Shy Babies. Protective Mamas.


The three girls seemed as tiny as the baby rabbits they were about to discover nestled in the den underneath the tall grass at the edge of the lawn. They could only stand in awe as they viewed the bunnies on the day they finally found the den. Oh how the girls longed to hold and cuddle these tiny shy creatures- but they collectively remembered their father telling them to leave any wild baby alone, as the protective mama is always not far away...


I would like to invite you to participate in another sketch challenge with me, this time for TiffanyDoodles 7 on the 7th Challenge! I rotated rotated the sketch and kept it pretty simple by cutting out the Shy Bunny Digital Stamp after lightly coloring him.

  3. The bunny was printed and colored??? I never would have guess it wasn't cut out from a greeting card or picture. Craziness how real that looks.

    Excellent job, Karen! Love the bit of twine with the tag.
