MFT Idol Entry

Hey All! I finally finished up my entry for My Favorite Things Stamping Idol contest. I decided to do a couple techniques that have been on my must try list for a while. I used these cute bunnies from the Tea for Two set and I made a tilt card with that cute little bunny bum. The bum tilts back and forth as you move the card. I used this tutorial by Charmaine and it worked like a charm!

I also wanted to try this Sentimental Slide technique that Lisa Johnson posted on her blog a while ago. The sentiments are on either side of the paper strip and by pulling the ribbons, you expose the sentiment. I shortened the sentiment by selectively inking it as it was too long for the strip (it originally said "To A Tea-rific friend").

Here's a pic of the bum moving and the other side of the sentiment. I also used Crystal Effects on the tea cup polka dots and liquid applique on the bunny tail.

I distressed both top note dies for a little texture.

This card is pretty thick! Everything is up on foam dimensionals to keep it working properly. The bunny bum needs them to tilt, and the sentiment needs them in order to slide.

I'm super nervous about this contest and hope I get a chance to move on!! Thanks for reading and Toodles!!
