Bo Bunny Enchanted with Jess

Hey there GORGEOUS bloggy buddies : )

Remember when I told ya'll about Bo Bunny - Enchanted at my2angels?
Well I got sent some from Tracy, man I am one very spoilt dt angel!!!!

This paper range is so very versatile. It just screams out for you to add colour! It's a great range to add stickers, alphas, journalling blocks etc that you've got leftover from other paper ranges as well.
For my first layout I added yellow....gotta love yellow, black & white combo......

For the background I spread gesso on the paper with an old credit card then used the inkssentials blending tool with Tim Holtz distress ink - mustard seed over the Crafter's workshop - swiss dot template.....if you haven't got any Crafter's Workshop templates......GET YOURSELF SOME!!!!! They are awesome! You can use all sorts of mediums on them; spraysinksstainspaint dabbers, texture paste.....the list goes on.....

 A cute small heart locket charm which I tucked under the paper rosette flower. The flower is made with the Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die By Tim Holtz, I attached a large yellow acrylic button to the centre with charcoal bakers twine. Instead of using twine for making swirly whirly loops on my page I thought I'd try something different, so I used the black acrylic chain with rhinestones, it suits the glitter accents of the paper range.

Here I've used a black scroll felt heart layered over a small yellow acrylic button and a white with yellow centre mulberry flower. The tag is made with a manila tag, which I stamped with clear ink, then embossed with Zing clear embossing powder. I then coloured the whole tag with Tim Holtz distress stain - mustard seed, make sure to pat the tag with paper tower after using the distress stain, the stamping will show through even better.

Ok next up is layout number 2. I've used another fave colour combo, red, white & black. 
I created the "circles" by cutting a large and small circle out of old card stock to use as a mask. I dabbed around the edge of the mask with Tim Holtz distress stain - fired brick, just remember the harder you "dab" the distress stain down, the more ink comes out, which means bigger "splats". The red layer under the photo is made with Tim Holtz kraft core - No.3, which I embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder - tiny bubbles, which I lightly sanded. The paper "tabs" are made using the Sissix on the edge die.

I cut the "small" side off a black felt scroll frame, and layered it over paper and a scrapware square bracket notebook chippy. I attached a large red acrylic button with charcoal bakers twine & added a butterfly (I layered three on top of each other) which I blinged up with some red pearls

As this layout is about my gorgeous little man being a gift to us, I made a gift bow style flower to go with the theme. I made the bow with Tim Holtz film strip ribbon, a small red acrylic button and some charcoal bakers twine.

I SO love these ladybug charms!

And there you have it folks.....a wee bit of Bo Bunny - Enchanted : )

I hope everyone is having an awesome Chrissy season!!!

Love and Peace xox
