The Sugar Bowl



There is a great new challenge out there called The Sugar Bowl and the 1st challenge is a fab sketch designed by Tiets. I just love this sketch and couldn't wait late last night to get some crafting done. Papers are BG Urban Prairie. I've used my SN and coloured with Promarkers and White Pen, gone around the edge of the image with an Ivory Promarker. All the papers have been distressed around the edge with a Gold Encore Ink Pad. I forgot about my Galaxy Markers that I usually use. Had to think twice when starting to colour as well, but it all came back to me. The Crochet Flower is new, have added some of my gold fabric leaves and have punched 2 flowers with the same BG papers and filled with stickles and liquid pearls.

This is the insert, I've only made 1 or 2 in the past but I think this is going to be a big thing in the crafting world this year and will be making my own from now on. The sentiment is a new Hero Art set and again papers are Urban Prairie.

So nice to be back to my crafting, didn't realise just how much I'd missed it. So many challenges, and so many new stamps, boy, looks like I'm going to be busy!!!
