Mad March Hare or a sweet Spring bunny 2 for Country View Crafts

 Mad March Hare or a sweet Spring Bunny? 

This is my second inspirational project for Country View Crafts March theme.
I do love making a piece of home decor especially for special occasions, so this has been added to my Easter display box.

Cut Tim Holtz Mr Rabbit die, prime with white gesso then pounce grey acrylic paint over it.

Take modelling paste and pounce over and dry.

Add some rusty looking areas and paint in an eye.

Add a circular top to a wooden box and gesso it all.
Scrape gesso over all areas with a palette knife and dry.
Use Scorched Timber, Walnut Stain, Hickory Smoke and Black Soot distress watercolor pencils to create drips and drops on the surfaces.

Use the tiny Tim Holtz Sidekick Order 'Springtime' pack of dies to cut the little rabbit from a scorched timber distress oxide background and the butterflies I cut from a leftover piece of distressed painty background. Add them to the box with some greenery from the Holiday Greens and Festive Gatherings dies.

I added moss and natural elements to the little nest I stuck the rabbit to.....

..... and I stuck this to a base and added more moss and sticks.

I have placed this piece of decor under a cloche to form part of an Easter display in my dining room.

Here is a shabby metal rabbit I have that gave me the inspiration for this project.
