Bunny Hug



Bunny Hugs! I saw this lovely vintage illustration and thought  it would look great over a fancy circle opening. I'm working with circles and sewing this time. I printed the image and added "Hugs" then I "overcolored" the image with colored pencils. The pencils helped bring out the shadows and brightened it up. It's cut out and applied with puff stickers.

The little circles are sewn on and folded for movement and shadow. My scalloped circle is from Spellbinders (lacey circles). The background is embossed with Cuttlebug polka dots. Edge rounder punch on four corners. My paper is White Granite from Fox River (commercial stock). And a little pink bow from S.A.S. Fabrics and is ten years old.




This is my second go at this card. The first one was too large to support an opening and wobbled about. I love how this one came out!

  3. So sweet! You won't believe this, but I have a baby quilt that the center is that image. I started hand quilting it for a grand daughter when she was a baby. Put it up and forgot about it. She's 14 now. lol! Oh my, guess I'll save it for the day she has a little girl.
    hugs,
    Jann

  5. This is wonderful - the image is precious and I love how you mounted it over a window. And the circles reminded me of Easter eggs lining the bottom. Hand-lettered sentiment too? Love it. Thanks for joining the fun at Simply Create Too!

    What a sweet card although sadly you have linked it to too many challenges, as we allow a max of 5 which may be combined at LIM!
    Thanks so much
