Zendoodled Bunny by Donna Gray

Hi everyone,

It's Donna here today and I have long admired the absolute stunning artwork by my fab teamie Melina, especially her Zendoodled creations so I got to thinking if I could do that too. As I was thinking this the Bonny Bunny stamp set caught my eye and got me thinking....what if.....







The Bonny Bunny stamp is ideal to try as it's quite an 'open' stamp so plenty of room to practice your doodling on. I stamped with black Archival ink on some thick card.




I used a black fine liner pen for this, make sure the nib is as fine as you can get although you can doodle with varying nibs but for the finer stuff this is more controllable I found.





So here I started the doodling, I had no plan in my mind, just doodled whatever patterns came into my head.





Some more doodling....such fun!!




You can see how the empty spaces are getting nicely filled up now.





Nearly finished, just a few more doodles to do now.....




Once I was satisfied that I was finished I then fussy cut the bunny out.





I needed a background for the bunny so I used an MDF Round which I painted with my favourite shade of blue paint.




I wanted a really subtle background so I decided on using the Old Book Page stamp but using a Distress Oxide to ink it up with.





Here you can see it's added interest to the background but doesn't stand out too much as I wanted the bunny to be the star.





Time for some more doodling, I always love the combination of orange and blue.







I popped bunny on the background with some foam pads and then added a sentiment from the Carved Fox and Owl set but I decided to cover the last line of the sentiment with a Tim Holtz Clippings sticker just for fun.

I really hope you enjoyed looking at my attempt at some Zendoodling. I have a long way to go to get to Melina's standard but it was really fun to do and a great way to do something a little different with your wonderful stamps from Rubber Dance ;)
