Gone With the Wind

I decided that I was going to make a card using a stamp that I hadn't used in a long time, or only once before. I came across this stamp, which at the time I was excited about getting but then once you get home you realize there is only a few things you can do. I think I am excited about this stamp again :), just because how well this card turned out. I wasn't sure how well it would turn out, since there is some delicate cutting to be done. This is the first picture I took of this card, since I felt you couldn't really see what I had actually done with this I took the picture at the angle. I stamped the image on to watercolor paper twice, then I colored in both images but only cut out the kite and string on the second stamped image. This was a little difficult since the kite string is inly a few mm wide, but I eventually got it all cut out :)! I attached the kite string to the bunny using some Tombow multi glue, and I attached only part of the ribbons and string onto the card. I also used a tiny dimensional on one of the ribbons, to make the card look like the kite was coming out of the card. Make sense?? From there I added layers to the card, I also used my Soft Subtles watercolor crayons and H2O brush to color the sky in.
Going to hve to play around a bit more with the lighting though, because this picture is too dark and the colors I used aren't dark.
