I combined the SCS sketch challenge with some other challenges yesterday. It was fun to break out my new The Cat's Pajamas stamps and play...I think this bunny is sooo cute! The set has some really fun sentiments too, but I didn't know how to work them in with the sketch...maybe the inside of the card (sadly, I usually neglect the inside of my cards!).
Bunny is colored with pencils, his eyes and belly-button dotted with a black gel pen, and his wings accented with glitter. I cut out his ear then ran it through my Cuttlebug with a Spellbinders die (see below for a tip). I added a small sentiment and some acrylic gems and called it good.
Tips and Tricks: My poor little bunny's ear was a bit worse for the wear after running him through the Cuttlebug. My plates are a bit battered and left some ugly marks on the front, so I used my bone folder to burnish the backside of the paper. I had to rub really hard, but it did the trick!
