The One That Got Away

Hello.  Welcome.  For my birthday I received lots and lots of handmade cards from my crafty friends all around the world, so big HUGZ to everyone who sent me happy mail.  Some of these had little gifts as well and this lovely You Lift Me Up Flopsey stamp came winging it's way in from my friend Janis.  Hi Janis.  This is an MFT stamp, so I hopped over to see what fun was to be found on their blog.  They have a colour challenge and a weekly sketch, so I did this..........

I stamped the bunny on some rose patterned paper, fussy cut a bit round his ear and balloons and cut my tag with Stamplorations medium luggage tag die. I coloured the bunny with Dried Marigold distress ink and the balloons with blue Promarkers.  The bunny worked fine, but the background colours made the balloon colours look muddy, so I stamped the balloons on a scrap of white card, coloured, fussy cut and stuck them on.  I was going to put the tag on a circle patterned background, but it didn't look right so I had this idea to use the same rose paper!  I lined up the tag to match the background pattern and cut the panel with Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die.  I used some blue scraps for the sentiment banner using the 'for you' from the bunny set and mounted on a blue base card.  It looked a bit bare so I added a bit of natural colour lace and a balloon brad with a bit of cotton attached.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
