Lili of the Valley, the June sponsor of 2 Crafty Critter Crazies, has so many adorable images that you can develop decision fatigue trying not to buy the whole store! Imagine my dilemma trying to pick *just one* to feature for today’s post!!! This sweet little set of 2 images aptly called 2 Little Bunnies was super fun to watercolor with my Tombow markers. (Side note: I just ordered more Tombow markers to complete my collection from Marker Universe during their Memorial Day sale. I can’t wait to get them!!! I totally have Full Set Syndrome, and it was a no brainer to get the remaining colors based on how frequently I use them to color.) Where was I? Oh yes, if you have followed me for any length of time, you know I am slowly plugging away at using up my 6×6 patterned paper in my stash. This card is no exception, however when I printed the digi out large enough to color up all the little details it left room for only 1 patterned paper. The stitched rounded rectangle die is from Pink & Main and the sentiment is from the Jane’s Doodles Cactus set. Here is a closeup:
The challenge at 2CCC is always Anything Critters Goes, so head over and share with us the next animal card you create! Bugs and birds count too! And images can be cute, realistic, silhouette, or anywhere in between! I’d love also if you would pop over to 2CCC to see what the rest of the DT made this month with their choice of LOTV images!

Aww, how precious, my friend. Such a fun image and I’m so impressed with your water coloring! WOW! I’ve been practicing on water coloring recently but none of mine look like this. I’ll just have to keep trying, I guess. 😀 Hugs
Oh Connie, I still have far to go in my watercolor journey! I do find that I am better using markers, then a barely damp paintbrush rather than watercolor paints in tubes or pans. Takes practice to get the right pigment to water ratio whereas the markers just soften and get watercolor-y when wet without all the guesswork. Its hard enough staying in the lines with my shaky hands! No need to make it more of a challenge! LOL
OMGoodness! This is too cute! I’m in love!!! 🙂
Aw, thank you! I’m in love with my sweet Squirrel Girls for leaving me some love!!!
I love those darling bunnies! Great card! Thanks for joining our Anything Goes Challenge at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends. I hope join us again real soon!

Oh Darlene, me too!!! Several lifetimes, in fact. But how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time! Or in this case, one sheet at a time. Lol. Though I did a series not long ago about killing a paper pad in one go, and it was fun. Check it out on my blog!
