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.

  2. You are right, now the bunny looks gentle and fun, love it. You are very talented Cindy, what a cute illustrated card that will be.

    Hmmm too bad no one around me is having babies...
