There's a 5th Wednesday this month, so Wendy from Repeat Impressions and The House That Stamps Built is offering a sketch challenge and a 5th chance to enter in the month's challenges and win $25 worth of RI Stamps.  

Here's the sketch....I know a lot of you crafters like them...I find them a REAL challenge.  That said, here's the challenge.

Lordy, was this a tough one for me!  It's an interesting design in layers, and after I  completed my project I thought of other things I might have used and done with this sketch.  Crazy, huh?  

To create the bg, where the squares and rectangle are on the example, I used acrylic stamping blocks smooshed in watered Distress Inks, making blocks of color one at a time.  The bunny image, RI#2605-P "Ode to Spring", was stamped on white cs and colored with Copics before being die cut with an oval die.  I fussy cut the letters from the "9800 Happy" set to use as the dots around the focal image.  I stamped only the word "springtime" from RI#1304-J "Beauty of Springtime".  I also did some ghost stamping with RI #10205-E "Flower Cluster Outline" against the left hand panels of color.    

Now check out these awesome creations using this sketch
