Not March but April Hares

Good morning and happy Monday, welcome to April! We have a new challenge over at Country View Crafts which is Spring and/or Easter, and this time I've gone for an Easter card.

This is a bit of a white cat in a snowstorm picture lol. It's a Clarity stencil that I've gone through with Distress Inks and blending brushes. I've not used these brushes in years but I love the soft effect they give.

The hares are from a Tracy Easson Wonky Tonk set that I got for Christmas. I've inked it within a couple of months so that's a result for me.

I water coloured them very simply with Distress Ink and then stamped the sentiment. I tried masking it for the corners, but ended up just cutting it up. Much simpler lol.

I think the hares look lovely with the stencil, and as it's 7x7 it's perfect for an 8x8 card. I hope that you will join in with our challenge, and that I'll see you over at the Country View Crafts blog. 
Have a fabulous April, and thanks very much for looking x
