Mad March Hare or a sweet Spring Bunny for Country View Crafts

Mad March Hare or a sweet Spring Bunny? 

This is my inspirational project for Country View Crafts March theme.

He who wanders is not lost

I found several Cottontails from the TH die that had been roughly scraped texture paste over them. Cottontail on the right is a plain die-cut, the one on the left is textured with some pencil details.
I chose the cottontail to use and with a graphite pencil I drew in some details of a hare/rabbit and then took Lost Shadow, Pumice Stone, Hickory Smoke, Black Soot and Scorched Timber distress watercolor pencils and coloured him in. These pencils are so versatile and I think bunny looks so much more realistic now.
I decided to make this hoppity into a collage panel so started to gather some pieces to work with - a background form my leftovers folder, Tim Holtz tissue paper, ephemera and entomology moth, stamped sentiment and 'Big Chat' word and spent time arranging them into a composition.
The composition changed a little as I firmed up how I wanted it to be.
And I fell in love with cottontail himself and his cute face.

There is a challenge every month on the Country View Crafts FaceBook page.

How can you tell that a rabbit is getting old? Look for the grey hares. 

What do you call a happy rabbit?    A Hop-timist

Why don’t rabbits get hot in the summer?  They have hare conditioning
