Mo's Digital Challenge 24 - Sketch Challenge

Cathy, our March hostess over at Mo's Digital Challenge blog, has set her last challenge as a sketch. And what a great sketch it is!

I think I like square cards almost as much as I like long cards, lots of space to add embellishments.

I decided I wanted to use the newest freebie from Mo's Digital Pencil called "Late".  You can pick this image up on Mo's Paper Craft Planet group.  Join the group so you can stay up to date on all of Mo's new images and challenges.  I love this rabbit's forlorn look!  "He's late, he's late for a very important date!" 

I began by cutting my card stock to 6" square, deciding what size square would fit on it turned on a diagonal (3 7/8 inches) then getting out my Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities to see what size circle (3.5 inches) would fit.  Then I took the image into Photoshop Elements, drew a 3.5 inch circle and adjusted the bunny to fit.  Kind of backwards of the way I usually work, but it came together perfectly.  Copics used:
Rabbit - B000, E70, RV11
Vest - BV01
Shirt - G40
Watch - YR23

I airbrushed E70 around the image before removing it from the Spellbinders die.  I used white Rainbow Tape to make the stripes on the green pieces of card stock.  I also added vertical scores to the purple panel behind the circle but it does not show very well on the scan.   The DP is from Got Moxxie. 

Be sure to visit Mo's Digital Challenge blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has created this week.  And join in on the fun for a chance to win a free Mo Manning digi image.
