Jenny Gropp - You are here!
I thought I'd change it up a bit for a Thanksgiving card... taking a break from all the turkeys and pumpkins! This little bunny couldn't be cuter! I'm always a fan of Gary Robertson's images... they just scream to colored with Copics! I should try and color the apples green sometime, but I always love that pop of vibrant red! 

 Here's the Copic assortment! I think a lot of people sometimes shy away from some of these images that have a lot of shading drawn in, but really they are more forgiving to color than an image with no shading. After coloring my image, I used the edge of my scissors to rough up the edges a little. Before I added it to my card front, I inked up the edges with a little Chestnut Roan to give it a little more of a rustic look.

On the inside I added the Happy Thanksgiving sentiment (love this font!) and an extra little wheat stalk die cut. Again, I used a Chestnut Roan Cats Eye to ink up the edges of my card stock. Finished card is an A2.
