Sugar Bowl 28 - Marlene's sketch!

It's Thursday and that means it is time for another Sugar Bowl Challenge! This week we are working from a fabby sketch courtesy of Marlene.

And if you choose to accept this challenge one lucky person will receive the new set of Manga's which as I type not even the DT have received yet!! So brand spanking new!!!

Now this sketch had me stumped for a while , I wasn't sure which direction to take it. then I had a brainwave and decided I wanted to use the portraits of 4 of the Elisabeth Bell images! Bingo!! Now if you go and check out the samples on the Sugar Bowl you will see I wasn't the only one who was thinking along these lines! LOL!!

So for my images I use Demure, Windswept, Daisy and Dolly and Peek a Bunny. I just inked up the top part of the image and then they are coloured with prisma pencils with copics for hair and skin.

The papers I have used are Fancy Pants 'Fancy-Free' Collection and for the border I used the Deep Edged Lace Martha Stewart Punch.

I had real fun making this card and am delighted at how it turned out from what was in my head to paper! Doesn't always work like that does it???

Thanks for stopping by today!
