This challenge has come along at exactly the right time for me.
I am hosting an Easter Bunny Swap over at UKScrappers. You have to buy craft stash for the person you are the Easter bunny for, stash shop for them checking their likes and dislikes lists, and then send them their goodie in time for Easter. I finished my stash shopping on Friday and had decided to send their goodies in a personalised bag. So when I read on The doodle Dragon Blog that the challenge was to make anything but a card using an Easter theme, I nearly danced for joy.
Here is my Easter Bunny bag :
And here is a close-up of a very grumpy looking Easter bunny :
This was no quick make, it probably took me around 3 hours!!
So how did I do it??
Well first off you have to order from your local take-away so you can get a nice brown paper bag, hey the things we do for our art!!
I then measured the bag and opened up a page in adobe elements the exact size of the bag. I then played around with various images until I had created the scene I was happy with.
I used the fence, the Easter signpost and Grumpy Bunny. The Easter images are from the February membership. I printed out the fences and signpost separately to the grumpy bunny. I then coloured the fence, and signpost with my copics, highlighted the signpost with white gel pen, coloured parts of the Easter eggs with metallic pens and then used bundled sage distress ink to do the grass.
I then coloured my grumpy bunny with copics, used caroles white fluff (it's like white flower soft) then cut around the bunny and the scene with my craft knife.
Next I cut a piece of blue paper the size of my bag and distressed around the edges with faded jeans distress ink. I then cut a cloud shape out, split it in two and glued then onto my sky.
The sky and scene were then stuck flat onto the bag and finally my grumpy bunny was stuck on the front using foam pads to pop him from the background.
I love how this bag has turned out and in all honesty I don't know if I can give it away.
If you like my bag then you'd best nip over to The doodle Dragon Store and grab some digi's,
