Sketch Saturday #45 - Easter bunny


I really love this week's Sketch Saturday sketch which was produced by my friend PBSC DT friend Tracie; and Icouldn't wait to use it for one of my Easter cards .. in fact I like this sketch so much I'm planning another card with it as well.

This is my last Easter card - I haven't managed to make as many as I would have liked this year, but I have still enjoyed doing them.

For this one I used a gorgeous RAK image that I received in a Docrafts friendship swap with Margaret (Arum Lily) - it is PB "Bunny Bath" - I think I may need to buy it lol! I coloured the bunny using watercolour pencils and a little glitter on the butterfly, and sponged the edges with Colourbox Q pink ink. I matted the image onto lemon pearlescent card using my brand new large deckle rectangle nesties, which I found a couple of days ago in my local craft shop Edwin Allen, despite them being out of stock in all the major online stores - yay! I also embossed the lemon card using the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls folder, and mounted the lot onto paper from the Papermania "Sweet Nothings" pack. I finished off with raffia lace from Hobbycraft threaded with narrow ribbon from my stash; a mixture of Papermania and WH Smith flowers pinned with a Doodlebug sugar coated brad; and charm, spacer and pearl brads from my stash. The sentiment is also by PB.

I'm on holiday from work today so I'm chillin' .. just need to decide whether to do some cardmaking or go shopping .. or then again maybe I could go craft shopping lol!! Actually I received a little package of yummy spacers from the Hobby House today, so maybe I'll just stay in and play!

Thanks for looking!
