The Sugar Bowl Challenge #1

This is a brand new challenge blog called The Sugar Bowl that is starting today. The first challenge is a fabulous sketch by Tiets. The DT have come up with some gorgeous ideas to inspire you, so follow the link to have a look.

There is also a prize this week and it's three sets of Letraset promarkers.....that's 30 pens...

Here is my card that I made following Tiets fabulous sketch. Unfortunatley this is the only stamp I have of Sugar Nellie, so I'll have to keep using this one until I get some more. I have coloured her in using my new promarker pens and added highlights with my white inkssentials pen. The papers I used are a cocktail of Basic Grey, Dovecraft and Papermania. The sentiment has been printed from my pc and then cut out using the smallest nestie. I then chalked round the edges with black to soften it a little. The flowers I made myself by using my cuttlebug asterix dies, then coloured them in using my promarker pens and then embossed them with clear powder. TFL x
