My favorite watercolor image so far--Day 2 no copics!!!

I have really been having fun rekindling my love of other coloring techniques besides copic markers.  Oh, don't get me wrong I will be using my copics again in a day or two but for a few days and more regularly from now on I am enjoying all the techniques I love so much!  Here is Late, the recently offered freebie from Mo's Digital Pencil PaperCraftPlanet group for reaching another astounding milestone 1200 members!!!

The watercoloring was done with SU watercolor crayons.  I thought a vintage rabbit would look good with a faded brown shirt and green vest.  I like the way the colors look on the white rabbit.  The rabbit was watercolored only in the areas that would be shaded with greys and light blue. 
Three colors of pink were used for the ears and nose.
Since I wanted to make the rabbit image the center of attention of the card I left the background mostly white to contrast the darker dp that I wanted to use. 
I just loved this BoBunny dp that I picked up at the LSS .  I cut it on the diagonal which I topped with a length of heart shaped lace ribbon.
Flowers were punched from the BoBunny dp and  smaller flower was punched from a brown and green polka dot dp that coordinates with the brown/green striped dp.
The sentiment in the lower left corner says it all " So Sorry"  for being Late...
Don't you just love this awesome rabbit image.  Oh the possibilities!!!

Well, it is late, gotta get to bed.
Thanks for stopping by

Happy Coloring
