Updated to add new pics taken in daylight.
This is my submission to the Sugar Bowl Challenge. I'm finally getting around to inking up my adorable Sugar Nellie stamps. In fact, I scheduled this post much earlier but I either did it wrong or my first draft has disappeared into cyberspace.
I made this card for my BABY's 7th birthday and yes you're probably laughing but I still think of her as my baby. Darn it, time is flying and my girls are growing up waaaaay too fast. Well, she loved the card but mostly the image as she thought it suited her totally because she was of course ~ Princess for the day! Here's a close-up.
The challenge requires following the sketch below, handmade flowers ~ made with punches, dies......as long as they are not Primas ~ and a Sugar Nellie image.
The fabby prize is a full Autumn country cousins set - I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed cause they are so cute. Now if there are 200 participants for this challenge, Sugar Nellie will kindly give away a second set of these gorgeous stamps!
I will come back and update the photo as I took it at night and the lighting is not so great. I used Pink Pirouhette and Old Olive CS by Stampin Up. The beautiful DP was sent to me by my super nice friend Nikki ~ who by the way has an amazing Etsy store with lots of goodies. Check her out here. The bling ~ yes there is lots cause my baby loves the bling! ~ was sent to me by my super sweet buddy Bernie. She sent me an assortment of round, heart and star-shaped adhesive stones in different sizes. They were perfect for the card! My daughter kept ooohing over the jewels and telling big sister "see all the pink jewels on my card" - lol.
Gorjuss girl image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on Wausau paper and then coloured with the following Copics: E000, E01, R20, YR31, RV93, RV95, R81, R83, R85, E31, E31, C3, C5, C7 and C9. This is the third stamped image I coloured and the black hair turned out different each time. I'm certainly practicing the art of colouring black hair. I have found the best tutorial here by Suzanne Dean. Her colouring is amazing and I watch her tutorials over and over and over again.
Also pop-dotted the oval and stamped image for added dimension. This was a difficult sketch for me as I find it difficult to work with more than 2 layers/patterns of DP together. In fact, what took the longest time was selecting the DP for this card. I will definitely use this sketch again. Now I did change the orientation of the oval a bit and I placed the punched flowers a little differently on the card and I hope that's ok.
Thanks for stopping by for a wee peek and for taking the time to leave a comment. It is much appreciated.
