Thanks a *Bunch* ..

Another quality set of stamps from Rubber Dance Stamps this set Bonny Bunny is a real fun theme and one of two *New Sets Designed by Donna Gray.

I first stamped the larger carrot onto Shrink Plastic and coloured using alcohol markers, carefully cut around the images leaving an edge and punched a hole for a jump ring to be attached when shrunk.

This is the Carrot before and the Carrot after shrinking down in the oven.

I covered a Tag in a piece of mixed media scrap paper from my mini scraps journal and sanded the edges back.

Distressed around the edges using Rusty Hinge the smallest carrot stamp has been stamped onto the background and coloured using the same alcohol markers used to colour the shrink plastic ones. The Bunnies whiskers have been stamped around the tags edge to break up the design.

Jump rings are attached to the shrunken carrots and then fixed to a finding to create a pendant. A long chain is added to create an over the neck necklace.

The stamped words are by Craftwork cards although I did have to create the word bunch by masking and stamping letters from words in the set.

Attached to the tag by tying a ribbon through the top this would make a great gift for someone especially those Bunny lovers out there and I *Carrot believe that my Daughter has already put her claim on this one.. (sorry that was irresistible..!!)

I'd like to enter this in the Rubber Dance Rule of Three Challenge

Enjoy the rest of you week everyone.. and Thank you for stopping by.

Hugs Tracey xx

Brilliant tag Tracey, I love shrink plastic (when it behaves) it really is fun! Thanks so much for joining in with our challenge at Rubber Dance, and have a very hoppy week - you started the rabbit puns! xx

Inky and Quirky Designs said...

Ha ha you know how much I love this Tracey....might even steal the idea myself! Is there much difference between the clear and the white shrink plastic as yours looks far nicer than when I've tried it with the clear!!

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

Yes it can have a mind of it's own at times.. A pleasure to join in with the challenge Sue.. Hoppy Days ..!! xx

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

So glad you like it Donna, means a lot to me as they are your designs..By all means steal away, I call it creative share :)) I actually use Frosted as I find it gives a good tooth when you want to colour your stamped images. The clear has always slipped around for me unless i've sanded it first.. Have fun with it Donna and Thank you xx

Lynne Moncrieff said...

Bravo, your shrink plastic images are perfection! I have clear and it was such trouble, I laid it aside and it's gathered dust since!!!
There's something so adorable about those carrots - maybe it's the vegetarian in me :)

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

Thank you Lynne, Shrink plastic does have a mind of its own at times.
Those wee carrots are so delicious, that maybe why my Daughter is so drawn to them... she is vegetarian too :)) xx
