Spring is in the air which means that Easter is right around the corner! So I decided to play around with my punches to see if I could create an adorable little bunny. And I have to say, I was pretty excited about how this little one turned out! If you are not familiar with punch art, it basically consists of using different punched shapes to create an image…and in this case, an Easter Bunny!
Start with a fun background for your bunny! I decided to stamp a piece of crumb cake cardstock with the Hardwood stamp. Kinda looks like the bunny is standing in front of a wood fence or door. 🙂 Every piece of this bunny was created with a different shape. So get out those punches and framelits! I mainly used punches to create the different parts of the bunny but if you have framelits (ovals and circles) those will work just fine as well. Here is a list of the punches used:
- Face of the bunny = Upside down heart
- Eyes = 3/4 inch circle punch
- Body = 2 1/2 inch circle punch
- Feet = Extra Large Oval punch
- Ears = Extra Large and Large Oval punches (you can use oval framelits too)
- Nose = 1 inch circle punch and an itty bitty heart punch
- Eggs = the smallest oval punch you can find (or you can cut them out by hand). You can use your favorite colorful pattered papers for this.
You can use white and black (or gray) markers to drawn on the little swooshes to the eyes and ears. I also sponged a bit of blushing bride ink on the edges of the bunny pieces just to give them a little bit more dimension (they stand out a little better). For the finishing touch, I decided to add a little Easter sentiment cut out with the word window punch and embellished with a few pearls. Oh…and don’t forget to add an adorable little bow on the bunny’s head. Cute, hey?
