Belly Bunny

I hadn't done a silly bunny yet this year so I thought I'd better correct that by creating a new bunny for 2009. This is "Belly Bunny," a distant relative of The Easter Rabbit. Unfortunately for this little guy, he has a sweet tooth for all things chocolate and loves those fabulous little Jelly Belly jelly beans. Originally they gave him the nickname, "Jelly", but as his tummy got larger and larger as he worked in quality control overseeing Easter treats, they changed his nickname to "Belly." He doesn't mind, he just tops his round little belly with a beautiful bow tie (covered in German glass glitter of course) and he is off to work to find a new jelly bean or chocolate to start his day.

His body is painted like an Easter egg and he has a little tail popping out the back.
"Belly Bunny" no longer delivers confections on Easter morning...he lets the Pumpkin Bunnies handle that now while he lounges and enjoys a Peep.

Have a great day and happy creating!!

I'm getting into the glitter a bit more and he needed a special
"something", so the sparkle went onto the bow tie. I got three new colors of glitter so I had to use them!! HA

Don't ever let the kids read your blogging--TEE HEE! Thanks for the compliment--Belly Bunny thanks you too!

I love making rabbit ears and I needed to get at least one bunny done this year so he may be it. The colors didn't turn out too bad after the glazing. They were a little to intense for me prior to the brown glaze being added.

Thank you for liking Belly Bunny...he really wanted you to think he was special.

Monkey-Cats Studio said...

Thank you girl...he is a round little thing but I guess jelly beans and chocolate tasting all day long doesn't make us long and lean. HA!

Thank you for stopping by!

Thank you lady!! Annie's glitter sure perked up his appearance. Thanks for putting me on to the glass glitter.

Cute expression Laurie! His sparkle bow is great! He's a bunny after my own heart, I love Jelly Belly beans!

Hi Leah, and thank you for commenting. Doesn't everybody love a good jelly bean?! I don't dare buy them because I will eat a few, eat a few more and suddenly the whole bag is gone!! Jelly Belly's are my favorite, but good ole' jelly beans still are near and dear to my heart (in my belly).
