* Vera Lane Studio: Bunny and Fox


Today I'm sharing a cute notecard I made using Vera Lane Studio's Bunny and Fox digi set.

I adore these two whimsical characters and I've always had a thing for dressed animals (not so much in real life though!). 
Fox and Bunny were coloured with Copics and fussy cut. I made a simple background by adding Distress Oxides to an acrylic stamping block, lightly spritzing with water then using it as a stamp. I love the compact edges you get from block stamping and the white border.  Once the ink was dry I stamped some bare tree branches in one corner, first in Vintage Photo and then offset slightly in black to give the illusion of depth. I popped a little bird on one of the branches. The stamp set is from one of my favourite, local manufacturers here in the UK - Inkilicious
Some torn striped wash tape grounds Fox and Bunny and they are popped on foam pads for dimension. The sentiment 'Hello' is from the Hello Spring digi set (not available in the shop right now, but available on request).

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
