Springing Easter Bunny

I have got my polychromos pencils out for this card after being inspired by a tutorial by Moni. I am a very impatient crafter, once I have seen a technique, I want to be able to achieve the same effect immediately and to the same high standard and I have been very disappointed in the past! However, I have realised that practice is the answer and that 'Rome wasn't built in a day'. Moni's tutorial was an eye-opener, the way that each area may have to be gone over several times to build up the colour intensity suddenly made sense, so a big thank you to Moni and all the other crafty bloggers out there who so generously share their talents and tips.
