Well, Hello!

I thought the colors from The Cat's Pajamas Tuesday challenge looked like fun, so I thought I'd play along. I found some SU! DP that worked perfectly and I decided to go with this cute bunny...one last nod to the summer that has come and gone. How can it be fall already?!

The image is colored with pencils and I paper pieced some of the pinwheels. I ran the image panel through the Cuttlebug to add a bit of texture and added some felt grass for more texture. (The grass was actually scraps I had sitting on the table...isn't it great when you get the opportunity to use up scraps?) I used some tiny brads in the center of the pinwheels along with a black gel pen for the bunny's eyes. I stamped my sentiment on DP and paired it with a rosette made from a TCP CutUps die...they really are easy to make. I topped the rosette with a button tied off with Divine Twine.

Image: The Cat's Pajamas
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Smokey Shadow, SU! Rich Razzleberry, SU! DSP Cottage Wall
Embellies: Spare Parts Mini Brads, PTI Ripe Avocado Button, Devine Twine in Oyster
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, TCP Easy Rosette CutUps die, MFT Die-namics Grass Die/Felt

I used Jen del Muro's September Sketch For You To Try...it was a good one, I'm sure I'll be using it again.

Thanks for stopping by today!
