Spring Fun!

Spring is definatly in the air! We've been enjoying the warmer weather that's come our way by having our morning coffee on the porch again!  LOVE SPRING!
The Stampendous Design Team is sharing desgins that "Contains: Spring!" this week. That means we'll be showing you some of the wonderful designs that have containers full of spring goodness. Today I stretched the rules a little and am sharing this darling Springtime mirror I created for my granddaughters using the adorable Backyard Bunnies set! I think this "contains" a LOT of SPRING!

Happy Easter!

Step 1:  Paint the mirror white

Step 2:  Stamp the images from the Backyard Bunnies set on Mixed Media White Paper with Memento Tuxedo Black and color with Copic markers, stamp several bunnies, eggs, grass and carrots depending on your design

Step 3:  Die Cut all the images with the matching die set, or cut by hand

Step 4:  Use a liquid adhesive to add a piece of springy green paper under the mirror along the bottom part of the mirror to be your "yard" area

Step 5:  Use the Picasso tool and 1/2" stencil brush to add some "clouds" to the sky area (use the Bahama Blue ink)

Step 6:  Lay out your design around the mirror

Step 7:   Use ZipDry and foam tape to place the various pieces where you want them (you can stamp, color and cut out more images if you need them)
I tied the little cluster of carrots with a piece of jute string and used foam tape to pop them up a little

Step 8: 
  Crumble up a combination of Hot Lime and Taupe Color Fragments and glue along the bottom of the grassy area to finish off the bottom edge

Step 9:   I wanted a little more color so I added the partial carrots around the mirror area and a fun polka dotted bow near the top

Absolutely ADORABLE! This frame is going to be LOVED by your granddaughters, they'll love looking in the mirror and be surround by sweet bunnies in a carrot patch. Fabulous job, Louise. Thank you for sharing this week.
