Love At First Sight

Do you believe in love at first sight?

 I do! 

When I saw Amber Ink's Love Bunny line, I fell completely head over heels in love with these cuties.

I wanted to honor the passing of the torches by using PURPLE (my torch color) on my first project.

I used Love Bunny - Sorry About That and changed it up a wee bit.

The bunny on the left seems so anxious and the one on the right looks miffed. 
I wanted to see if I could pull off a kiss instead and make it a love connection between these two.

I sponged Snow Cap (Adirondack) very lightly over the embossed Bazzill. 
This gives it a bit of a velvety look which I really like!
I used Grape Jelly (Memento) all around the edges of each layer.
The hearts are from a Stampin' Up! punch. I wanted to use something to hide the miffed bunny's crossed arms. There are rhinestones on there from Stampin' Up! as well. I used my Copic marker V17 to color the rhinestones. The bunnies were shaded with V20 and Y02 was used to highlight the area all around the two bunnies.

Or maybe it should be:
It's a bird! It's a plane! 
It's Torch bearer Jane! 
Seriously though... I really am a "Torchbearing Babe" for the next month for Amber Ink!   
A HUGE hug and THANK YOU!! to Jana Weaver for passing the purple torch to me!
I won't let you down, Jana!
I have been drinking my Smart Water and Gatorade. 
I've been loading up on carbs and protein.
I can do this!
