Easter Bunny Basket

010139

The Fussy and Fancy Challenge this fortnight is Easter and I have chosen an Ethereal Forest Designs Easter Bunny image…been saving this image especially for this challenge.

The Charm Barn are sponsoring this challenge and all charms used have been donated by them.

Made an Easter basket…one side has the bunny image and the other has the beautiful charm bunny ….sooo cute.

Every time I moved the basket to take a photo an egg fell off…so….as you do… I ate it. Didn’t realise until I saw the photo of the side where the charm is that I had eaten all the eggs on that side… oops.

Long story time……when home in the UK Amber’s Easter egg was sitting in a little box and I realised I could take it apart and make a template of it. It was too big to fit on an A4 sheet so after quite some time…. and a few chosen words….Andrew and I made a new template….had just made the basket up with copy paper… just to make sure it worked OK… when in walked JP and Clare and what had they bought me the same Easter egg but in a smaller basket…again a few choice words were uttered.

Coloured bunny with USArt sparkling pearlescent pastels, added diamond glaze to the eggs and a pearl for his eye…..really lovely effect. His ears and tail are covered with flower soft which I then painted over.

Flowers are made with tissue paper and gives a soft and floaty look to the basket….have placed tiny little flower baubles in the middle of each. At one end of the basket there is a huge chiffon bow and at the other another tissue flower. The string of beads along the scalloped edge are stitched in place and also the lace trim beads at the bottom. Petals and white flowers from stash.
