You Crack Me Up

You crack me up, you really really do
With your sunglasses on, acting so young.

MFT PI Bunny Ears

Happy Saturday, everyone. Watching the news this morning I couldn't help but be a little envious of all the snow that Northeast is getting. But, I know that would be short lived because I don't even own a winter coat. In fact, we had such warm weather in Texas this week that the dogs have started shedding their winter coat. We have a different kind of precipitation going on right inside the house.

My Prismacolor Pencils have been feeling so neglected since I started playing with Copic markers. They call my name every time my friends Inge and Dorcas create such masterpieces. I love the soft look they provide.

After seeing Inge's amazing tutorial as part of the new MFT Academy, I was inspired to play with my pencils again, especially since she makes it look so easy.

If you want to start small while you build up your collection of pencils, this little Pure Innocence Bunny Ears is perfect. It has lots of open areas and just a wisp of hair to color.

Here's just a very simple inside for my card. I love using tone-on-tone stamping for a subtle effect. I used the Kraft ink on Kraft paper and just touched it off with a little Banana Split (yummy) button.

Tips & Tricks

I stamped the image and colored it on X-Press It Blending Cardstock because this cardstock works so beautifully for blending both Copics and Prismacolor pencils.

To add some texture but still keep the card simple and sweet, I used Banana Split Felt to create scallops with the Medium Simply Scallops Die-namic.

I used the new MFT Black Licorice Ink for the sentiments. Its coverage is bold and it dries super fast. These sentiments fit perfectly inside the Chat Bubble Die-namics.

The buttons in the Button Border Die-namics are perfect to making buttons to match the patterns and colors of your project.

There are so many fun things you can do with the fluffy parts of this image, the bunny tail and the pom poms on the shoes. I added Flower Soft. I didn't have Flower Soft glue, but any white glue that dries clear will work.

I stuck closely to Inge's tutorial and used the same pencils she recommended for skin and hair.

There's still another week to play with Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 177.


Here are the rest of the ingredients. 

I hope you'll take a peek at the My Favorite Things Academy for a close look at Inge's tutorial, Rumor has it there are more amazing tutorials already in the works.
