Besties Easter Bunny Girl

Well here we are, one week away from easter and I am going in to overdrive on my Easter Cards and crafts! As per usual, it has crept up on me and all my plans for moulded chocolates and hand made boxes have gone by the wayside as I try to make the best use of my one and only time to indulge in the many Easter Images that I have collected over the years!

This one is a really sweet Besties digi that I thought would really suit someone I know so I just had to have the image to add to my collection.
As you can see I have decoupaged her up for a bit of extra dimension and I had a lovely time colouring her in with my alcohol pens.

I recently joined an on line class with Kit and Clowder to learn a bit more about face and hair colouring. So far I have only managed to find time to do one lesson which focussed on colouring the face but I learned some really interesting stuff about form, shadow and variation of colours which I have tried to put in to practise. As a result the face has come out a bit brighter than my usual pasty looking people but I am quite pleased how it came out. Still desperately need to nail that hair though!

Anyhow - the rest of the image I coloured to match my chosen digital papers which are from the Nitwits Eggstra Special set, a particular favourite of mine for Spring time cards, and I have finished off with a bit of faux stitching.

Of course I couldn't let all those lovely Easter and Spring themed challenges pass me by, so here comes the list:
