Patches minus the patch (and a few other things)

It's the beginning of the month, and the beginning of another wave of digital freebies from Designed2Delight. This week's gift is an image of a bunny in a sweater with easter eggs. I don't do easter cards, so I wasn't particularly enthused, but the rabbit is cute. I pulled the image into my Paint Shop Pro to see about removing the basket and eggs, and ended up removing a lot more than that. After I stripped the image down to a plain bunny in a plain shirt, I decided that the image looked a little... static. How to liven a static image? Moving parts!



I made him into an art doll, with moving limbs and ears, and I even added some googly eyes! This was a lot of fun to do, and not difficult at all. Oh, and the colors he is wearing are for the Sunflowers and Dragonflies challenge. He is also nice and Springy for Get Sketchy.

In case you are wondering about the size, here is my bunny folded up and put in an ATC sleeve.
