No tunelling under the Fence!

More snippets from my stash.


The lolly pop sticks came from the odds and ends tub in the potting shed, a bit of shrink plastic for you know what and papers from kirsty Wiseman "Window Box" , Funky Hand "Paper Blossom Green" Correen Silke "SI - orange".

This is what they became. I used Bockingford Water paper for the 6"x 6" card base. Sky was made using pastel chalks and masked cloud shapes. The rabbits are a stamp from Prima Marketing #545086 which I stamped onto the Correen Silke paper and then cut out. One rabbit had his face and paws masked so that he would appear to be facing backwards! The fence was painted using acrylic paints and then covered with crackle paint and distressed ink. (I had seen this done in a magazine by Jo Nevill on how to recycle lolly sticks so thought I would have a go too.) Now what did I use the shrink plastic for? Can you spot it?
I'm still 100% squeaky clean.

WOW I love the way you have made the fence. I think I will use this idea with some quilling and punchcraft and make a garden. So glad you liked my quilling and with hands such as yours you will find it easy indeed!

Cheers
