Sugar Bowl #11

Good Morning my lovelies! how are you today? Thanks for stopping by and I love it when I have a Sugar Bowl card to share with you.

This week we have a fabulous sketch from Kathy who is a talented card maker and a amazing sketcher to add to that!! The extra option this challenge is to include metal.

This week we have a fantastic prize for you if you join in with us. The prize for this challenge is...a 6 stamp pick and mix! Yes, one lucky winner gets to choose 6 Sugar Nellie stamps from the current catalogue!

For my card today I have taken inspiration from Kim Costello's fantastic article in this month's Craft Stamper mag. If you haven't seen the article she gave a tutorial on colouring a black and white image. I fell in love immediately. I also love to try something new!

I coloured Daisy as I felt there were lots of places to highlight and shade. I added a bit of colour to the flowers. For this I used a fabby new product called Smooch! Which you can get hold o here. It is pearlized ink and comes in bottle that look like nail varnish. Lots of fun to use :) And for the centre of the flowers there is teeny weeny bit of liquid pearls!

The papers I have used are a hodge podge. I raked around to find the monochrome papers I had and made a right mess!
For the metal option I used lots of brads and finally the sentiment is a rub-on.

Mmm.not sure why this photo looks a bit funny. I think it is hard to capture the true colours of these kinds of colours. Anyway bit of a boring inside.

I hope you can find the time to check out the rest of the creations the 'sweeties' have made. Insiration as always!

Thanks for popping by,

Judy xx

July love the colour scheme! I really like the monochrome image. I must say I was tempted to enter this challenge but I have some card orders to make up and send. Friends have been buying lots of cards recently. Several people have suggested using etsy. I noticed you have an etsy shop do you find it in terms of ease of use and sales
