Bunny tails

Hello to all! Aren't bunny tails the cutest little things? They were definitely the highlight to this layout as this stamp set by Raisin Boat is the absolute cutest!

For this layout, I had pictures of my daughters and my niece from Easter last year, and I wanted to do something special. Thank goodness SumMore Fun had the most awesome stamp sets and the best idea to make these cute little bunny tails!

I started in the top right corner by sponging a sunburst stencil with Distress Oxide Inks. 

Then, I added grass and flowers along the bottom of the page. Using the Raisin Boat Sweet Smile stamp made this so easy! I added some extra color to my flowers by using the amazing Kirarina Wink Glitter Markers. I also colored some of the blades of grass with the green marker as well. To make the grass pop even more, then I added green Liquid Applique. If you've never used this before, you're missing out! More detail about it coming up on the bunny tails.

For the second page, I found the cutest SVG for my title. I cut it out in coordinating cardstock, and then added some doodles with the matching Kirarina Markers.

For the coolest aspect of the layout, I went back to the liquid applique. I'm sure there are many uses for this awesome product, but where I used it most is to add fun dimensional elements to my cards and layouts. Think snow on a tree ... or BUNNY TAILS! 

I started by stamping my bunnies in a line across the layout using the Raisin Boat Stamp Spring is in the Air. I added the first bit of color by putting polka dots with the Kirarina Wink Glitter Markers

Then, I moved on to the tails! I actually had liquid applique in all of these colors. They are years old, clear back from when there was a local scrapbook store - amazingly, they were still good! If you can't find it in all the colors, you have options. Get the white from SumMore Fun, and add ink or re-inker to color it. Or, I've even heard of people having success by using it white, and then stamp the ink on top of it. Full disclosure: the directions say apply your liquid applique, then let it dry, then heat set it. I'm too impatient for that. I applied all my bunny tails, and then took my heat gun to it right away. As it warms it, it makes the liquid applique puff up and bubble like this did - perfect for bunny tails! I think it's supposed to be even more puffy if you let it dry, first; but honestly, I've never tried that! 

I drew some grass blades with my Kirarina green marker, and then added some more grass with the liquid applique.

I matted all my pictures in coordinating cardstock to finish off my cute layout!
