Twisted Bunnies
Topic: Stamping

The bunny stamp I used yesterday has these big loopy ears. I decided to do a little surgery on him to make him more flexible. Here's how:

Here you can see the flat material inside the ears. This is what I removed:

I folded the ear in half from the end and used sharp scissors to cut a slit:


With the ear flattened back out I put the point of the scissors in the slit and cut the material out:

This is what it looks like after the surgery:


The bunny still lays normally on the acrylic block if you want it to:

But you can lift the ear off the block adjust the line and stick it back down:

Adjust one ear or both:

Now you can give your bunnies more personality. These are the cards I made - same stamping, coloring and mounting process:

Some are less successful than others:

I have another bunny stamp that I plan to subject to the same treatment before stamping him.

Debbie-

I really like how you altered the stamp so you could make the ears flexible.  I'll have to see what stamps I have that I can modify.

Thanks!

I love the idea of altering a stamp to get more out of it.  I have only done it to sentiment stamps but will be looking at all stamps with a different view from now on .  I also commented on OWH
