Voodoo Bunny Valentine...

"Bugzz - Voodoo Bunny" provided by Lacy Sunshine Stamps

Love her!  Love the 'just a little odd' images that I find... matches my personality. And here I have a Valentine for a "don't give me a girly card" phobic man!

Aud Sentiments latest challenge is for a "Valentine or Love Sentiment"... this is my take on the theme.  You have till Feb 10 to get up to 5 entries into the mix for a great prize of 3 images of your choice from Lacy Sunshine.  The DT has some fabulous creations - do go check them out!

[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]

  • The 'mat' just beneath the focal image is DP wrapped around one of those thousands of "credit cards" you get in the mail labeled "your name here" - they are made of plastic or sometimes chip board.  I am obsessed - I save them for the day I figure out what to use them for. Finally!  The day came!  One down and 987 to go.  I kid.  Kinda. Top Tip: I do use the plastic ones for spreading glue or stencil paste.
  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to 3D her head. Printed 3 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the image. The layers are either glued or elevated with foam tape to achieve dimension.
  • The base panel was cut down to allow her legs and the part of the bunny to be cut free from the background so I could 'sit' her on the mat.
  • The sentiment was printed out and then punched with the oval - & slipped under the focal panel.
  • Candi was colored with Copics and put on three corners in the Ticket Stub punched shapes.
  • Five 1/8th inch holes were punched  along the bottom left and twine sewn thru and finished with a bow.
  • Inside uses left over DP from the front.
