Herbert Hare in Watercolour

Morning and hope everyone is well--I was delighted to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for Fashionable Stamping-thank you for the invite Shirley-the challenge theme chosen by Carola is "Nature"-how easy is that so hope you can find the time to join in.I used a wooden stamp from Stampotique "Herbert Hare" coloured with watercolours and glossy accents on eyes,then doodled round the edges and added some little metal confetti hearts.The stamped sentiment is from a Holly Hobbie set.
The background was made using 3 distress inks through a Creative Expressions stencil-didn't quite get the overlapping perfect-but hey-it is handmade-so unique-right?

I love that image Carol and your 'off beat' background is a perfect match and, hey, if you had not told us, no one would have known that the background design was not intentional.
