Sugar Bowl - Feb Challenge

Hello All

Well its time for another challenge over at the Sugar Bowl for this month Karen has set us a colour challenge, it has been really interesting to see the DT's interpretation of this picture. Also we have all used a Leanne Ellis image, no hardship for me there, as I LOVE Leanne Ellis images. I have chosen "Tell me something" which you can find here This little sweetie has been coloured with copics & I have teamed it up with some Basic Grey papers, that I have had in my stash forever. I have added a few bits and bobs ... & sprinkled with frantage.

We Have a few changes in the Sugar Bowl. As well as a prize of 4 Sugar Nellie stamps ( 6 if we reach 100 entries ) we also now will be choosing a GDT each month - who will receive a free digi to and we will also be choosing a top 3 ........ so get inking and colouring, cant wait to see what you make and be inspired by your creations!!

A World of Flowers

Hello All,

I keep thinking I will get to a point where I am not apologising for being absent in Blog Land, I am under the illusion that at some point my life will be a little less hectic and I will be able to craft more frequently.

The house is on the home straight ( on the inside at least ) ..... I have not made many cards partly because when I do get a little spare time and head to the loft it is soooo freeeezing I cant quite cope, normally with a little oil heater and a fleece its bearable but with work on the house and the roof being slightly open I was also sitting in a howling gale. I have however been colouring for Britain, its been nice to really have a chance to educate myself ( you tube tutorials ) and try and improve my skills .... I still have a lot to learn, but I am really enjoying challenging myself to try different techniques. Hopefully when I do next head into the loft I will be able to create a big stack of cards with all the lovely coloured images I have acquired.

Anyway .... enough waffling. This card!! Love this image from Saturated Canary I really enjoyed colouring it. ( Think Hubby saw just how much work goes into colouring as he watched me work o this image 4 nights in a row!!) I have used a combo of Copic's and Prisma's.

I have used one sheet of 12x12 paper, ( pretty sure its Bo Bunny ) I used the centre of the paper as the main background ... added a little detail with a few Bo Bunny background stamps. Then I cut out all the flowers from the page, and quite frankly just went mad!! Think it a little OTT, but hopefully it works. I have added a little doodling and higlighted some areas with glossy accents.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Runway Inspired - Dennis Basso Spring 2014
Crafty Creations - Seasonal ( I have chosed Summer )
ABC - Anything goes with colouring
Sister Act  - Anything Goes

As always thanks for looking
