Sugar Sweet Sugar

 A very good crafternoon peeps yip I've  been creating this morning I coloured one of my new Sugar Nellie stamps the other night in bed and was desperate to make it into a card. Over on facebook the lovely Fiona has started up the weekly Sugar Fix challenge for us Sugar Babes :O) Ohhh I do have a Sweet tooth :O) and the challenge was a colour combo of Blue, Green and White.

Here is my interpretation

 I have used the current SUGAR BOWL sketch and rotated it. 
I stamped Fifi Goes Shopping using Memento Ink and coloured using a mixture of Prisma, Polychromos and Caran D'Ache pencils. I added a cloud background using a scrap piece of card cut into a cloud shape and then stencilled using Bashful Blue ink as i felt the background was rather bare and I'm really pleased with the result! Stampin up papers and card from The Papeterie...
the delish ribbon and brads are from SEW SWEET

  • Stamps ~ Fifi Goes Shopping by Sugar Nellie, Oval All Stampin Up
  • Medium ~ Prisma, Polychromos, Caran D'Ache Pencils
  • Papers ~ Stampin Up
  • Ribbon, Brads from Sew Sweet
I'm also entering this into ~ 

ABC ~ Happy Birthday

Still no gems :O( starting to think they make have been mistaken for rubbish and thrown out...going to order more today!

Thanks for stopping by....much appreciated!
