Bunny with grapes for LOTV

Hello lovely peeps

 Here's my second LOTV Design Collective card for March

I've used another one of the returning favourite stamps, this one is Get Well Bunny. Poor thing, needs to drink up her carrot juice and get better.

I've coloured her in with Promarkers and Graph-It pens. I kept the bedding white because this card is going off to my cousin who is currently in hospital with pneumonia. Hope you're better soon hunny bun xx

I added Glossy Accents to the bottle and medicine for a bit of shine.

I've made my own background by stamping onto a plain-ish patterned paper (First Edition).
To make the bunches of grapes I first punched a small circle from foam - this was my stamp.
Next I spread some purple acrylic paint onto a piece of cut and dry foam with a palette knife - this was my ink pad.

I then stamped several circles together in a vaguely bunch-of-grapes-shape. The stem was painted in with green acrylic by just flicking my paintbrush upwards. I repeated this a few times to make a pattern.

To distress the edges a bit I stamped randomly around the outside with black Memento ink on a crackeglaze stamp (IndigoBlu)

I've finished off with flowers cut using Tim Holtz's tattered flower punch/strip die.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
