Spring Planting

I was digging through some old stamps, non SU stamps and come across some Easter ones I thought I would play with. This one is so cute and they are ready for planting. Which I wish we could be doing right now. This stamp is from Uptown Rubber Stamps.
Hope you enjoy today's project.
Supplies I used was:
Bunny Stamp from Uptown Rubber Stamps
Black Organdy Ribbon
Rectangle double punch (SU)
Bashful Blue, Whisper White and Black card stock
New Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder
Water color pencils and Gamsol
As you can see this is my first try at the gamsol for water-coloring. But, didn't do to bad for the first shot at it. On the scan it shows a little smudge in the upper left hand corner. Not sure where that came from but think it is my scanner again, must need cleaning.
The ribbon was done using the rectangle double punch from SU. Punch your holes and take a long piece of ribbon. Run it through from the front to the back so you have both pieces of ribbon in the inside. Double over on one side and run it through the hole, pull it through the opposite hole. Pull from back so you have your 1/2 bow in front. Do the same with the other side. Now you have your ends still in the back. So you need to run them through to the front again. Cross them and run them through on the opposite side like you did the bow on and pull tight. You now have a perfect bow in front. I hope my instructions make sense to you so you can do one. Good luck. Oh I did cut my ribbon even once I seen in the scan it was way off. LOL
Happy Stamping.
