The Sugar Bowl Challenge



Marlene has done a fab sketch for The Sugar Bowl Challenge and I couldn't wait to get started. Not done an Easel Card for a while and was itching to get another made.

I just adore this new stamp. Angel Wishes by SN. Stamped onto Neenah Solar White and coloured with Copic markers. Must say a massive thanks for the link to Rach. This paper works a dream and well worth buying. I've distressed around the image with Chalk Ink Pads and added a Clear Spica Pen to the wings. Incorporated the ZigZag with a Martha Stewart Punch and RicRac. Papers are a mix of Imaginesce and Magnolia. The flowers have been sprayed with Glimmer Mists, and Rocky Candy Stickles added but not showing so well in the picture.

If you click on it, you'll get a larger image and may see better. The sentiment is from LOTV. I love the font style on this stamp.
Alot to do today, so will big thanks for stopping by my blog and have a lovely weekend
Many Thanks

Clairexx
