Bonnet Bunny

I picked up this adorable Penny Black stamp in a charity shop yesterday...she's called 'Bonnet Bunny'. I coloured her using watercolour pencils, and as it's quite a large image, just added a strip of patterned paper (from the 'Paper Hearts' pad by Crate Paper) - the sketch over at Sketch Saturday this week was perfect! The sentiment is from the 'Handwritten Borders' set by Simon Says Stamp (I only inked up the word part of the stamp). I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.
