Design Team Make for "Love To Craft Challenge Blog" #31 using Lavinia Stamps
In the rabbit burrow
This little project has been in my mind for the past couple of days. I was thinking about how I could replicate looking into a rabbit burrow.
I started off by stamping the Lavinia Stamps "Midnight Meandering" rabbits and the "Creeping Vine" in Versafine "Black Onyx" ink. I coloured the ground the rabbits stand on with a Promarker pen and added touches of white to the tails and eyes of the rabbits using a white Signo Pen.
I then selected four nesting round dies and cut circles in three pieces of cardstock and finally the largest circle in a piece of Shenandoah "Natural Wonders" paper. On this piece of patterned paper, I stamped a hedgehog from the Lavinia Stamps "Walace Family". I then inked the edges and the lower section of the page with black ink.
Starting with the smallest aperture, I layered the cardstock with foam pads between each layer to add dimension. I did this in the hope it would provide depth. Finishing with the patterned paper on the top.
I die cut some foliage in black card (I have had the dies for some time and didn't retain the packaging, so I have no idea where they came from). I stuck the die cuts to either side of the aperture and then added a little shadow with a pen below the die cuts and the hedgehog.
I finally added a few Nuvo Sequins in "Prickly Pear and "Olive Green" colours to add a little sparkle to the lighter top of the picture. I then mounted the picture into a box frame.
