugar Nellie range over at Funkykits. So here's my DT card using this cutie digital stamp ‘Bad Hare Day’.  The originally plan was to repaint my new wooden heart shaped hanging thingy to showcase my stamp along with bits of paper, stamped images, flowers but I had a nightmare. I'm not really much good glue and tend to get it everywhere but where I want it...well I had the same nightmare with blue paint. I‘ve now come to realise up-cycling wooden objects might need a tad more practice and a lot more play time ---- and possibly better acrylic paints.  My hubbie just shakes his head. LOL
Aw well, I might give it another try for my next project - well maybe!!. 
Anyhoo, back to this week's DT card --- after doing a crafty detour I’ve created an 8 x 8 Easter card scene.  I like to use different mediums as you know, so this week I decided to use my Prisma Pencils  as they were gathering dust in their tin box - I did however use my Copics to add a base layer before using my pencils.

Here's What I Did
I attached some gorgeous glittery aqua coloured card onto my white base card and punches out 2 borders and added them to each side.  I used the same aqua coloured card as the background (sky) and base of the scene, From the same paper pad I cut out a few green hills in different directions and added distressing ink on the edges.  These were layered up onto the background (sky) card, and I placed a few of the glittered stickers from the pad around the scene and added my girl image.  I die cut the picket fence, bird table, bird and clouds and attached them to the card.  To finish off my scene I added a little glitter, the sentiment and some punched out flowers and butterflies around the image.
