OWH blog skip

This is the last stop on the skip. I hope you have enjoyed the different take we have all had with this Whipper Snapper image provided to us by Barb. If you arrived here other than via the links on the OWH Stars & Stamps blog you can click this link and start at the top.

Barb sent all of us a kit with the image and included the papers we were to use. The image really puzzled me. I could see his feet facing forward. I saw what I thought was his nose down low or maybe his tail. It looked like his rear end sticking up at the top but why would a rear end have whiskers! I thought he was bent over looking through his legs because his ears were touching the ground. That couldn't be because his feet were facing forward! I went to the Whipper Snapper site and found the stamp so I knew I could get the colors right. Finally I gave the site link to a couple of friends and asked them to explain this image to me. They laughed at me. What I thought was his nose was a belly button. He had his head tipped back and was smelling the flower. Of course! Now I could see it! Yes, I was able to laugh at myself.

 I had 4 papers to choose from so I picked 3 to work with.

There is a bunny hop (blog hop) coming up soon and I would like to invite you all to sign up here. There is also a bloghop button on my sidebar with the link. I am going to link you back now to S&S blog

LOL--that is hilarious. Your image is colored so beautifully. I like the shape you put him in and the way your ribbon picks up the colors.

Paula said...

I've done that with some images myself over the years but I wasn't smart enough to research it before I made my mistakes. I love the rich coloring on the image, especially the flower and the sentiment is a perfect match for the image.

LOL!!! the image threw me for a loop at first too...so, your not the only one, hehehe!!!
Your coloring job is awesome and your card is beautiful!!!
Happy Skippin' ;)

Holly / InkPaperStamps said...

LOL, hey I was wondering exactly the same thing. . . who knew that bunnies have belly buttons--and such big ones too! He's just adorable!

Ivanka said...

So cute Cora! I love your story about the image. I've done that a time or two as well! Beautiful coloring!

Conniecrafter said...

very cute Cora, great coloring, and cute tag. your story had me laughing, I usually do that with flower images, can't tell the difference between the flowers and the leaves or other things in the stamp.

StampTramps said...

I think everyone has had that problem with a stamp or two over the years - nice to hear someone admit to it though :) love how your card turned out once you figured out up from down for the bunny -- nice job

Caryl P said...

I like the shape you used to cut out the imge. Nice work!

Operation Write Home said...

Cute - I was priveleged to see your card in real life and it's even CUTER! I had to laugh at your puzzlement over the image too - his belly totally threw me, I was trying to see it as his tail, and thought we were maybe looking at the back of the bunny! heehee.

Jan Hunnicutt said...

Great card! I've had images I had to study awhile before I colored them too, it's interesting how we can see different things. Great skip, I enjoyed seeing all your different takes on the same supplies, thanks!

Nana Connie said...

Love that you shared about the image being confusing! I have done that myself more than once so it's nice to know I'm not alone. :-) Love the end result of your card. Obviously, once you figured it out, your creativity really started working! Great project.

I like how you cut the bunny out into the fun shape!! I like your take on it! You're so funny! And I love that you can laugh at yourself! Sure saves everyone a bunch of heartache! :)

Cindy's Card Co said...

Cora that is so funny. I've had this stamp for a few years now and it's got the picture on the wood so I didn't have to figure it out. But it does look like a bunny tail on his belly. We should glue cotton on it and confuse everyone!! Your card turned out really cute.

grandmalee said...

Awesome layout and special touches! I love how you used the flower shape for the background for the image...how fitting! Great ribbon choice, too! I know what you mean about looking at the image & trying to figure it out...I've done it many times myself!
