Magic March Hares

With apologies to my teamies for being a day late, here is my card for the new challenge in The Male Room. The theme is magic or fantasy, and I did find this hard, particularly with a masculine slant.
Fairies are not really any good, I don't have any fantasy creatures or castles but I did think of something which I hope fits the bill. In past times in Britain I think hates were thought of as magical creatures. March is of course the time they seem to been seen most, "boxing' in the twilight. Here is my take on that, with no small thanks to a friend of mine, the queen of brayering, who made this image in much more detail and with much more skill than my offering as a picture.

I started by brayering the background in Indigo Island. Then I spritzed this while the ink was still a bit wet to get a starry night sky effect.
I die cut a large circle from matt silver card and carefully stamped the hares onto the edge.

They looked a bit as if they were floating in the sky so I grounded them with some grass stamped in the blue ink.I used a black layer and a long tall card blank. Card made in less than 10 minutes, time spent thinking about it 10 days!

 Below is a close up of the starry sky, complete with tiny touched of Sparkles liquid glitter. The stamps I have used are both magazine freebies.

No sentiment on this one. I will stamp something appropriate inside when I send it, as I think it would be good for a few different occasions.


  1. I love this Louise! Those mad March hares silhouetted against that full moon and sparkly sky - absolutely magical!

  2. Love it and I know just what you mean about the ten days thinking! Add another couple to find the stash I know I have somewhere safe.

  3. Hares are my favourite and I love this card - It would be framed and hung on a wall in my house!

  4. Sorry to be so late commenting! I think your mad March hares are awesome - they look absolutely magical against the full moon and starry sky. You rocked the challenge. Hugs, Deborah x

  5. Like me, you were thinking outside the box with the theme. Didn't know that about hares. Very cool!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
