Cymbals Bunny Just a Note...Tag, You're It Inspiration Challenge #49, CASometry Challenge 2~Make Five: Stage 3

Hello,

Two weeks have passed by and it's time (drum roll...) for

Inspiration Challenge #49, where my amazing (and so sweet and supportive) DT and I invite you to draw inspiration from Anja's gorgeous tag.  Butterfly (swoon!), embossing, inking, die cut leaves...what catches your eye (*everything*, right?)?

My card is a 'departure' from Anja's in some ways (no butterfly...I know! Crazy!), but I have drawn inspiration from several of her elements:

  • embossing, although mine is with a folder
  • colours - blues and greens
  • "splatter" -  hers are shimmery; mine are water-based AND I added a crystal at the top of the tag
  • a focal image - her butterfly, my cymbal-crashing bunny (I googled the name for the sound cymbals made and apparently, crash it is....who knew?)


I'm marching my little hare over to CASometry Challenge #2~Make Five: Stage 3. Two more to go to fulfill that challenge.

After you visit my wonderful team's creations - and hopefully spoil them with some sweet words of love - create a tag and join us!  Looking forward to seeing your Anja-inspired tag in the gallery!

Thank you for spending part of your day with me; your visit brings me immense joy!

Sweet image, Carol. I'm guessing some'bunny' loves him?

Oh, this little mouse is so very sweet. I melt each time I see you use one of these cute mice. Love the watery colors, and the musical texture background is perfect.

What a great way to showcase this cutie-patootie cymbal playing, beautifully colored bunny! How perfect is the muscial embossed background? I'd say totally perfect!

Took the day off work today to craft...went outside to play at 8:30am and didn't come back into the house until 9:30pm!

Love, how you gathered together the bunny from the band and the embossed background, Carol!

Petra Swart said...

Oh, I love your cute little guy matching along, and the beautiful bg scene you have given him, Carol!!!! The dry embossing is so perfect to go with your little guy and the sentiment!!!!! (cymbal-crashing ...would never have guessed that!!!!)
Have a great weekend!!!

Carol, be still my heart! I LOVE what you did with that darling little marching bunny! I have this set because I fell in love with it, but now I know how to use it without having to have an entire band marching across my card!

Marybeth said...

And..... a cute departure it is! I love this little guy Carol! That embossed background is also gorgeous and perfect match!

Susanne Vargas said...

Super-sweet take on Anja's tag card! Love it!

Jeanne said...

Gosh those bunnies just make me smile. Your choices are spot on to make this wonderful tag/card. The embossing is perfect for the theme. Your coloring looks amazing and I really like how you added the little bit of yellow at the top of the hill and the bit of purple in the sky. Subtle touches that add so much! Thanks so much for sharing. I can hear the crashing cymbals from here and I'm smiling big time. :)

Anita in France said...

What an adorable little bunny, Carol ... you've set him marching across such a sweet scene ... so cute! Hugs, Anita :)

Shelly said...

Aww...Too cute!!

Rose said...

Love your sweet little scene Carol! The colours in the sponged background are lovely & your marching bunny is too cute!

Taunya Butler said...

I am certainly CRUSHing all over this fun and sweet card - the embossed background is totally awesome (I want it), and the coloring and soft color on your card is just so perfect!! SO wonderfully done and I totally see your interpretation of her tag!! Have a fun week!! Sending you hugs!!

Cornelia (fun stamping) said...

Super cute and utterly adorable!

Bobby said...

I knew it was 'crashing' as I used to play cymbals in the high school marching band, when I wasn't playing the snare drum. ;) Anyway, Carol, I can't believe you had the chance to make a butterfly tag and you didn't. But that bunny is awfully cute and perfect with the embossed music.

Anja Curvers said...

This is such a great and funny and beautiful take on my tag love it.

Kim Heggins said...

Too darn cute...just love your sweet musician bunny.

Greta said...

Gorgeous inspiration & your card is so sweet, Carol!

Stephanie Lanzalotto said...

I love seeing all the ways you have used these adorable little MFT band members. This is no exception. Love your beautiful inky background, and the musical notes embossed on your card base. Just wonderful!

Kim S said...

I love how you were inspired but then changed it up to a cute little image, yet it's still clean and sweet, just like the original.
