The Sugar Bowl Challenge 18

Hi all, and happy Saturday.

It's a cold one today, for me anyway, although my hubbie wouldn't agree. If I'm not basking in heat, then I find it cold. I should really be living somewhere warm and sunny, but I don't think there's much chance of that.
Anyway, another challenge. I'm doing well this week, I seem to be getting back into the swing of things again. I'm entering The Sugar Bowl challenge again this week, mainly because I just love the Sugar Nellie stamps. This time I've used one of the Gorjuss Girls (collection three). I've not inked her up until today, and I'm really pleased with the result.

The colours have been kept simple so they don't detract too much from the image. I added a little bit of sparkle to her wings, and the MS punched butterfly. I added the obligatory button, and kept to the sketch as per the challenge. The papers are from My Minds Eye, and Imaginesce. The punched edge was made using the Stampin' Up! Scallop Edge punch, then I chalked the edges to give them a bit more definition.


I bought some new Copic's (fourty to be presise) to add to my ever growing collection. I now have 133 in total, lucky me. I'm loving this colour combination, and will probably use it again, it's a very girly, sugary combo, just me.

Anyway thanks for looking. Bye for now.
