My Bunny and Me

Today's card uses another adorable digi image from Softpencil called My Bunny and Me (you can find it at the Softpencil Etsy shop).

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits, plus Copics for her face, hands, and legs. I've heard of people combining the 2 mediums and I was afraid they would look funny together, but after doing it here I can say that it looks fine.

I added 2 micro pearls for her hair bands, but unfortunately they kind of look like earrings so I don't think I'll add them again in the future!

Here's a close shot with flash so you can see that I glitter-fied the balloon (I just can't stop adding that Stardust glitter pen to everything I make!):

The sketch I used is a Jen del Muro Sketch For You To Try. I also played in a Pile It On challenge which was to use at least 2 different ribbons. My card also qualifies for the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge which was to use a digi stamp image. Whew! That's a lot of challenges for me on 1 card! I hope you like it and TFL!

Other materials used: sentiment - Papertrey Ink (Simple Little Things limited edition set); patterned paper - Fancy Pants (Key Lime collection); white cardstock - Georgia Pacific; Classic and Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilities; ribbons - May Arts; tiny pearls - MimiLolo Etsy store; button from stash.

  13. What a really sweet image Maureen, and you've colored her magnificently. I'm glad you tried out two mediums for your coloring, I always like to mix different mediums on a card, depending on what look I want to achieve. Love the soft pastels of your papers and great use of the ribbons. And you can never have too much glitter on a card, it's nice to have some sparkle.
    Thank you for participating in the "Stampin' for the Weekend" challenge this week.. Good luck and we hope you'll continue to join in on the challenges on a weekly basis. Have a lovely day.
