A new challenge starts today at the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog with the theme of "Warm and Fuzzy". I gotta say I had loads of ideas for this one, especially involving Christmas and kitties, but decided at the last minute to switch gears. I mean, who doesn't get a warm fuzzy feeling from a sweet little baby girl, especially when she's all sleepy eyed in jammies with her blankie? EEEEK! LOVE!
The adorable image is Sleepy Bunny Elf (also available HERE in the AW digi shop). Couldn't you just eat her up? I printed her several times on both white and pink card stock. Her skin is colored with Copics and I've fussy cut up a storm to add flocked layers to her bunny jammies and slippers. Gotta say, I love to flock ;D. Such an easy way to add texture to your project by running the piece upside down through your Xyron, pouring on the flock and rubbing it in, until you get the coverage you want. I generally use white on colored card stock which mutes the shade beautifully. More warm fuzzies with the pom pom bunny tail and the wispy white hair cut from marabou trim.
Here's the dimensional view. Love that she's sucking her thumb. (True confession: I did 'til the 4th grade, not in public mind you, just in bed at night, and my teeth turned out fine, without braces, thank you very much.) One thing about adding dimension here. Adhesive doesn't stick to flocked surfaces, at least for very long, so you might want to used liquid glue on your foam. I find Fabric Fusion works especially well.
I've added a heart doily behind her and more "warm fuzzies" in the form of a small piece of chenille fabric I've had in my stash forever.
Finally, I added one more "warm and fuzzy" detail in the form of some fuzzy rick rack. Hope you like and will come join our "Warm and Fuzzy" challenge at Aurora Wings.
P.S. Sleepy Bunny Elf makes and adorable Baby Boy project, too. Here's one I did earlier. So what makes YOU feel all "warm and fuzzy"?
Here's how to keep up with all that's happening at Aurora Wings.
