Critter Challenge - Coat of Many Colors

It's time for another Critter Sketch Challenge!  You have until April 30th to enter your submission on the Critter Challenge Blog for your chance to win a prize provided by this month's sponsor My Scrapbook Supplies.  This weeks sketch is included at the bottom of my post, the twist this week, add buttons to your card.

My coat of many colors that my mamma made for me, made only from rags, but I wore it so proudly.

I thought it might be fun to Paper Piece the White Rabbits coat from the Wonderland Collage plate from Artistic Outpost with some fun colored papers from Basic Grey's Lime Rickey collection.  The paper I picked reminded me of a patchwork coat.  I added some coloring to the image using the Marker Watercoloring Technique.  The backround is a piece of recycled cardboard sprtized with Smooch Inks, then Distressed with the new Zutter Distrezz-it-All.  I just LOVE this tool!
