Wild hare day

Nat is setting the challenge at Daring Cardmakers this week and she'd like to see animal prints or wild animals. I suspect she was thinking lions and tigers (oh, my!) but I've gone a bit closer to home. I've never seen a domesticated hare so it must be a wild animal, right?

This lino cut style hare is actually sold as a Christmas stamp (it has a festive sentiment along with it) but I figure it's really a year-round image, just switch out the sentiment.

I stamped in black on the card base then again in chocolate brown, cut out the hare and raised him just a bit on some gel glue. Some dots with a couple of Copic markers to fill in some sky and a stamped sentiment and call it done.

Stamps:
Start Gazer (Woodware)
Sentiment from Big Day today (Waltzingmouse Stamps, no longer with us)

Paper:
Bristol board

Ink:
Brilliance by Tsukineko (Graphite Black, Pearlescent Chocolate)

Othe:
Copic markers
Pinflair glue gel
Corner Chomper

Thanks for stopping by!

This is very reminiscent to me of when my cousin was into block printing many years ago. I stupidly gave back an owl she had done a long time ago. I should have framed it.

It is charming.

Oh I love that stamp, I just got it in the mail last week! Fussy cutting the hare for more dimension is a nice touch. Do like!

Lovely card Joanne, and it's great to see some British wildlife features. Your happy hare is fab!
