Easter Egg Sketch

Another lovely from Jen Cuthbertson for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog!  


Oh yes, after yesterday's wonderful Blog Party, spring stayed on my mind!  Since Spring Baskets was sitting out on my table, I jumped at the chance to use it again!


Turned the sketch so that I could make those circles into Easter eggs!  I used patterned paper from October Afternoon's "Sidewalks" collection to paper-piece the eggs and make my little scene.  I masked off the sentiment so that I could extend it across the top.  ((Secret:  I got a little ink splotch by the word "hunt", so I stamped over it with a bee!))  Also made some grass and a rick rack border using A Muse Studio dies.

Upload your creation with this sketch HERE by next Friday, February 24th.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project to be eligible to be the randomly-selected player who will win a WMS stamp set of choice.

DON'T FORGET....sneak peeks of this month's release are beginning on Claire's blog TODAY!  You may have seen the first one in the monthly newsletter, so you know you won't want to miss out on the second one!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Spring Baskets, Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream, October Afternoon "Sidewalks" Collection
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Other:  A Muse Studio's grass and rick rack dies, Stickles, Divine Twine in yellow, dimensionals
