Simon Says - Easter/Spring

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I've been busy making Easter treat bags for family and friends and surprise, surprise I managed to use up another 2 backgrounds from my Tim Holtz Distress Spray Q&A YouTube Live pile. 

I began by attaching Sizzix Adhesive Sheets to scraps of thin white card, covered with Sizzix felt from the Neutral and Pastel packs and die-cut using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mr Rabbit BigZ die. Using a little bit of creative surgery, I gave Mr Rabbit a pink jacket, fluffy white tail, pink inner ears and trimmed out his leg from the second die-cut to create some dimension. I added Stormy Skies and Party Mix Glossies enamel dots for his eye, nose and buttons on his jacket and added a bow, die-cut using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Winter Wardrobe Thinlits.
I fixed the monoprint background, created with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Flourish Layering Stencil and Distress Sprays, to the bag and added strips of another Distress Sprays background to fill in the gap.
I added Tim Holtz Idea-ology Velvet Trim Warm and foliage die-cut using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Funky Nature Thinlits.
I die-cut the flower heads from left over pink felt, fixed to the panel, added a Velvet Trim knot and Mr Rabbit, popped up on Sizzix Foam Adhesive to create dimension.
I stamped the sentiment from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Simple Sayings, inked with Ground Espresso Distress Archival Ink, on to a scrap of Distress Watercolor card coloured with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium.
I die-cut the word Easter from left over pink felt using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Bold Thinlits
