A Spring Thank You!

Hello to all.  I am back with an update on my cute freehand Easter bunny sketch. 
 I finished colouring his fur and added some further depth and dimension to his head and ears.
This project has been so much fun and I have enjoyed creating this illustration/artwork.


Bertram Bunny is the main focus for the card.  This is an Easter specific project but would be useful for a general 'Thank You' card.

Materials list:
Freehand sketch with graphite and Polychromos pencil
Coredinations card and designer papers
Stamped tag, distress inks, flowers, gems and burlap ribbon from my stash.
Wood grain embossing folder detail applied with Tim Holtz texture hammer.





A picture of Bertram as a work in progress.  
A light sketch was drawn to place his features and outline shape in graphite pencil.   
The infill continues with Polychromos pencils to create fur detail and depth and shade!
