Let’s get on with the card. 😉

Meet today’s card.

I used the new A Little Lovin set. The words, bunny, heart and small carrot are from the set. The large carrot is from the Vegtastic stamp set. I knew the minute I saw the bunny that I had to try to pair them together.

To make the teeth pop a little bit, I added a coat of Glossy Accents to them.

And for the cheeks? A few people have asked how make them so vibrant with chalk. Well, the secret is I don’t use chalk for them. I use Metallic rub-ons to do them. I use the Ruby color from Color Kit #1. I lightly tap my finger on the palette and then rub it lightly right onto the image I want to add cheeks to. Works like a charm.

That’s all for now. Be back again later.

Thanks for stopping by.
