Penny Black Challenge - New Beginnings

Afternoon all!  Hope you are well.  Now, here's a question for you - when does afternoon become evening, and when does evening become night?  Often wondered that .....

Anyhoo, a little challenge card for you this afternoon and it is for PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE who are looking for New Beginnings.  I've gone with an engagement card.

Aren't these Daisy Bunnies the sweetest?  Stamped in Memento ink and watercolour painted with distress inks.  I used the same colours on both bunnies but one is watered down more to give the lighter look for the one I think is the girl bunny.  Had a bit of trouble with my flowerpots as the ink was drying too fast and I had to really get the brush wet, which of course had an interesting "soggy" effect on the Bristol Board.  Backing papers are from a Laura Ashley collection that I've had a while but never even opened (oh the shame) and the cardstock for matting is Coordinations.  Sentiment is one of the fabulous circulars from Lili Of The Valley.

Here's a bunny close-up:

Thanks for popping over to see me.  I'm now off to have a prowl round blogland to see what all you lovely crafters have been up to when I've not been watching.

Hugs, Sxx

Don't know the answer to your question but I love this card!
The bunnies are so cute and I think your colouring is superb. I was admiring the shading of the plant pots before I'd read your post!
