Saturday Sketch Challenge 235

Good Evening Friends!

Tonight I have a VERY clean and simple card for you. It's following the new sketch challenge over on stamping 411 tonight.

I have been BUGGING to ink up this cute bunny set for Easter for weeks, and finally I just did it! I water colored the image with markers. For the bunny's dress, I started with the wisteria wonder (lighter color marker) then added some concord crush to the bottom and left hand side and slowly blended it upward. I also used an aqua painter and picked up some soft sky, and added some color behind the bunny and for the ground. I did color one of the eggs pink.. I can see that I'm going to be quickly addicted to this set and doing some more cards soon. I love the cute bunnies! I remember being really excited when I got this set Everybunny in July, but then didnt make any cards with it because Easter was over. Super cute!!

Measurements:
Base: wisteria 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored and folded in half at 4 1/4:
Layer 2: whisper white 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
Layer 3: 5 1/4" x 4" wisteria wonder
layers 4 and 5 are both cut from the new framelet dies. I cut the same size in both the white and soft sky. then I cut the soft sky layer in half. Then I reattached it to the bottom of the white layer,pulling both halves apart to have an added layer without layering all the way around the image. :D

I used the 5/8" organza ribbon in whisper white. It's so springy and has a certain sheen to it that just makes me happy. The white button comes from the neutrals button collection, and I made the faux bow by tying the whole thing up with the new soft sky bakers twine.. So pretty!

Something new: I have been curling the end of my bakers twine with the back of my scissors and it adds a little curl.

The embossing folder is "framed tulips" which just sort of fits the sketch and the holiday I made the card for! :D Well, that's all for tonight. Happy New Year!

Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton

All your cards are perfect. I'm a SU hobby demonstrator and I appreciate all the cleaver designs SU demonstrators share. I usually change up something on each card but I'm not talented at starting my own designs. TFS
