Rabbit Canvas

 This an altered canvas that I did to enter the wonderful Grungy Monday Challenge. The canvas itself was a printed one with flowers and such like on it. There were also little clocks on it which gave me the inspiration do use the little rabbit from the Spring Sprung collection by the great Lord Tim of Holtz, the man in whose honour this challenge has been started. I used all of the techniques which he used on the tag which you can find here. I painted over some areas of the canvas with snowcap paint dabber. I then masked off the canvas using the wheels and cogs masks and sprayed with vintage photo re-inker and perfect pearls mixture. The flowers were made from grungepaper, two of them were covered first. The edges of the canvas were painted with the fab crackle paints in tattered rose, old paper and broken china. I dulled the colours down a bit with vintage photo ink. 
The bunny was stamped on grunge and heat embossed. I painted over him with the snowcap and added a little crown. I think a crown counts as a hat doesn't it? If so I can enter this into the Simon Says challenge which is all about hats.

The art letters are done using the grunge blocks and alphas.
Hope you like it!
