For this week's CAS scallop challenge and white/watercolor on kraft technique challenge. In keeping with the dirt cheap DD challenges this month, the bunny image is embossed on salvaged paper. It's a toilet paper core. I soaked the core so it'd come unglued, then pressed/dried it. You can see remnants of the core in front of the card... and the white scallops/inside panel are cut from copier mistakes. Someone ran off a class set of math worksheets on cs, rather than regular bond weight paper. I rescued the mistakes from the recycle bin. Can you see the ten-grid? The card's sitting on one of my last sheets of rescued copier cs.
After heat embossing the bunny, I painted diluted acrylic, and then watercolored. Not necessarily successfully. Eh! Live and learn.

Very cute Brenda!!! So clever to use a toilet paper core!!! I was glad for today's TLC.... brought me back to something I haven't done in years and had forgotten about, and found not as easy as it sounds! I need to practice it a LOT more!!! :) Love your sweet bunny image!
