Spinning Bunny!! - New Sami Stamps Release

Happy Friday!!
Oh boy...do we have a super cute release for you today at Sami Stamps!  It's called Round Easter Friends and adorable doesn't even begin to describe how cute they are!!

I've chosen to use the Sweet Carrot Bunny image for my card:
I decided to make a spinner card with this image!  He just looked like he needed to be on the move.  I started by first creating a watercolored background by just dropping some colors onto a wet piece of watercolor paper.  I'm a fussy painter so of course I couldn't just let it sit and do it's own thing.  I had to mess around and move the colors till I felt like they were how I wanted them.

Once that was dry, I took the Lots of Dots stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and created a bokeh look over top of the watercoloring.  This helped mute down the bright colors and give it more detail and texture.  I purposefully left some areas empty so that some of the bright color would peak through and add some variance to it all.

When that was done, I created my scallop frame with my Silhouette and cut out the openings from my card base and the watercolor panel.  I colored up my sweet little bunny with some pencils and then attached him to the string in the center of my window.  I learned that stronger thicker string works better...if the string is too whimpy, it won't stay nice and tight with the weight of the image.

I chose a fun sentiment from the For the Record stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and embossed that below my spinning bunny.  Then added a few dots of glossy accents and the card was done!

We are starting a fun new challenge today at Sami Stamps - Add Stitching (real or faux).  I hope you will join us!  Just be sure to use a Sami Stamps image!

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a fabulous weekend! <3
