Hello friends, what a glorious day! How beautiful is the weather! I've received some lovely award recently that I haven't yet posted but shall do tomorrow, sorry for the lateness of that for those that have given them, I really appreicate them and that you thought of me.
Onto the card! It's Sugar Bowl time again....my fave! I've used my Leanne Ellis stamp that I won but haven't inked up yet as I was waiting to find some papers I liked for her, which I did yesterday. I'm really happy how it's turned out, I absolutely love this style and this little lady just sums it all up perfectly I think. The please include option was 'kraft' actual or colour so I've gone with colour since I don't have any. I think Lilian's sketch is fab, and the prize you can win is the set 3 of the gorjuss girls so you should definetly enter. They always give the best prizes over there:) I used quite a few Tim Holtz products, I coloured with distress inks and I also used a Tim Holtz Mask which is how I achieved the clock and cog-the ink colour I used was black soot (sponged). I would really recommend the masks if you fancy something different-they are big enough to use on your scrapbook pages too:) Here's the full list of what I used:
Materials: SugarNellie stamp (Leanne Ellis) coloured with Distress inks (brushed corduroy, walnut stain, pine needles, black soot, tattered rose, peeled paint). K and Co paper, core'dinations card, PM paper regency, cuttlebug with nesties and embossing folder, raffia, buttons from stash, prima flowers, tim holtz mask with distress ink black soot for the cog and clock.
Thanks for stopping by and any comments you might leave for me-they make my day!
P.S Lelia asked how I achieve the 'highlights' around the cardstock edges-all I do is use core'dinations card which I sand around the edges and then distress using a Tim Holtz distressing tool-then thats the effect! Hope that helps!
