I kept the design out of the center of the card…the rabbit is about in the middle but her scene is off-center both horizontally and vertically. The bow helps pull the eye that direction too, and all that white space provides rest for the eyes.
Colors used….all Polychromos:
I used the same pencils on the inside, but left the mouse more brown in the fur, and used the purple for the dress and yellow instead for the flowers. Writing a sweet little “thanks for being a patron!” note right beside her will be perfect!
