Empty Box Project #15 - Stitched Bunny

While the last 'Empty Box Project' was a struggle, this one was easy! I just randomly grabbed this bunny stamp from the box (part of a set free with Quick Cards magazine, who-knows-when), and I thought...if I can't use a cute bunny stamp on Easter weekend, when can I?

I coloured the bunny with Promarkers and I noticed he had stitched on patches and so I thought it'd go well with the Paper Artsy 'happy' stamp. The rest of the sentiment is Crafters' Companion and the stiitched border I framed the image with is an Inky Doodles stamp.

Just to recap:
On New Year's day I revealed my stamping shame - a big box of unused stamps - and started my Empty Box project. My aim is to work through the box , one stamp/ stamp set at a time and see if I can use them. If I can't use them, I will dispose of them. The aim is to finish with an empty box.
