Hey there crafters, today we are starting a new fortnightly challenge at Paperbabe Stamps, the this this time around is "Animals/Pets"
The theme can be used in any type of crafty project, be it a card, mixed media piece or maybe even a scrapbook layout.
I have put together a project to inspire you
Meet Mr Floppy Ear. How cute is he?
I decided to make a Mixed media decoupaged card using the White rabbit template, face stamps and a few stencils from my Paperbabe stash.
I started by creating some prints on my Gelli plate using the following High viscosity Pebo acrylic paints; Buff Titanium, Raw sienna, Yellow Ochre, Naphtolene Carmine and Iridescent gold. I used some tissue paper and stencils to help create patterns and texture to the print.
Once dry I drew around the templates for the White Rabbit on to the prints, deciding which print to use for which part of the rabbit and his clothing as I went. I then fussy cut them and added some Distress Ink (Vintage Photo) to the edge of all the cut pieces, this helped take away any stark white and kept with my vintage feel.
I assembled the Rabbit using foam tape to add layers and shadows, I love decoupage style projects. To finish the rabbit I stamped his face in brown ink and added a few pencil lines to his whiskers and eyebrows.
My card base was also a Gelli print using the Naphtolene carmine and iridescent gold along with the checkerboard stencil.
I am so pleased with how Mr Floppy Ear turned out, he's so cute and full of charm. Here are the links to the Paperbabe products I used
