Sugar Nellie Blog hop - Meet Duda Daze Bunny!



Hello and I can't tell you how excited I am to be able to post this on my blog. The new Duda Daze stamps ,from Sugar Nellie ,available from Funkykits are being showcased by some talented bloggers who love Sugar Nellie. These stamps have been designed by Diane Duda a very talented artist from the states.
I got sent this stamp which is called "Bunny". Isn't it wonderful! Remember this is the first time that these stamps have been seen so make sure you visit all the blogs in the blog hop so you do not miss out on the wonderful designs.
You should of arrived here from Vanja's blog. Please visit her if you have not already. For full details of the blog hop pop over to the sugar Sugar Nellie blog where you can find the full list of blogs to visit.
I decided to make a card using techniques that I enjoy and some that I have not tried before. I stamped the stamp onto card stock and coloured with promarkers. I then paperpieced her dress onto the image. I love paperpiecing. I then cut out the rabbit from another stamped image and pieced it on top. I used water colour pencils to create my shadow and the background. I then distressed the edges with a nail file and added acrylic paint to stiffen them, you should use gesso but I did not have any to hand. I then inked the edges of the paper with an ink pad (copper), I did the same with each of the layers. I then stitched them all together. I added some pearls. I made the rosette flower using the same technique as the paper. I also added some flowers using neutral tones.
Please hop over to Elaines blog Quixotic cards to see another wonderful creation using Duda Daze stamps. Enjoy your blog hop!!!!
