Sugarbowl Challenge - 1

The first week of the new Sugar Bowl Challenge starts with a wonderful sketch by Tiets.
I use the new Basic Grey Bittersweet papers and the new image by Leanne Ellis - Choose. I wasn't sure about these new images when I first saw them but the more I looked, the more I liked. I only sent for one of them but the others are now on my evergrowing wish list, as I found it delightful to work with. I couldn't make my mind up which media to choose and ended up useing a mixture of Copics, Prismas and watercolours - indecisive - what me? The flowers brad and sentiment stamp are from stash.


I haven't actually decorated the inside of this card yet - my Mojo deserted me on this one.
I think I managed to decorate the insides of roughly 50% last year - so far this year it's 100% minus one, but I am determined to do this one as soon as Mojo returns.

Materials:
Papers - Basic Grey - Bittersweet
Stamp - Sugar Nellie - Leanne Ellis - Choose

Wow again Heather - just gorgeous. I felt the same about these stamps but they grow on you and they are so different - very stylized and very classy.
