Sweet Sketch Wednesday: Digistamp Boutique

Sooooo, it is not Friday, it is not 5 to 5, so that means it is not time for Crackerjack.  However, it is Wednesday, so that means that it is time for another challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, and for my offering this week, I thought I would make a start on Easter:

The sketch this week is a good one (I think anyway) and I found it really simple to use:

The adorable image is from our sponsor this week, Digistamp Boutique, who actually sponsor SSW on a monthly basis, which is fine by me as I have been a fan of their digis for a long time already. 

I coloured this little guy in distress markers and chose to make him brown this time, as opposed to grey as I did in my last SSW Digistamp Boutique offering, which you can find here.

I decided to try and make the image as bright as possible, as I always associate Easter with brightness. 

I followed the image through to my papers, using a blue star paper from my stash (I can't remember where it came from) and some handmade, slightly see-through, yellowy-orange paper.  The blue ribbon is from my stash and I circle punched some blue paper and stamped 'Easter Blessings' in black versamark ink using my Lili of the Valley postmark sentiments stamp set.  Finally, I added a little gold star to the centre of the circle.  This is one of the many sparkles I pulled from my hair and wedding dress after my wedding, where my Auntie Jacky decided it would be put to cover me in sparkles.  I am still finding sparkles randomly turning up around the house nearly two months later.  Never mind, they all come in handy for crafting.
Happy Crafting!
