It's Thursday and time for the new Sugar Bowl Challenge. This sketch has been done by the gorgeous Sweetie Marlene. It's a beautiful sketch and I really haven't done it justice. The theme for this one is black, white and one other colour, so a nice and easy option too.
I've gone for the additional colour of mint green, but no matter how many photographs I took, and I took a lot of them, the papers still look blue and really washed out. I have to say that the card looks considerably better in real life. I don't know whether it's because by the time I get home from work I'm taking photos when it's dark? I also tried out a different range of inks, like the Tim Holtz re-inkers but a different manufacturer, and I found them much more difficult to blend.
Anyhow, this lovely image is from the Home Grown Country Cousins range and is called Going Places, available to buy HERE. DP is Memory box, punched flowers, a butterfly and a bit of cord.
The prize for the winner of this challenge is a set of Spellbinders classic scalloped Square Nesties AND a sheet of Leanne Ellis 'Alice in Wonderland' stamps. These are as yet unreleased!!!
All the details can be found on the Sugar Bowl Blog and there's always lots of inspiration to be found on all the other Sweeties blogs.
Thank you for all your advice with the linky thing, it's much appreciated. I'll try and get the next candy on tonight if I've time, but failing that it will be the weekend as I'm out all day tomorrow.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xx
