Paperbabe Stamps Challenge ~ #86 Animals/Pets

Happy Friday Creative Friends,

There's a new challenge theme over on the Paperbabe Blog  
with this fortnights theme being Animals/Pets. 

I couldn't resist using the White Rabbit templates for this challenge.
Traced onto a canvas sheet I stamped those Rabbit Face features and used the 
Cat template to give the shape of the body.. The Rabbit ears I traced separately.

Poppies are so relevant this time of year this napkin adhered 
to the Ornate Frame made the perfect backdrop.

It's hard work using pencil on canvas sheets, I lost count of the amount of times 
I had to sharpen those pencils.. but it gives an alternative effect to paints. 

A wash of blue helps create the skyline with left over poppies 
mounted onto card waiting patiently to be layered on top..

I cut a boarder around the Rabbit and ears so I could pull the canvas edge apart to 
create the appearance of fur tufts. Now to decide exactly where those ears will go..

With those Rabbit ears tweaked into position and wire whiskers glued into place, 
those left over poppies are layered up to complete this idyllic scene.

I do hope you can pop over and see what the Design Team have been up to. 

Come and share your Animal or Pet designs over on the Paperbabe Stamps Blog 
you may just be the Lucky winner of a Paperbabe prize.

Wishing you all a Peaceful weekend.
Creative Wishes
