Penny Black Challenge

Now my intention had been to have this posted earlier in the day... but alas.... my OH has commandeered the computer for most of the day. Thankfully he has now left to go to the gym so I can get some peace & quiet as well as access to my trusty blog.
Recently I have taken a break from challenges but yesterday decided it was time to join in all the fun again so I opted to start with this weeks Penny Black who's theme is Easter.
That made my decision very simple as it had to be my bunny stamp.
I cut a piece of 12" x 12" down to 8" x 8" and then folded as required. Added some card candy to the flaps then made some letter tiles... these were coloured using TH distress inks with some letter rub ons attached, mounted using 3d foam.
My bunny image was stamped using Staz On & then coloured using Koi Water Colours. There are 3 layers to this... bottom image is full, 2nd layer has the bottom of the pot, some background flowers & a few leaves cut out & the top layer has been left with only the bunny, 2 flowers, 2 leaves & the very top rim of the pot in place. This was then put together using silicone and once dry was attached to the centre.
Can't help myself but I love this because of the cute little bunny.
Happy crafting
