Bunnyday Sunday

Hello.  Welcome.  It's very warm and occasionally sunny today.  My Lionhead rabbit has just had 5 little fat babies.  Happy Sunday everyone.  Despite challenges to the creativity caused by the arrival of an extremely annoying head cold a few days ago I have managed to get a project finished to join the PaperArtsy challenge.  Lots of creative awesomeness there again this week and I started playing with a few ideas til I realised focus and one finished would be helpful!


I really liked the box Sue made but decided to try some of the techniques on a card.  I started with a piece of kraft that had a stamp/postmark print on it.  I added some texture paste and stippled it.  



I painted my texture paste with a few shades of brown acrylic, used DI Walnut Stain through Memory Box Shine stencil and then added some Creative Expressions Vintage Golden Green gilding wax.  Now I have a problem because I really like this and everything I tried covers up that lovely background.  I like that the stamp print is still a bit visiable in the corner and I love the glow on the gilding wax.  Arrrggggggg.....


But I decided it had to have a little more.  A stamp from LPC003, stamped on kraft and fussy cut then backed with an embossed, crumpled and torn piece of crunchy wax paper.  Some birds, Sizzix Birds on a wire decorative strip, and some other tiny elements from various LPC stamps.  I also added a stamped tape border using an MME stamp and some more of the gilding wax to the bird die cut.  Still space for a sentiment.......

  2. It's so hard, isn't it, when you love a background, but I think you did a great job with your choice of images to complement it!

  4. I, too, love Sue's altered box, but, like you, I am going to start on a smaller scale first. Your card is really elegant, Gail, and I love all the layering! Yep! I can still see the stamp! ;-)

  8. Glad I'm not the only one who has a problem covering up backgrounds! Love the golden glow of this, and the choice of stamp and those wonderful birds really works, I think.
