Year of he Rabbit Sister Stamp

THIS is the last of the Sister Stamps Zodiac series: the Year of the Rabbit. For this last Zodiac release, I had to make something using RED as the base color.  The Washi paper used is from Hanko Desgns.  White and Red card stock is from Recollections. Flannel-like Flowers are purchased from Stamper's Corner made by CR Trimmings. In fact, Stamper's Corner has the largest selection of wonderful embellishments and charms perfect for card makers and scrap bookers. Each panel is connected with a small red brad.  Red eyelets are used for the top and bottom of the project. A small cord is used to hang the project.  A red rayon tassel from my stash is at the bottom of the project.
Total length is 12" long excluding the tassel:
The first panel has the Rabbit Kanji using Recollections red and white card stock. You can see the felt flowers more clearly in this photo.  The white flowers are made using a small Sakura Flower punch with an adhesive pearl in the center. This section is 4-3/4"
Copic markers used: G07, G21, G24, G99, W1, W4, W5, W6, R29, Y17, E000, R11, R83. yes, the various shades of green grass is using the flicking of the brush end of the marker. The stones are made by depressing the brush end of the marker. Size is 4-1/4".
The Bunny head is stamped separately, then cut and popped with foam squares.
Year of the Rabbit is cut using Recollections red card stock from my Silhouette using Arial Font, welded in the Silhouette program and a shadow (white card stock) made. Size is 3-1/2".
This is the larger Martha Stewart Butterfly punch using Vellum card stock I had in my stash. Finish the butterfly with adhesive pearls:
And, here is the smaller Martha Stewart Butterfly punch and adhesive pearls:
Hope everyone has enjoyed this and all eleven other Zodiac postings.  This is a great series to have for using not just each horoscope year but for other types of cards, too.
