Sugar Nellie ~ Sweet As Candy

Another of my Sugar Nellie creations for you today. 
Sweet as Candy is from the Country Cousins stamp range
I love her!

I have coloured Sweet As Candy with inkpads.
I've been practising my colouring with distress inks and I'm delighted with the effects this time.
I do have a limited number of colours just now but I've also been using my Stampin Up inkpads and I'm loving the results. 

The papers I've used are Cosmo Cricket and swiss dots embossing folder. Basic Grey buttons finished with SU thread. the large paperclip is from my stash. I attacked the edges of the card and papers with my scissors for a distressed look which I actually like. So there we have it.

Thanks for stopping by.....crafty hugs
