Tender Toile

Here's a design just for fun! It's to go along with the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen March Theme: All Creatures Great and Small.

I love this retired bunny image from Stampin' Up (Tender Toile). It's one of those images that I will never part with! I stamped it onto PaperTrey Ink's Rustic Cream Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with Copic markers.

Spellbinder Petite Oval Dies (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) were used to create the image panel and border.


You've heard me sing the praises of K & Company's "ancestery.com" decorator paper (Michaels)...there is not one pattern that I do not love in that collection! I've layered it here with some of the PTI Rustic Cream cardstock...look at how great the cream distresses! The paper is so luscious and thick, it really gives an amazing distressed edge!

Gorgeous striped, crochet, and quarter inch ivory silk May Arts ribbons (all available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) along with a hanging charm purchased from Michaels, add the final touches to this muted design.
Hope you like it!

Hi Debi~

THis is a beautiful and wonderful page. I think it would look great in a book...part of a children's story. I love the papers you have used, and the coloring is just perfect.

Thanks for sharing!

Oh What a Darling image...I can see why you do not want to part with it...some stamps are just that way! Very muted and vintage, which is one of my all time favorite techniques..You did this bunny proud!!!
