Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #139: Hippity Hoppity

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Hello Friends! With Easter coming up fast, I thought I'd use an Easter theme for my Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #139 card. My Creative Classroom is sponsoring the challenge this week. They have on-line arts & crafts courses--and a few are even free!

Jessica George came up with a fun sketch for us this week! 

The stamp set I used is called "Hippity Hoppity," from Our Craft Lounge. Aren't they adorable. There's also a bunny in that set, as well as a few more sentiments. Here's a close up of the three images I used today:
I colored the frog with Copics, then added Stickles for a glittery egg, and Sparkly Fluff on his bunny ears. I'm not sure you can see it in this photo, but I used Glossy Accents on his eyes, too.

I colored the basket with Copics and added some glittery eggs with Stickles.

This little guy is colored with Copics, and I gave him a snazzy, sparkly shell with Stickles.

On the inside of  the card, I glued the strip of dp, that was left over from the front, across the middle of the inside of the card. The sentiment panel is a Curved Rectangle Nestie. I stamped the carrots in a tangerine Memento ink and colored them with Copics. I used a green Sharpie to draw the sprigs on top of them. Wild Honey Distress Ink is sponged along the edges (inside the die).

Be sure to head on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to see all the yummy goodness the rest of the DT has to share with you, then create your own interpretation of the sketch and link up for a chance to win! I can't wait to see what you create!

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp: Bingo (Die cuts, lace, glitter)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a fabulous week!
