Some Bunny Loves You

Well I am ashamed to say that I hadn't heard of Tando Creative  until recently - what?...I know, it's awful to think that all this time I have been missing out on these fabulous products.
I was very lucky to win some Tando mini chipboard pieces from a challenge over at Out of a Hat Creations -  thank you to both for these.

So here at long last is my first project, a wooden box, using just a few  'Tando minis -Rabbits' and a butterfly from 'Tando minis - Butterflies'

I primed the wooden box with gesso first, then painted it with a 'Soft Green' all purpose acrylic paint from Do Crafts.

Then punched out a frame on white funfoam using a Spellbinders die for outside and a Marianne die for inside. Inked the frame using lettuce and aqua alcohol inks.

Used the Marianne die on card too to stamp the words using Dovecraft alphabet stamps and inked it with shabby shutters and tumbled glass distress stains. 

Stamps used were from 2 sets by Elusive Images called 'Autumn hedgerow' and 'Nature table' and stamped with Stazon.

Flowers coloured with coloured pencils then glitter glue added over top.
Butterfly and Rabbits coloured with distress stains and alcohol inks and glazed with Glossy accents. I used a piece of wire saved from a bottle of wine ( which was covered with it) and made it into an antennae for the butterfly.

Glittered small bits of flowers too.

Used Glossy accents over the recess where the words are.

Once again, many thanks again to Tando Creative and Out of a Hat Creations for the lovely prize, they were a real pleasure to use
and such good quality x

Thanks for stopping by....happy crafting xxx
