The Library Challenge - Chocolat

At The Library, the book is  Chocolat by Joanne Harris.
Image result for chocolat book
I read this book (published in 1999) when it was quite new and I loved it. But even if you haven't read it, there's loads of ideas on the cover. 

For my first card (at the top) I used a very old Magenta stamp, coloured with Promarkers and a touch of shimmer pen for a sugar glaze. The speckled background was made with a spray mist. 

I'd like to enter the chocolates card into:

I Love Promarkers  something square 

For my second card, I took inspiration from the eggs on the cover. The bunny stamp is an old magazine freebie, coloured with Promarkers and paper-pieced. The eggs were from a Heffy Doodle set. 

I'd like to enter the bunny card into:

I hope you'll join in the challenge at The Library.

What a cute image the bunny is. I really like the outside randomness of the stitching holes. Is this a die??

Thank you for sharing in our Easter Challenge.
