Being Thankful in the Sugar Bowl
This is my entry for the sugar bowl....In all honesty when I saw the sketch for this fortnights sugarbowl challenge, I wanted to run screaming in the opposite direction!!! I don't know why I never seem to get on too well with sketches, when I make a card it normally evolves as I make it, and I can find sketches a little restrictive, However I just Love sugar nellie..they are my all time favourite company for stamp designs, I am also lucky enough to live close enough to pop into the house of sugar from time to time.....so for all those reasons I decided rather than pick and choose what challenges I like and don't like, I would actually challenge myself with something I don't feel comfortable with!............I am not sure about the results, but hey ho I gave it a go!
I have chosen a fab Leanne Ellis design, it is an old one, but one I reach for time and time again! (I know there are some new Leanne Ellis designs in the pipeline!!...cant wait!!!!!) I have coloured it with my copics.
As I mentioned I was nervous about the sketch, partly because it just had so many layers, so I have limited myself to one sheet of paper and some white card, so that I would not get myself too tied in knots about getting all the layers looking right together. the paper is "Magenta - Artful Flowers"...all the edges have been inked with "Distress ink - shabby shutters"
Finally I have made some flowers, using "Tim Holtz - tattered florals" and an "x-cut" flower punch, and I have added a few gems, which have also been coloured with copics to colour coordinate.
Well, I think I have waffled on far to much now...this is my entry for:
Sugar Bowl - Sketch
Craftalicious Challenges - Anything Goes
ABC - F is for flowers
