Rabbit with umbrella

When I bought the umbrella stamp set (all for love from a•muse studio), I knew I wanted to combine it with the the rabbit from a springtime day.  There is something about the rabbit's paws that makes me want to have him hold stuff.
I started with a bit of painted paper - I thought the brush strokes looked like rain.  The size is 3x5, which apparently is a normal swapping size.  It was a little large for my rabbit and umbrella, so I used so slivers of white to frame it in a bit.  Finally, my rabbit looked like he was floating in space, so I used  my copics to color a background and shadow for him.  Normal markers won't work on an acrylic painted surface, but alcohol markers will.

He is adorable. Looks like he is standing on a bit of an island while all around him is nothing but rain. Great background and the white stripe frame is perfect.
