Sugar Bowl 8 - A Sketch Challenge

Welcome to week 8 of the Sugar Bowl. This week we have another fabulous sketch by Tiets. She is the Queen of sketches!! For this one I've gone all vintage!! This is what the SugarBowl says:

Challenge 8 - Tiets Sketch #2

I think most of us love the challenge of a sketch, and it's great to see the different interpretations, which really show your own individual style!

So for this challenge, we would like to see your creations, using this fantastic sketch by
As always, you must include a Sugar Nellie stamp.
You may rotate, re size or elongate the sketch, you can even make something other than a card, all that we ask is that we can see that the item has followed the sketch.

I've has some gorgeous 7 Gypsies papers for ages and have finally cut into them! It was really hard getting the colour on my Gorjuss girl to match the papers. I ended up with a blend of brown , pumpkin and deep red. It is as close as I could manage. That is the one downfall with my prismas..sometimes I can't get the deep earthy tones I want in my colouring. I might just save and get some copics one of these days!

A simple inside to carry the theme through.

Go and check out the other takes on the sketch by the other 'Sweeties'...just gorgeous!

Thanks for looking and thank you for all your wonderfully encouraging comments. they are much appreciated.
