Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 92

Good Morning :)
I'm back with my card for the Sugar Bowl challenge.

(Our Sugar Mama Gayle is having some technical difficulties...loss of broadband, so the challenge won't be posted until later today when she has been re-connected again)

We have a fabby sketch to follow from Sweetie Erika - thank you Erika, I loved this sketch :)
And this time the optional theme is a colour one "Worn Turquoise".
No Erika, I did not like the theme! DI's aren't the best when it comes to turquoise! But I like to rise to the challenge and at least give it a  try.


I was lucky enough to get Goosey Gander as a rubber stamp in my DT pack almost 2 years ago, and Karen has now made her available as an instant sugar-fix digital image HERE.

As per usual, she's coloured with DI re-inkers and markers.
Skin: Tattered Rose and Tea Dye.
Hair & Shoes: Antique Linen and Walnut Stain.
Turquoise Shades (OK, more blue than turquoise!) Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers.
Beige: Antique Linen..and more Antique Linen!

The papers are MME Stella and Rose - Hattie, the sentiment is from a set by Whimsy and the flutterby's are MFT dies.



As always, there is a prize chosen at random for one lucky winner, their choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie stamps, rising to 6 stamps if we reach 100+ entries.
Please bob on over to the Sugar Bowl to see the fab cards off my Sweetie sisters..but it might be later in the afternoon before Gayle has broadband again and can post the challenge.
Thanks for looking.
Love

  3. Love the way her striped socks give a contrast to the spots on the patterned papers. The butterflies for embellishing are deldightful picking up on the image within the sentiment.

  26. Hi Elaine..

    Oooh what a fabulous image... and coloured so well in what looks like turquoise to me!! Beautiful layout using that fab sketch... I love your card!

    Glad to see that there are more digis becoming available - I'm waiting for Fashionista from the sassy range.. As you know, I tend to use more digis than rubber nowadays! Something about having to open the packet and dig out the stamp pad... lazy aren't I??!!

    Big hugs
