The Sugar Bowl - Challenge #1


I think a lot of you know already!!! but if you have'nt heard! there is now a fantastic challenge blog for lovers of the Sugar Nellie stamp range :0)

Aptly named The Sugar Bowl, there will be challenges and projects to take part in every 2 weeks.

The 1st challenge is a wonderful sketch by Tiets and here is my take on it :)

I have used one of the new Leanne Ellis range, I love this stamp! I was inspired by some artwork I saw on Leanne's blog, so I stamped the image in brown ink on Kraft card and coloured using my prisma's just in brown and pink! I wanted to go for a vintage aged look. To finish I added some little gems and a felt and paper flower embellishment.

All the papers are from a Costco pack and the friendship sentiment is from a Cosmo Cricket kit.

Thanks for looking x
