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.
