Sugar Bowl 1# 16 - Marlene's sketch

Well howdy do! How are we all?? As I write this we are in Durham on our hols.

Today is another Sugar Bowl challenge and this time the sketch is by Marlene. She has given us a beauty! And this time the extra option is doodling. Now as you will see from all the 'sweeties' entries that some of us are no expert doodlers.....and some of us are! I am definetely of the former variety!!

My card today features a current favourite of mine..'Upside Down' by Diane Duda. She is coloured with prismas and twinkling H2O's and then highlights added with a white ink pen. The sky has been done with H2O's. Then my doodles have been added around the edge of the image.

The papers are all October Afternoon and the flowers have been cut out from a pieces of the patterned paper with a brad added to the middle. The edges have been inked and curled for a bit of definition.

Well I have managed to get online and the hols so far are a bit 'dodge the shower' but we have had a nice time. So far we have explored Durham Cathedral and been to Beamish for the day. What a fab day that was..we didn't get round it all so we are going to go back and take a trip on the trams again! Today is wet wet maybe a bit of indoor action is in order! No pics to show you I'm afraid as I didn't bring my camera cables ...doh!

Thanks for popping by! Hope you are all well!
Catch ya soon,

hugs Judy xx
