Vintage Easter Bunny

 I wanted something Shabby Chic for this image and I think I'm getting better at it.   I used a couple of new products that my sweet Johnny Luv purchased for me at the scrapbook convention.  He bought the shapeabilities butterflies for me and those sweet little button blingy things that had no manufacturer listed.  I'm out of those now.  I have used them all on my Easter cards.    I also used a new La Blanche stamp.  They are made of silicon.  These stamps feel very different when you stamp with them, but let me tell you, I'm totally sold on them and will be adding quite a few to my stamp collection.  They are easy to use and the detail is fabulous.

     After I stamped the image and colored it with my fav Prisma pencils and oms, I cut it out using the egg shaped nestabilities and then clear embossed the entire image several times.  I wanted to do a broken glass technique but my embossing powder is just not thick enough.  I did distress the image with vintage photo distress ink afterwards.

    I used three different types of paper lace from the dollar store as well as two different Martha Stewart border punches.  Don't you just love the bunnies in the grass?  The egg embellishments are just cut from scraps of a Karen Foster design paper that I was using for a different Easter card that I will post tomorrow. The eggs were mounted on chipboard and then popped with foam tape.  I added a bit of stickles here and there and called it finished.
