You all have heard me mention High Hopes Rubber Stamps before and how much I absolutely adore them. Well, they have a 'Guest Designer' spot available and I decided to apply. If you are interested in applying you can find the details HERE.
The challenge was to use this sketch:
I ended up flipping the sketch and modifying it just a wee bit in order to make it work for my Posing Bunny image. The image in relatively large and when using the sketch in a vertical presentation it took up the whole card front and really hid the layers behind it. So I flipped it to a horizontal presentation. I also had the same issue with the greeting (greeting is by Clear Dollar Stamps). Even though I chose one of the smallest greetings I had...it just didn't fit anywhere on the sketch. So, instead I chose to add the greeting directly to the image panel.
Here's my sample:
I decided to "paper piece" some of the features of the Posing Bunny. I stamped the image on white cardstock twice and then again on pink and yellow paper. I cut out the different portions that I wanted to piece (the hat, the ribbon, the lace on the hat and the bunny tail). I still wanted more dimension so I ran the pink hat portions through the cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot embossing folder. Next I colored my bunny using prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits. I then used my Frost Blue Copic marker and outlined the whole image to make it pop. And lastly I glued all the pieces onto the colored image. I also used dimensional adhesive on the tail to make it stick out.
Here's a close up of Posing Bunny:
So...what do you think?
