Some Bunny wurves you!!

You know how some times you can have an image for some time, then inspiration hits you in the face and keeps you up all night?
Well that's what happened this time, and I haven't finished yet, as I suddenly have ideas for another project, so I'll post this one, then crack on with the next! So Scrapbook Stamp Society, thanks for keeping me up all night AGAIN!!!

WOW!! How did that happen? Normally it wont let me do photos side by side!!! Thing is wether they will still be side by side when it posts.......................?
This is another image by Morgan Fitzsimons You can get it Here Rabbit Valentine, Look I know its past Valentines day!! But as hubby only remembered late last night, and dashed out to the corner shop to buy me 2 bars of chocolate, then I think I am entitled to still consider it Valentines OK!!!! And anyway it could be a Get well soon card, or a well done card, or just an I love you card.
So I started with the image, and printed it out on super smooth paper, and coloured it with my ProMarkers. But I wanted it to be something of a surprise, so I stuck a strip of Acetate on the back, so that I could make it bounce when the card is opened, and the image released.
So now I needed backing papers and card...........into my favoured Graphics program I went AGAIN! MCS, Garden of Romance seemed apt, so I grabbed some backing paper, and an extra topper, and set to work chopping and trimming with the old guillotine, paper, mirri board, base card, until it was all just the right size. Then I started layering it all up, I started with the inside, always easiest to start inside the card when its a gatefold, that way you get the meet of the 2 front sections right, and the border/width right at the fold lines.
The Topper is quite plain, as I wanted the inside image to be the focal point of the card, but it was too plain, so I grabbed some white organza ribbon, coloured it with my Red Promarker, and made a rosette type bow for the front. The front topper over hangs the right hand side, so that you use the topper to open the card.
The end of the acetate is stuck to the back of the inside Mirri Board. so that the topper can bounce freely. A bit of glitter, and some Crystal Accent, and the card is finished.
Do pop to the Shop and grab this for your self. These arent just digi artists, these are published artists with a wealth of experience in their Art. Many of them have been shown in Galleries since the 1980's, wow does that sound a long time ago (worse, I remember the 70's!), but these artists are converting their work so that we card and scrapbookers can use the images as we see fit. You dont get that from many artists!! Guys if your reading this, can you get Boris on Board?

Right off to create see you all later, and thanks for popping by, and leaving comments, It really does mean alot to me, xxx
