Little Bunny Birthday * MFT Sketch Challenge 477

Hello and welcome
to a new Wednesday Sketch Challenge inspiration. Isn't this bunny just the cutest? I made a happy little birthday card but I think this cutie would work very well on a baby card too.


Do you like using patterned paper? I really enjoy it but I often feel a bit overwhelmed on how to use it. Sketches are a great way to use patterned paper without having to think about the layout too much. When I saw the two darker stripes on the sketch, I thought, that would work well with one of the new papers from Birthday Brights. I cut two stripes from the blue happy birthday paper and glued it to my background piece.

I used another piece of the same paper pack for the balloon. This technique is called paper piecing. I stamped my image first on some smooth white paper and then stamped it a second time on the pink paper with the stars. I colored the bunny with alcohol markers (except for the balloon) and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut out the patterned paper balloon right along the black line. Then, I added a bit of Distress Ink to the edges to create a bit of shadow. And now, I glued the ballon into place. 

Next, I die cut a stitched tag and added a cloudy sky with a stencil and some Distress Ink. I adhered the tag to the background and the bunny to the tag with foam tape. Originally, I wanted to add a sentiment banner but I did not like the look of it. So I simply stamped the sentiment directly on the tag. I added a few clear sparkly sequins and my card was done. I hope you got inspired to add pieces of patterned paper to your projects from time to time. :-)
