Today is Smeared & Smudged Forum's Bunnicula Inspired Blog Hop! The cool part about this hop is that we're swapping out our projects secretly to a secret sister. Awesome, huh? For my project, I chose to do an altered Altoid tin. I've been playing lately with a stash of tins & polymer clay. They make the perfect little shadow box.
I apologize for the crappy scans. My lovely dd inadvertently broke my digital camera removing the batteries awhile back. And, as soon as the princess gets her sweet you-know-what out of bed, I'll have her take a couple of photos with her phone/e-mail them to me & I'll let y'all know when better pics are up!
I covered the tin in greenish gold Premo polymer clay and used a Fiskars embossing plate for the texture. The moon was cast in a mold, glued to the baked tin, with some green angelina. Then I painted the inside of the tin black. Inside the lid, I glued a piece of Graphic 45's Haunted Alice in Wonderland pumpkin patch paper, with the pumpkins colored with white. You know who got ahold of each of them. I also added a watch face, showing the time as midnight, also adding a patina'd star, as well as stickers for Bunnicula's name. Then, I took some white polymer clay to make carrots. Little Bunnicula was stamped on heavy bristol paper in Black Staz-on, but I added some red to his eyes and two little vampire type fangs.
These books were some of my daughters' favorites over the years. Thanks for looking!
