Challenge 44 - Lilians Sketch - Sugar Bowl

Here is my entry for this weeks challenge over at "The Sugar Bowl".  It is a lovely sketch by Lilian.

After sorting through all my Sugar Nellie stamps I decided to ink up the Manga Princess to make this card as it had never been used before and I do think she is sweet.  The card blank I have used is an Ivory one that has been distressed around the edges with the Spun Sugar Distress Ink Pad.  My papers are the free ones from Creative Card Making Issue 17 designed by Craftwork cards.

I have coloured the image with promarkers in the following colours, Skin & Hair in Sandstone and Blush, Headdress and Dress in Ruby and Rose Pink.  The distressing around the image has been done using the Spun Sugar Distress Ink Pad.  If  you would like to buy this stamp it can be found here.

The greeting is one Craftwork Cards and has been mounted onto pink stardream card after being cut using one of the small Petite oval circle nestabilities.

The pearls are by Mark Richards crystal stickers in 3mm Rouge and are curled freehand as they come in long strips (5 to a packet) and can be purchased from most craft shops.

Once again the flower is one of my own hand made flowers and you can find the tutorial on my side bar if you would like to make your own   The foliage has been punched using cream stardream card which goes well with the card.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and for any comments you may like to leave.

Happy Crafting
