I wanted to join in the 2 Sketches 4 You Challenge #22 by Laura this week, but I needed to wait to post it until Natasha was in bed because the card I have made is for her for Easter.
As you've probably all worked out by now I don't really work with pastels very often. Whenever I get out any pastel papers I always want to make the card more dramatic somehow. The little bunny brad from Smirk that I used on this card had a black outline which inspired me to dig out the black! The card actually looks better in real life because the striped paper is sparkly. I think this bunny looks a bit mad with his huge eyes. He looked a bit sad before I put them on and I know Natasha will think they are very funny so I just went with it :o)
I cut out two rectangles in PP and layered them both onto black. On the smaller rectangle I tied on the ribbon and pushed through the bunny brad. I stamped the bunny sentiment and layered this onto black. I then cut out my bunny, inked all around the edges and pop dotted him so that he looks like he is holding the message. I finally added his boggle eyes for a bit of fun :o)
