Usagi

Cat and I have been working on Zindorf tutorials, and a few days ago, I picked this one to try. Cat objected, saying she wanted to do the one we ended up doing two days ago - the tutorial featured rabbits, but since I already decided I wanted to do owls, I did it with owls. Cat did hers with a rabbit. Then (and this is the part that cracks me up), she says that she wants to do the original owl tut that I picked, because she already stamped the owls.

Well, since I already used owls with the rabbit tut, I decided to use a rabbit with the owl tut. I recalled that in Japan, instead of seeing a man in the moon, they see a rabbit, so I took that as my inspiration for this ATC - a plain brown hare striving to transcend the mortal plane to fulfill his destiny as the rabbit in the moon.



I took some chances with the color - instead of sticking to shades of blue, I used some green and purple to develope the color of the sky. I used gold embossing on the leaves and some gold metallic accents on the rabbit to symbolize his spiritual journey.

I had another reason to make a brown and purple ATC as well - it's the challenge this week at Fun with ATCs.
