Today the MFT Desigers are featuring the NEW Inspired by the Sea and NEW You Lift me Up Flopsey! I couldn't resist this cute bunny, Flopsey with his uplifting bouquet of balloons. I thought I would try my hand at colouring in the texture/fur with my Copics as MFT Designer, Michele, shared in the colouring tutorial post, here. It didn't quite turn out as good as Michele's but I was happy with my first attempt. I'm, admittingly, not very good about colouring animals and so have usually steered clear of animal stamps but am starting to give it a shot and who can resist cute Flopsey.

I also coloured in some grass, ground and shading with my Prismacolour Pencils and Gamsol. I cut the image out with my Circle STAX Die-namics and layered it over the NEW Designer Label 3 STAX. The papers are from a BasicGrey Serendipity 6x6 paper pad. The cute sentiment is stamped on kraft cardstock cut with one of the NEW Sentiment Strips, I then lined it up and ran it through to re-cut it to fit the size of the sentiment and my card.  I found the perfect green cotton lace trip in my ribbon bin and added a little Cappuccino Twinery Twine with a gorgeous button from Buttons Galore and More, Kiwi Colour Blends package. Finally I sprinkled a few green gems here and there.

 Here is the inside of the card...pretty simple but I just can't resist doing a little something on the inside of a card. I stamped You Lift Me Up Flopsey again. I used another one of the cute sentiments from this set stamped on one of the fabulous NEW Sentiment Strips and layered over the NEW Designer Label STAX.

 Well, Thanks SO much for stopping by today and having a wee peek at my card with the super cute NEW You Lift Me Up Flopesy. Now head on over to Kim's blog and check out all the gorgeous cards that the other MFT Designers are sharing today with the NEW Inspired by the Sea and You Lift Me Up Flopsey.


Happy Stampin'!
Hugs,
