Challenge #90
Inspired by a Book

This fortnights challenge 'Inspired by a Book' has been chosen by Josephine.  I am not a great book reader, just can't sit still long enough to enjoy reading and I am not a speed reader by any means.  There are a few favourite authors I enjoy like Jodi Piccult and Val McDermid  and some memorable reads over the years - War and Peace, War and Remembrance, Animal Farm, Watership Down along with Lord of the Rings trilogy.  For my creation this fortnight I have chosen 'Watership Down' by Richard Adams as my inspiration, with the lone rabbit, deep in thought with his dreams being Fiver.  You can read more about the rabbit families trials and tribulations as they find ways to survive here 

I designed the top cut out layer which was then cut on my die cutter as I wanted a circle with a mound for Fiver to sit on.  The rabbit and tree branches are stamps are from the Creative Stamper magazine and the wild flowers in the foreground are Sheena Douglas.  Distress Inks were used along to create the backgrounds with a fair bit of masking involved as I built up the layers.  The moon has a coat of Crafter's Companion Silver Glitter varnish which I applied thickly then finished off with a blast across the whole background - the rabbit was masked yet again at this point as I don't think he would appreciate all the bling :)
