Bunnies and Butterflies Card (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #44)

Hi everyone :-D 

My second post today...

Today a new Aloha Friday Challenge starts at Kitty Bee Designs.
http://kittybeedesigns.blogspot.com/

New challenge for this fortnight is #44 - Easter.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Dilly Beans Digi Stamps, with an awesome prize for our random winner: 3 digital images.

For this challenge I made this Bunnies and Butterflies Card, using our sponsor's beautiful image 'Aidynn's Bunny Framed' .


First I printed the image on a white paper (160 grams) and colored it with colored pencils.

When I color with colored pencils, I mostly blend colors using only pencils or using white pencil, but this time I tried something different. I blended colors with baby oil. I saw that in a video Colored Pencil Blending Methods by Dina Kowal a while ago. I am satisfied with the results.

While blending with baby oil, I smeared the image's background, so I decided to paper piece the image. I fussy cut the colored image, colored edges with black permanent pen, printed another image on pink paper (120 grams) and glued fussy cut piece over it. I didn't take photos of these.

I printed large polka dots digital paper and small polka dots black and white digital paper on the pink paper. I found those free digital papers a while ago, but, unfortunately, I can't find where.

After I put all pieces of the card together, I added gloss resin gel on some parts of the image and covered butterflies with it, to create glossy accents. This is a new product I bought few days ago and it makes the same effect like a transparent glossy varnish that I used in my previous projects. Glossy effect is great and a 100 ml bottle didn't cost a lot. It was on sale, so it was great opportunity to grab something new and try it. I am very satisfied!

Card dimensions are 89 mm x 132 mm (3 1/2" x 5 1/4").
