Bunny Ornament with The Graphics Fairy

In  late November?  Sure, especially if the recipient has a bunny for a pet.  I have downloaded many bunny images from The Graphics Fairy, because I always think of my friend when I see them.


Isn't that image great?  I used this technique a few weeks ago in this project, and I wanted to see if I could use it for a glass ornament.  It turns out that you can!


The ornament had already been painted with white acrylic paint on the inside.  I smoothed out the tissue as much as possible, but I don't mind the wrinkles that were left behind at all.


I used a small sponge to apply some paints from Martha Stewart (Seaweed, Putting Green, and Sterling).  Maybe it's just me, but in this picture he looks a little concerned.

I added some black and silver string for a little bow, and called it finished.


I'm so excited to give this to my friend!
