Happy Easter! - Friday Sketchers #47

Sunday, 12 April 2009
Happy Easter everyone! Hope you get lots of yummy chocolate eggs to enjoy as it's the one day of the year we needn't feel guilty about eating it!

As I said in my previous post, I must try and start participating in a few more challenges so I thought "why not check out the Friday Sketchers challenge this week?" Jacqueline has come up with a fabulous sketch for us to follow and I couldn't wait to try it out.

I used the cute Hunny Bunnies from CC Designs that I got from Dies to Die For. I've coloured with copics before cutting out with oval nesties and mounting onto a scalloped oval. The base is made up of using a piece of last years DCWV Spring Stack pack and adhered to some pale blue bazzill basics card which I have also used for the strip across the top. I've cut the swirl from a Sizzix die (scribble swirl I think). The sentiment is from Elyzbells. I've finished off by adding some gemstones.

It's a bit different for me as I'm not used to using dp, but wanted to give it a go. I've tried to coordinate the colours on the paper with those that I've used to colour my bunny. Any tips on how I can improve would be greatly appreciated!

Have a great day everyone and thank you for stopping by.
