Sweet Sunday Easter

Happy Easter! It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC181.

Given that today is Easter Sunday I went with an Easter theme and used Pure Innocence Bunny Ears from My Favorite Things. I flipped the sketch to fit with the image.

I started with a base of Whip Cream card stock then added layers of Sno Cone and Kraft. I used the Darling Dots stamp set to stamp the polka dots onto the Whip Cream panel using Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink. Then I used the Small Scallop Border Die-namics to cut out the Sno Cone scallop. All the layers were inked with Kraft Premium Dye Ink.

For the image, I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured her with copic markers. I paper pieced the egg with one of the patterns from the Fancy Pants Park Bench collection. I added some Stickles to her ears, tail, and shoes for a little sparkle and popped her on foam tape for dimension.

For the sentiment I used the arrow die from the Accent It-Labels and Tags Die-namics to cut out the Sno Cone arrow. Then I stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. The arrow was a little too long though so I placed it back in the die with the end overhanging and ran it through my Vagabond again to shorten it.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Pure Innocence Bunny Ears.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's Blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
