Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 88

Good Morning :)
It's time for a new challenge over on the Sugar Bowl, always my favouritest day!
We have a fab sketch, this time from the Mama herself (Gayle) with an optional theme of Summertime.


And everybody say...awwwwwww.
Ain't she just the sweetest little fairy? So cute and chubbylicious!
I just had to ink up Lil' Sweetpea  because she's sooooo gorgeous :)
As is usual, she's coloured with DI refills and markers. The divine papers where a birthday gift from Sweetie Maria so I have no idea what make they are, but I did sob when I cut them :(
A Doo Hickey swirl, MFT butterflies and a few pearls.
I did think (briefly) of adding some flowers to make it more Summery and in keeping with the theme but I just couldn't cover up the pretty flowers on the papers.

As always, there is a prize chosen at random for one lucky winner, their choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie stamps.

The Sweeties are having their Summer vacations and this challenge will run for a month instead of the usual 2 weeks...plenty of time for you all to join in!
Now pop on over to the Sugar Bowl and you can see the gorgeous cards from all the other Sweeties.

Thanks for looking.
Love

  8. I think this is brilliant without any flowers -the positioning of the papers & swirls make this pefect as it is. Love the vibrancy of the red against the whole soft palette & your colouring of her is quite exquisite & beautifully subtle.
