Bo Bunny Sketch Challenge

Bo Bunny issued a sketch challenge - and I couldn't resist! The sketch was created by the super talented Rita Shimniok. For tons of inspiration... check out her blog here:

Here is the sketch:

I used Bo Bunny's "Tis the Season" line for my layout. Yes... this is a Christmas line - but I used it for an engagement layout! See how versatile it is?! I also used some flourish stickers from the Abbey Road collection.

Here is my layout:

I created the flowers using directions by Bo Bunny Design Team Member Tonya Dirk... THANK YOU to Tonya! I inked the flowers with Distress Ink and then spritzed them with Glimmer Mist for sparkle! The red heart is also spritzed with glimmer mist and them stitched onto the layout.

Here's a closeup:

Lastly... I for a helpfult hint! The flourishes were green - but I wanted them to be more brown so I used my StazOn ink pad and a Inksesstials foam dauber to re-color them to a brown. Then I outlined the flourishes (and the title) to give them more definition.

Visit the Bo Bunny site here: for a look at their new releases - they are fabulous!
