Sugar Bowl #17 My Sketch!

Good Morning!! Today is the next instalment of the Sugar Bowl!! This week it is my sketch and the extra option is DIY flowers. Before we go any further, let me just get it out the way, I FORGOT the extra option!!! Sorry!! My fellow 'sweeties' have all produced some fabulous DIY flowers, so I am bottom of the class this week :)
My card today uses the stunning 'Windswept' by Sugar Nellie. She was initially coloured with prismas and then I wanted some extra depth to the colouring so I used my copics to do this. Not a great idea. The finish after using pencils is quite waxy, so the copics do not sit well on top. Lesson learned!! I have popped the image on foam squares for dimension.
The papers are all Cosmo Cricket and have all been inked on the edges and the layers have been stitched together. The sentiment is a rub-on.
Sorry I have not been visiting many blogs this week. Our Holiday Club has been going well... ..around 70 kids each day. I am responsible for the little ones and by the end of the day I'm pooped! Next week my house and life will be back in some sort of routine.........hopefully!
Thanks for stopping by !
Hugs Judy x

Jo (Boots the Monkey) said...

Hehehe I am a great one for adding options and then not adding them to my own card - I did that in my CC card a couple of weeks back and had to suddenly produce a heart and make it look like it had always been there !!!

Your card is stunning and the papers are scrummy aren't they. Mine are still being stroked !

Thank you for your help the other day and I'm sorry I have not replied to you. You will be pleased to know you do not have to be my personal shopper !! Thank's for the offer - you are so kind. I will reply to you email though !

Huge hugs,

Jo x
