THE SUGAR BOWL CHALLENGE NO. 12




Good morning everyone, hope you are all well! What lousy weather we are having, thought it was supposed to be sunny all weekend. Never mind, all the more reason to be inside crafting! I only have one post today, and this card is for The Sugar Bowl Challenge No. 12 - A Sketch from Lia, with a colour challenge -include blue and green in your design. I have chosen one of Sugar Nellies stamps from the Leanne Ellis Collection called Blossom, and she has been coloured with Sukura Gel Pens. For a little added texture, I have added small paper flowers with green gems to the image, where the stamped flowers were. The image has been cut with a Deckled Edged Rectangle nesty, and layered on pale green card. The backing papers are all from a Basic Grey paper pad called Two Scoops. The card has been finished off with a strip of ribbon, another paper flower with a gem brad, and a few pale blue gems in the top corner, all from my endless craft stash. Thanks for dropping by, and hope you enjoyed your visit. Happy crafting!

Good morning Louise, what a stunning card hunny as are the others you've made since my last visit. I love the papers of them all, and the images have been coloured perfectly as always. The weather is really miserable isn't it? Its not raining this morning but its cold. I am not taking Rocky Bear out till later, he is asleep at the moment so he's not worried. Have a good day hunny speak soon, hugs Linda x
