"Carrot" for a Smooch?

     I think we all 'care' for smooches if they come from the right person but this image led me to a bit of word play with the sentiment.  Just look at the expressions on the faces of these two bunnies!

     The image is from Sasayaki Glitter and is for their FB Progressive Challenge.


    The image is colored with ProMarkers, and cut with a stitched square die from Lawn Fawn.  I inlaid the image piece into another die cut piece (QuicKutz.)   This is something new for me.  I've done inlaying of die cuts before but this is the first time I've tried inlays using unrelated die sets.  Always before, I've either used only one die (inlaying it into a background piece also cut with the same die) or used different size dies from the same set.  But this time I inlaid it into a die cut from a completely different company.  I like the results and will probably use this new technique quite a bit.

    I layered that entire piece onto a scrap of grunged-up, 12" x 12" paper left over from another project I finished a week or so ago.  It was still lying on my craft table so I just used it.  :-D  I added sheer, gold ribbon and tied an accordion-fold bow from a little scrap of wide, beige, fabric, ribbon.  The sentiment was printed and put on top of a die cut border piece (also QuicKutz.)
