My cyber friend Lesley Croghan is a whiz at starting new challenges - Inspired By All the Little Things has been a feature on her blog for the past few weeks, and she has decided to create it's own blog. The exciting part is that she's invited me to be on the Design Team, along with herself, and two other talented designers - Jeanne Jachna and Tracey McNeely!

We are starting week two of our Shake, Rattle & Roll challenge on the Art Impressions blog. Last Thursday, I shared a tutorial on colouring Easter eggs & making a shaker card (you can see it here), and for today's post, I've put together another one of the bunnies that I coloured up from the newly released Hoppy Easter Set (Sku #4754) :
He's a 4 1/4" square card, and I popped up the bunny with pop dots.
Copics used: C1, C00, R20, R81, BV01, B21, B01, YG03, YG01, YG00, Y15, Y13, Y11
Head on over to the Ai blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has to share - and be sure to link up your creation to the challenge, we want to see your cards that move!

I have a card using one of the newest Ai People sets today, here is Skinny Yet Set (Sku #4672:
I enjoyed colouring her up with my Copics - especially the excercise ball, it was a good chance to practise colouring a sphere. I don't have an overly blended style of colouring, so it's a bit streaky, but I like the effect! Don't forget that our current challenge on the Art Impressions blog is "Shake, Rattle & Roll" - we would love to see your creations with movement.
Copics used: BG18, BG15, BG13, BG11, YG07, YG05, YG03, YG01, YG00, YR18, YR15, YR12, E11, E00, E000, R20, E31, E34, E37

I am playing along with a new challenge on Lesley Croghan's blog, called "Inspired By All The Little Things". She has posted an inspiration photo, which immediately made me think of this floral paper from Teresa Collins. I'm using this week's Mojo Monday sketch:
