March Hares.

This is my March Calendar page for the challenge over at The Craft Barn. This month you must use the colour green somewhere on your page and flowers which can be stamps, dies, drawings, doodling images,embellishments etc so quite a choice. March to me makes Hares spring to mind so having looked through my stamps I found this cute rabbit which for the purposes of my page has now turned into a Hare.!!
I stamped him hopping randomly (as Hares do) around the page using distressed ink 'Forest Moss' and to make the buttons for the days of the week which are adhered with sticky pads so they stand out.
The flowers were made using the three smallest sizes of a scallop nestie from plain cardstock, colouring with watercolour pencils, spritzing with water and scrunching up. Once dry they were layered up and drizzled with Glossy Accents. Leaves were made from a leaf stamp again coloured with the pencils and sprizted so they curled slightly as they dried. Blanking days are little flower brads.


Off to make the next month now which can't be anything else but 'April Showers'!!
