Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 67

It's time for a new challenge over on the Sugar Bowl. The sketch for this challenge has been provided by the very talented and very lovely Sweetie Erika with the optional theme of 'use scraps'. This was a nice and easy sketch to follow, quite a simple one which you can really go to town with and dress it up, or keep it simple...guess which one I opted for huh? And the theme of 'scraps' is perfect as I'm sure we all have those little scrappy bits of paper that we keep..just in case! Well, now's the time to use some of them up.

Fear not crafters...the Copics have been evicted and I'm back in my happy, snuggly colouring comfort zone.


Oh yes, it's official. I am in love with the new Jingle Bells and Tinkle Bells range of stamps and I couldn't wait to get another one inked up. This little sweetie is called Crystal Flakes. She's been coloured with a mix of DI's and SU refills (if anyone out there has a stash of the SU ink refills that they no longer use I'd be very happy to buy them off you) Her wings are slathered with Glamour Dust and the trim on her jacket and skirt is covered with some really old white glitter, not that you can see it but maybe if you enlarge the photo it might be a little more obvious.
My scraps of paper are Echo Park Wintertime and I did manage to use up quite a lot of the odds and ends, but then I was so sad to see these papers go that I had to buy another pack of them :)
A few pearls, CWC sentiment and a flower made up of a Prima white flower which I dipped the edges of the petals in Diamond Dust then added a small red poinsettia on top held together with a pearl brad.


Does a sideways view show the glitter any better? Nope!


The prize for one lucky winner is a choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie stamps, but if there are 100+ entries then the prize will increase to any 6 Sugar Nellie stamps. 
For all the details on how to enter please visit the Sugar Bowl blog, where you will also find lots of gorgeous cards for inspiration from the other sweeties.



Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xxx

  10. Well if I squint my eyes and turn my head sideways I can at least imagine the glitter! Those are beautiful papers and you may not like the copics but that is okay cause your DI inks are gorgeous! Beautiful contrast with all of your coloring as always.

  11. Evicting Copics & buying another pad to replace your scraps had me chuckling twice over. Love what you have done with that flower - very effective, especially the way it picks up on the furry trim of the image.
