I've been working with a bunny...
... not a real bunny but a cute illustration of one I found on an old piece of stationery.
Originally, the bunny looked a bit angry...
Or maybe "deranged" is a better word?
Regardless, the bunny looked a bit too scary for a baby shower invitation. Don't want to send shivers down the spines of the invitees now do we?
Using Photoshop, I doctored the bunny's eyes and got rid of the shadowy furrowed brow. The original print's registration was significantly off, so I fixed up those oopsies to make it nice and clean. Then I paired it with an old Victorian pattern I found in one of my Dover books of copyright free patterns to make the invitation background.
I like the subtle colors and the nostalgic feel to the finished design. And I like that the bunny is more like a "Harvey" bunny and less like a "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" bunny.
