Moon-gazing Hare

Hi! Here's a birthday card I just made for my a wonderful friend of mine. We've known each other since University, where she earned the affectionate nickname of 'Stroppy Moose'. Apart from being  a little bit on the stroppy side, she's all about hippie remedies, old pagan traditions, and the beauty of the outdoors. She is also a Mountain Rescue volunteer, helping to train the rescue dogs.

I've used an image of a moon-gazing hare because it is associated with growth, new beginnings and good fortune, and there's something magical about an animal bewitched by the moon!

I coloured the image with ink dusters, masking the moon. I added extra colour to the grasses with promarkers, and embellished with punched flowers.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Sparkles Monthly: "Animal Magic"

Cutie Pie: "Escape to the Country"

The Paper Shelter: "Make it Digital"

The Corrosive Challenge: "Spring"

Creative Inspirations: "Anything Goes"
