3rd Place, Professional Non-Original Without Instruction

These handpainted bunnies by Brenda Stofft caught my eye because they were so cute. The green hills were worked in different stitches and shades from dark to light. The trees are in Diamond Ray. The basket was a challenge to be able to show the change in colors. I made up the open pattern and used a Herringbone variation for the rim. The ground is skip tent so that the subtle change in the paint colors of the canvas can be seen.
