- 5.5" x 4.25" tent style card blank, cut from 'Syntegro White Linen Silkweave' textured card
- assorted sizes of snippets of the same white card for the image panel and all the little die cuts
- cut the following die cuts: the flowery border/grass strip using the Charlie & Paulchen die called 'Flower and grass border', unbranded sitting bunny, window opening panes by The Greetery called 'Fresh Air Window Frame' and finally, all from Gummiapan, a nest and a couple of chicks from the 'rooster, hen and chickens' set plus three eggs from the 'Easter Branches' set
- once again lots of little die cuts to colour in using Distress Oxide ink pads and a water brush
- then used a large ball ended embossing tool to slightly round/shape the bunny, nest, eggs and chicks to add some dimension
- rubbed some Ranger 'Micro Distress Glaze' onto each of the 'rounded' pieces
- the image panel was trimmed to 5" x 3.75"
- then die cut the window into the image panel using a die from The Greetery 'Fresh Air Window Frame' set and backed it with a snippet of yellow patterned paper (the camera is telling fibs and showing it as almost green!)
- stuck the flower & grass border onto the front panel using red line tape across the bottom section and a glue pen for the blades of grass
- used a die from The Greetery's 'Brick Layer' set of dies to cut a stencil from 125 microns Mylar and stenciled the brick pattern in one corner of the window, using a mix of Distress Oxide inks on my glass mat, all mixed up with a squirt of water
- glued the arched open windows in place using a glue pen
- built up the rest of the little scene using some teensy pieces of thin foam pad behind the nest, chicks and bunny. The eggs had already been stuck to the back of the nest using red line tape prior to me touching the Micro Distress Glaze BTW
- adhered the front panel onto the card front, using strips of narrow foam tape to raise it up a bit
- finally, using a pencil, I added the eye and little nose to the bunny's face
Didn't add a sentiment this time, it would have knocked the layout to pot.
I'd like to enter this into Darnell's NBUS Challenge #49 - the floral grassy border, nest and eggs, window and shutters plus the 'brick work' stencil were all having their first outing.
