Bunnicula Inspired Blog Hop

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!

  10. even though the scan is messy I can still tell it is an awesome piece. I love those little altered tins. The texture on yours looks very cool too. Maybe I'll get to touch it. No one know's but you. that face on the front is very cool looking too. Looks like there might be a scary looking rabid rabbit inside. awesome job sorry it took me so long to get here. everyone knows I'm always late and now you do too. forgive me.
