Fab'n'Funky Challenge #40 & The Sugar Bowl Sweetie Search....

Well....I'm back with my DT card!
This week at Fab'n'Funky we have a beautiful photograph that we would like you to take inspiration from when making your project. You can see the photo and enter the challenge here.
I am also entering my card into the Sugar Bowl Sweetie Search.
I have used the sketch from the DT call. I have been collecting Sugar Nellie stamps since they first began a few years ago, and now have over a hundred...I love them to I guess you could say I'm a bit of a sugar!
I have been in two minds if I should enter or not, as I know I am up against stiff competition. There is some real talent out there. But I thought 'what the heck!'....give it a shot. Nothing to lose! Just in the nick of time too, the call ends in less than 2 days.
More of my Sugar Nellie creations can be found here.
This gorgeous stamp is called ''Wild Rose'' by Leanne Ellis, and is available here.
I stamped her with Memento Rich Cocoa, and coloured her with promakers. The background was lightly sponged with pigments inks. I find pigment inks easier to sponge as they stay wetter for longer, so you can move them around on the paper a bit more easily.
I HAVE ALSO USED...........
Crfatwork Cards 8x8 elegance card balnk & card candy,
Blueberry Hill papers,
Nestabilities Labels 17,
Martha Stewart butterfly punch & stamp,
EK success Ivy border punch,
Marianne Design flower dies,
Whimsy Ticket Sentiment stamps,
Sizzlits swirl die,
Ribbon & buttons.

Thank you for stopping by blogging friends!

Promise to catch up with you all soon now I am feeling a bit more lively!
