Parachute Jump with Sugar Nellie!

I think spring is finally here!  The snow is gone (yay!) and the temp has warmed.  I've seen little bits of green grass poking through so if I dare... I think winter is finally behind us!
I'd also like to welcome my new followers and thank you for taking the time to stop by.
My inspiration card for Sugar Nellie this week is a digital image of a couple of little critters landing in for someone's birthday party.  The digi image is Parachute Jump and you can find it at Funky Kits.
A couple quick notes about the piece... first I coloured the bunny and pup, then dipped a cloth into Copic Colorless Blender, then dabbing it down to lift off some colour and give the image a mottled effect.  After that, I finished colouring the scene and then added the clouds by sponging in some Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass ink over a little cloud template I have.
Tomorrow is the launch and competition of/for the new Gorjuss stamps.
Be sure to stop by the Sugar Nellie blog often because every day one of the gals on the DT features a  new project.  Also, don't forget to enter the Anything Goes challenge at the Sugar Bowl (remember to use a Funky Kits image) and there's always always plenty of inspiration and chatting on the Sugar Nellie Facebook Fan Page
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!Copics:
So sorry but I forgot to jot down the colours.  The bunny is shades of Copic E's and the pup is C's

Only last night I was thinking about trying out the technique you used for the fur and now I really am going to have to give it a go since it looks so fab!
Your little scene is so sweet with the die cut sun and clouds and your inked cloud background is brilliant :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
