Twisted Humor

I had been looking for a realistic chocolate bunny stamp for a long time, so I was very happy when I saw this Chocolate Bunny stamp in the current Occasions catalog by Stampin' Up! It was just what I was looking for.  Then it sat on my desk for a couple weeks patiently waiting to be inked.  I've known for a long time what I was going to do with it...that's why I was looking for it in the first place.   Well, it finally met it's ink, then it sat there for a few more days waiting to be made into a card.

Then Miss Boo announced the CAS54 challenge for this week - Wishing for Spring.  Spring makes me think of Easter, which makes me think of chocolate bunnies, which makes me think of biting their ears off!  Doesn't everyone start with the ears?  (Did you know there was a reason why everyone starts with the ears?  The way the bunnies are made and rotated when they are cooled, there is more chocolate at the tips of the ears than any other part of the bunny.  I'm not making this up - I saw it on "How It's Made".  I love that show!)

Anyhoo...It was time to make my twisted humor bunny card!  My bunny was thrilled to finally be made into something useful.  His friend didn't fare so well...

Don't they look like real chocolate bunnies?  They just need those yellow and blue eyes!  The second bunny was made using the mirror image stamp.  I used Versamark ink and clear EP.  The grass was sponged around the edges before I cut the blades into it.  I tore a sticky-note to use as a template for the clouds, and sponged them with Bashful Blue ink.  The eggs were colored with SU markers and cut out.  I used 1/4" and 1/8" punches for the thought circles and outlined them with black Sharpie.  The sentiment ovals were cut out with Nestabilities and popped up on dimensionals.  I used the 1/8" punch to take the bite out of the poor little bunny's ear.

Supplies used:
Stamps - Chocolate Bunny, Stampendous Mirror Image Stamp, Michael's $ stamp
Paper - GKD white, Choc. Chip, Green Galore
Ink - Versamark, Garden Green, Bashful Blue
Accessories - clear EP, heat tool, daubers, sticky-note, various SU markers, 1/4" and 1/8" punches, Nestabilities, black Sharpie, dimensionals

I hope you enjoyed my twisted humor today, 'cause that bunny is spittin' mad!
