The Sugar Bowl


This is my entry into this weeks Sugar Bowl Challenge. which is Spring or Easter.


I have used my new SN, Demure stamp for the card. This is the first time I have coloured with Distress Re-Inkers and H20's, and OMG, I just love it. Not sure if I've got it right, probably need a bit more practice but am happy with it. Am already working on my next card with the same technique.


The papers are BG and Prima. Used the "Daisy" Martha Stewart Punch, Prima flowers and rest is from stash. I've gone around the edge of the watercolour paper with a Gold Encore Ink Pad and coloured the sentiment with a Promarker in Satin. I just love the ribbonwire which comes in lots of different colourways, think its from Ribbonbox.
Have a lovely week, very spring like here this morning,lets hope it stays!

Been behind with my blog hopping, hope to catch up over the next few days...
