Sugar Bowl Challenge

>> Friday, 28 August 2009

It’s AGES since I’ve entered a card in the Sugar Bowl Challenge but the sketch seemed to re-start my mojo which was a huge relief!

I’ve been itching to used my new MME papers and they all coordinate so beautifully they’re perfect when you’re using lots of layers.  I’ve coloured this gorgeous SN Fragile Beauty image with distress inks and then used Antique Linen and Brushed Cordroy to sponge the background and edges.  All the papers have been distressed with Brushed Cordroy too.  The butterfly is a Quickutz die which I cut 3 times (card, velum and DP) to give it some dimension and then added a snip of Prima Say it with Crystals.  I’ve tried to show the dimension of the butterfly in this picture.

Gorgeous card & blog, love your butterfly. I know what you mean about mojo. I took my daughter to paint a pot the other day, I just sat looking at a blank plate for about half an hour, then ended up just doing spotty!!! It looks to me though that all your creations are beautiful.
Love Fleur xXx
