Hoppy Anna Mae
Well.. I guess it's a little late to wish you a Happy Easter! Sorry about that. I've been swamped getting the new release ready, making samples, and adding things to the OCL web site! Speaking of... all the Crafty Fluff, Sparkly Fluff, Crafty Sparkles and the new, AWESOME Crafty Clear Acrylic Blocks are all up on the site! I hope you had a great Easter. We had a very nice day. The rain waited until after the kids hunted for eggs, so it was perfect!
eP has these cool regtangular coasters that I ordered awhile back... and they were calling to me! I covered two of them, front and back with My Mind's Eye Designer paper. I used Zip Dry Glue to attach them (love that stuff!). Added some holes in the top with my Crop-a-dile, then used Stampin'Up! Large Eyelets in the holes. I then cut ribbon, and tied them in knots, shoved the left over end through the hole, then added these cool blossom button brads. The inside part is a simple box I cut and scored using Primatics Ice Pink cardstock. SUPER EASY. I covered with Zip Dry, then stuck on the fronts.
Of course the fun part about this project is the Sparkly Fluff I used on Anna Mae's ears, the bunny, and the Easter Grass in her basket. Of course there's a bunch of shine and and sparkle going on with help from my atyou Spica Pens too. All the coloring is done with Copic Markers, and her dress is paper pieced with the same cardstock from MME.
