Happy UnBirthday

 You don't want to know how many times I tried to get this right, lol, but I think I finally did.  At least it's what I saw in my head (we all know my head is not quite right though).  The fabulous vintage Rabbit is from Inka at Altered Artifacts.  I have been dying to use him.  The beautiful bg paper Pocket Watch is from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Steampunk Stamps set.  The King and Queen of Hearts are from Jolee's by You.  The pocket watch charm is from Blue Moon Madame Delphine's collection jewelery pieces.  The teapot ribbon was from JoAnns clearance bin, unmarked.  I used Tim Holtz distress inks in broken china blue, scattered straw and dusty concord.   I used leftover stencils from my Penny Duncan cd.  I also used a Versamark pen to carefully color in the Rabbit and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  The first time I went out of the lines a little and the bright green BG paper came through on just some of the edges.  I also used Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold and since the Rabbit had been embossed in clear, I could just wipe away any ink or mist that fell on him.  I also used a Spellbinders Fancy tag.  
I made this to fall into 2 challenges at Gingersnap Creations.  
The Chestnut Theme - Kings and Queens 
and the Spicy Supply - Charms.  
and  Altered Artifacts - Flaunt Friday
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  10. Oh, I love that bunny too. And I had to crack up at your "unbirthday" message. That's exactly what I need many, many unbirthdays.

  11. Love how you combined all of the fun elements in your design ... candy for the eyes for sure ... thanks for "charm"ing us at Gingersnap Creations.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a sweet comment, they really make my day!
