A Spoon Full Of Sugar Challenge

New week, new challenge and this time it's a recipe!!!

3- 2- 1

Take 1 Sugar Nellie stamp
3 brads/buttons
2 patterned papers
1 bloom

I tried to be a bit different this week and use my watercolour pencils, a bit more practise or back to the prismas I think!!! Her hat and her dungarees were coloured using the same pencil but seemed to have come out two different colours??? Anyway I've use pink paislee papers and prima papers for the two patterned papers. For the strip across the middle I used cardstock and then embossed it with a cuttlebug embossing folder. The sentiment is a rub on and is from Bo Bunny. And to finish off the recipe I've used 3 flower brads and a bloom. The bottom left corner looked a little bare so I added a narrow piece of ribbon to the image with a little basket of tulips charm to hang down.

Papers: Pink Paislee & Prima
Stamps:- Sweet Ebony- picking apples
Cuttlebug embossing folder:- stylized flowers
Sentiment:- Bo Bunny rub on

There is a chance to win a stamp this week too. And it's the one I have used on my card "Pickin Apples". All you have to do is leave a comment on the blog with a link to your work and Deb will randomly pick a winner. Please go and have a look at the DT work on the blog , stunning as usual and I'm sure they will give you some inspiration to make your own "recipe" card.

The watercolouring looks great Shary, it is difficult isn't it to get the same colour with watercolours though. I love the embellishments you have used, its a great card again.
