The Sugar Bowl Challenge - this was my first Sugar Nellie image...



Hi again ladies...

Well.... can you believe it's me????  This time NO PINK at all!!  Even I'm struggling to believe it's me!  But we all need a change every now and again - so I took the opportunity to go for some different coloured  pens that don't come out very often...

This time the theme at The Sugar Bowl is 'Use your First Sugar Nellie Stamp or Image'.  I'm not totally sure that this is actually the first one I bought... but definitely ONE of the first as I may have bought one or two (or MORE..) at one go..


Card Recipe:
  • Sugar Nellie Manga Fairy
  • Colouring Medium - Copics
  • Stars Embossing Folder from Central Craft Collection
  • Paper - Bo Bunny Ambrosia
  • Square Nestie
  • Ribbon and glitter from stash..
I really enjoyed this colour combo...  and decided she had to have bright red hair...  I think I managed it, don't you??  And as she's sitting... I decided to put the embossed panel behind her... hopefully giving the impression she's sitting on a window frame..

I hope you'll pop over to the challenge blog HERE and join in the fun....  don't forget, you need to use a Sugar Nellie image...  the first you ever had.  You'll also see that the lovely Sweeties have come up with some fabulous inspiration for you...  And, as if you needed more persuasion... you can win one of the best prizes in blogland.... FOUR lovely pieces of Sugar Nellie rubber from Funky Kits....  images of your choice!

So what's stopping you??  Hope you enjoy this fabulous challenge...

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..
