Sweet N Sassy sponsoring Friday Sketchers

Hi there! What a week here for me. I have a doozy of a cold so I am very glad that I did this card earlier in the week when I was not feeling sick yet. The sketch this week from Friday sketchers is being sponsored by Sweet N Sassy stamps. So, one lucky participant in the challenge is going to receive 2 digis free by random drawing. I tend to really like their sketches and this week is no exception. The sketch and my sample are below.





I colored my adorable benjamin bunny image with copics and then went over the image at the end with my copics using light feathery strokes to simulate fur. I sponged on some baja ink behind him to create a shadow and then sewed around the edges.

This card was also created for the Verve Project parade and this month's theme is Fun with Flowers. What a great theme in time for the start of spring! So for my flowers...the dp, the primas, and the flower in the pot on the image.



Supplies:
digi image- Sweet N Sassy stamps Benjamin bunny
CS- Paper Temptress Neenah white and berrylicious, SU rust and dp
accessories- primas, white brads, sparkle brads, circle cutter, lace, copics


I hope you will be able to play along with this week's sketch. You can get all the info on the Friday sketchers blog.

Also, don't forget to check out the Verve Project Parade on the Verve blog. There are some great prizes being offered!
