White Rabbit...

I was making "Happy Spring" cards and because we were still having rain, sleet, hail and intermittant snow, I made this card instead.  Lighting was not optimal... but I wanted to share my paper sculpting technique here.

This close up makes it a little easier to see. The image was colored, the body and head were cut out separately and turned face down on a pergamano pad.  I used a "ball and cup" tool ( used to emboss metal) - to gently rub in circle motions and emboss the image.  Any ball tool or even the back of a spoon used on a mouse pad or soft surface should work.  The body is mounted with double sided foam tape to ensure the roundness of the body shape is maintained.  Glue was applied only along the neck and shoulder edge to make it lie flat and provide a distinct elevation difference between the shoulders and the head.  The head was mounted on the same foam tape and overlaid above the shoulders and slightly overlapping the image.
