A Hare Raising Time

Good Morning All!
So don't look too closely at this card. I'm really unhappy with it. Usually when this happens I find that I've used purple somewhere and so I'm unsure whether its the card or the color that makes me gag. In this case  I think its both. I loved the image but when it came to a layout (that you could SEE, since my image is so big) it became a nightmare. I toyed with the idea of starting over again but time ran away from me.
Anyway! They can't all be wonderful or you'll start hating me. LOL
This week's challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil  is: "Any Celebration or Holiday".
I took the "any" quite literally and made a "happy everything" card. 
Hmmmm....that ribbon really is ghastly.Why did I do that?
OK, stop looking at it! *slap*

My recipe:
Paper: from stash
Image: Mo Manning
Ribbon: from stash
Buttons:from stash (Yup, I'm really diggin out the barrel here)
Colors: Prismas

OK! So that's my offering today :-)
I'm sure I'll be back real soon with a post to cover this one up! Until then, happy crafting!

Well why shouldn't your beautifully coloured images have the main focus on your card. I for one am happy to hate you lol. A happy everything card is such a cute idea too. Hugs lin

Don´t hurry too much to cover this post up! I love your card! The image is adorable and I like the colors a lot - I love the colors of delicious berries... your card reminds me of blackberries somehow...
Have a nice day!

Well I love this card. Your coloring is so pretty on this Kraft. You are great at this type of look. I have never colored this image up and you have inspired me. :)

I think you're so funny. Most people would love to color as "badly" as you do. LOL. Your card is perfect, as usual. I'm sorry you don't like purple, as this is one of my favorite colors. Hugs, dj1952

You are too funny, Dorcas! We are our own worst critics!! I think your card is great and I love how you colored this image!

Dora said...

Awww I love this.. you should be happy with it, it's gorgeous and you've really inspired me to try colouring on this type of paper, love it xx

You coloring is amazing! I love how you have captured the reflection of the bunny on that tea pot; just FAB! I was so blinded by the beauty of your coloring that I didn't pay much attention to your card; but when reading your post had to go back and really study your card. I think we are our worst critics; you have done a great job on this card; I can never be disappointed.

Hugs;

I can't believe we are such good friends with the fact the you don't like purple! You must love coming over to my house with splashes of purple everywhere! Don't even get me started on the fact you don't like dark chocolate! LOL! I am not bashing you girlfriend, your card is great! Fantastic coloring as usual! The image has to be big to capture all the greatness. The bow is perfect! Love the ticket too!

Why are you so hard to yourself. I love this card. And I love the color purple. You used it in a great combination with green and yellow. And your coloring is amazing like always. Oké it is a big image but the layout fit so well with it.

Not a purple lover huh? LOL You're being to hard on yourself. The card is fine. I always love to see Mo's classic character images. They're always amazing and you did a fine job with this one. So stop beating yourself up. :-)

This is stunning, Im just loving the way you use the kraft card, the colouring is beautiful and of course you used a mos image just perfect xxxx

Iulia said...

You are definitely exaggerating, m'dear, this is one adorable card, amazingly colored as per usual and the colors are perfectly chosen, No idea why you don't like it, I guess it's lovely. Plus, I like that ribbon, I think it goes perfectly woith the image which is funny:)
So you'd have to get used to people hating you, cause it is in no way ghastly:)
Have a great weekend sweetie!
Hugs, Iulia
