Easter Bunny

I wonder if this little Easter bunny has eaten too many Easter eggs?  He looks like he's struggling to peer over his large tummy ! Anyway, this week at 2 Sisters, the theme is a sketch by yours truly!!!  This is a big 'first' for me as it is my first ever published sketch!  I'm so humbled to see my little sketch "in print" and am sooo looking forward to seeing what you all do with it. 


For my DT card, I've used a cute little image from Stitchy Bear, who are our sponsors for this week along with Pizzaz Aplenty. As soon as I saw him, I couldn't resist him.  I've coloured him in Vanilla promarkers, shading him partially and leaving some white showing. I've used a soft peach for his ears, nose, cheeks and paw pads and a touch of blue in his eyes.  I've also shaded around him with blue shimmer chalks.  I've used a Stitchy Bear gingham backing paper for the main card, a Robyn's Fetish butterfly paper for the horizontal asymmetric panel and a tag sentiment from Hobby Paleis.  The flower ribbon was a Xmas pressie from my MIL, but I think it was from John Lewis (Unfortunately I don't have a John Lewis near me, I think the nearest is about 100 miles away and I only get to go there a couple of times a year as it is a halfway stop point for visiting the "out-laws"!)


Please pop on over to the 2 Sisters blog to enter our challenge, and also I'd really love it if you leave me a comment to let me know what you think of my sketch! 

I've been inspired by the following:
Happy crafting
