Mr Hare

I have at long last used the other animal stamp I had at Christmas.
I am introducing you to Mr Hare.

I used an 8 x 8 inch journal 
the background shading started off with oxide inks and I did leave a space where I knew I was going to stamp the image.  
The trusted water colour paints and pencils were used to colour  him in.

Next   came the stencils, again oxide inks were used  for colouring.

On the left are three photos of these stages, including the word stamp that came in the set.As I was colouring this I  was reminded of the story of Alice and the  rabbit that was always late So I did add a few extras in the digital program I use [notes in my sidebar].

 However I am happy with my original version with the empty space [bottom left] and that is how Mr Hare will remain in my journal.

I will be joining the folk over at

and Rike's theme of ....Animals from A to Z

Thank you for stopping by to see me. your visit is always appreciated.


  1. Love your hare, he looks so steadfast and serious. I like both versions, top and bottom left, equally.

  2. A super hare stamp,and you have coloured it beautifully. I love the stenciled meadow flowers as well.

  3. What a great Hare stamp, perfect image with Easter on the horizon. I love your stencilled additions, it looks like he's peeping at us all through the wildflowers. Beautiful Spring time journal page. Thank you for sharing.
    Warm wishes Tracey xx

  4. I think you and Chris are on the same wavelength. Your adorable Hare stamp is more realistic, though. This is a fabulous entry and I also adore how you stenciled around him/her. Thanks for sharing this beauty with us at Art Journal Journey.

  5. Magnificent stamp Yvonne I absoloutely loving this.xx [aNNie]

  6. Beautiful hare journal page, that's a wonderful stamp. Have a great weekend, hugs, Valerie

  7. Fabulous - love that hare - who makes that stamp please?
    I do like how you have built up the page into a picture but that could equally be a stunning card for someone.
    Hugs, Neet xx

  8. I am in love with your handmade page - it's so well balanced and beautiful, but also your digital additions look so good! A great image - I have a colourful hare painted - will show it in a few days and I had a lot of fun creating this page as well. I thank you once more for such a beautiful entry linked to the animal collection at AJJ! Thank you dear Yvonne and happy start of the weekend to you!

  11. Mr. Hare is wonderful and I love the flowers and grasses that you created using the stencils and Distress Oxides - beautiful 😁. It reminds me of the hares we saw at Glasson Dock last year in spring time 😁. Thanks for the memories and wishing you a very Happy Friday and Weekend! J 😊
