Sugar Nellie - Leanne Ellis and Simply Create Class

Happy Monday to you all!

Hope you all had a great weekend. I had a super day on Saturday down at Simply Create demo-ing prisma pencils and pens! It was a lovely day and it was great to have Kath pop in and say 'Hello'. Now I didn't let her just watch .... she and some of the other ladies had a try at colouring some images themselves and they made a really super job! For some of them it was their first time with pencils and alcohol markers.

Now it wasn't all plain sailing..we had some drama...first of all was the thunder and lightening and them boom a power cut! Now try colouring in the dark! Thankfully it only lasted a few minutes and we were able to carry on :)

Now onto the card. The card today I am showing you is one of the cards we will be making at my next class at Jacqui's on the 14th June @ 7pm. I think there may still be a few spaces left! If you want to re-create this card then phone 01975-564010. I will preview the other card later on in the week.

The card features the stunning image from Sugar Nellie, drawn by Leanne Ellis called 'Tell Me Something'. The image is coloured with prisma pencils and the papers are all MME 'So Sophie' collection. My inspiration for the card has come from the super talented Kathy. I love how she distresses her edges with crackle paint. Just beautiful! The flowers are all made with retro flower punches and the edges painted with 'Picket Fence' Crackle Paint
Thanks for stopping by today. And thank you for all your generous comments on the new Kathy Hare release. Tomorrow the DT will be showing their take on another of the stamps they received!

And just one more thing.... do you love Hero Arts???? Make sure you stop by the Simply Create blog...Jacqui is giving away some super blog candy to celebrate her 1st (shop!) birthday!

Oh this is just stunning Judy, such a pretty image and I love the painted edges technique..... every time I see one of Kathy's cards I think I must try it too!
Sounds like you had great fun demoing and that thunder and lightening made it all the more dramatic!! So now you can add colouring in darkness to your skills.... is there no end to your talents girl, lol?!

I can almost touch the depth in the layers of her dress - love all the muted colours & that flower is a beauty.There's such texture in the different papers & layers too.
