Birthday Bunny for a Birthday Boy

A precious little boy is turning 3 in a couple of days, and I needed a special card. Since I just received some new MFT stamps from my dear friend Frances (StampOwl),

{Thanks Hoots}

I thought it would be a perfect time to do their sketch challenge today. And when I saw that SCS's Ways To Use It challenge today was to use watercolor paper, I thought I'd watercolor this MFT bunny called Cupcake Flopsey!

He's stamped with Black Onyx Versafine onto 140 lb watercolor paper, embossed with Detail Black ep, cut out and mounted onto 110 lb Neenah Solar White paper. The dp is Wild Asparagus (MME), and the stars are cuttlebug diecuts.

I pierced the two side strips and sewed twine into place with scrappers floss, and ink distressed everything with Walnut Stain (Ranger distress Ink).

Finally, since this card is going to a little boy, I made a baseball cap for this cupcake delieverer. However, I couldn't stop myself from adding a touch of sparkle to the cupcake with Frosted Lace Stickles, cause the mom of this sweet little guy is a HUGE cupcake fan, and LOVES bling. What can I say...I love bling too. But notice...no ribbon.

To get the curl in the ribbon floss on the top left star, I just wound it around the needle part of my piercing tool.

That's it y'all!! Hope you're having an awesome day!! Tomorrow is FRIDAY!! Woo-Hoo!! And I get to go to two Gift shop open houses, taste gourmet food, and shop for Christmas gifts!! Can't wait!!

Happy Stamping!

Oh Tosh - I adore the sweet vintage feel of this DP coupled with your stitches and the soft glow this bunny exudes. You are the master and I am certainly far from worthy. Your art sweeps me away and flies me to the moon.
