...MOJO65 : Some Bunny Loves You

This is my submission for Julee Tilman's MojoMonday Week 65 Sketch. I started with an Old Olive Cardstock base, then added a panel of Whisper White Cardstock and a piece of Maine Blueberry Designer Series Paper. The edges were pierced using a Paper Piercer and Mat Pack, then ten White Brads were added down two sides of the panel before it was attached to the base using Dimensionals. The focal panel consisted of Whisper White Cardstock and Old Olive Cardstock that were cut out using Spellbinder's Classic Rectangle Nestabilities. The edges of the white paper were pierced, then I created some grass using an Aquapainter and Old Olive Classic Ink. A piece of 5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon was tied around the top of the panel. The adorable bunny rabbit was from Verve Visual's set "Some Bunny", and it was stamped on Watercolor Paper in VersaMark Ink. I embossed him with Black Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun, then colored him using an Aquapainter and the following: Close To Cocoa Classic Ink and Cameo Coral Classic Ink. I stamped him again on a scrap piece of white paper in Not Quite Navy Classic Ink, cut out the shirt only, then attached it with SNAIL Adhesive over the embossed image. The completed bunny was cut out and attached to the focal panel with Dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped in Jet Black Staz-On Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock, then punched out using the Small Oval Punch. I added some hand-drawn hearts in the background with my Cameo Coral Stampin' Write Marker. The Large Oval Punch was used to punch out the larger Old Olive Cardstock oval. I added some piercing around the olive oval, then attached the sentiment panel to the base with Dimensionals.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by again today, and I will see you all again tomorrow. I will be spending the rest of the day cleaning floors, washing/drying laundry, and making projects for customers who have missed clubs this, fun, fun! Until later...
