Just One Bunny

Just one bunny this time and this is for my youngest.  As per usual it ended up very different to how I'd envisaged it looking and I've noticed it fits into a few challenges so that's always a bonus.

I've taken inspiration for the layout from the Fusion sketch, just rotated it.  Also it fits into The Library challenge which is Watership Down and I used a bunny - a definite requirement for that challenge and the feathers represent Kehaar the gull, who after a broken wing took refuge at Watership Down.

Once again, I've used scraps of mopped up Distress Ink to cut the feathers and the frame.  The bottom feather has been topped with vellum that I've embossed to give a more muted effect.  I stamped the bunny from a Stampin Up set in vintage photo, then roughly pulled the colour out with water into the white parts.  Added a little hill to ground him and used a tiny stitched square die.  The sentiment is gold embossed, the button is gorgeous... it has little holes in it like its been eaten by woodworm, it hasn't but its so cute and I added a bit of string just for interest. 

A close up of the sweetest button ever and I'm pretty sure somewhere in my house someone has a shirt or a cardigan with a button missing because this was the only one I could find and I have been known to remove pretties from things!
