LOTV sneak peek: Spring bunny

Hello lovely people,

I am delighted that we have hit that time of the year when it really obviously starts to get lighter in the mornings and evenings and Spring will soon be here...I've spotted some snowdrops!

Today I am excited to share a DT sneak peek of the next release from LOTV, which will be on 28th February so I hope you are feeling patient - lol!

This is one of the Easter trio and I immediately knew I wanted to make a pop up design using some of my favourite Spring papers, although I've never actually used the yellow ones before!  It's just not a colour I tend to gravitate towards but it's perfect for a fresh Spring feel with this image.

I've used the digi image here and printed it at about 5cm diameter, which is a little bigger than the rubber stamp version of the trio images would usually be.  This is a great size for quick and easy colouring but still makes a great focal point.

I often don't like to add paper flowers when the image already has flowers but it seemed to work on this occasion, and I think choosing quite small flowers all in white helps to stop them clashing with the daffodils in the image.

Your twisted easel card is fabulous Kat.. very effective and a lovely way to show your beautifully coloured image at it's best. I love how you used the different diecuts to frame the image too. Like you, yellow is a colour I tend to avoid... but you've really made it work well here.

We have snowdrops in our garden too.. it's lovely to see the signs of spring being just around the corner!
