The Sugar Bowl

Look at this gorgeous little Belle, who could resist falling for her? She is one of the download images from Funky Kits. I am entering this one in to this week's Sugar Bowl challenge which is DIY, in other words, choose which of the past sketches you wish to use. I chose Sketch #33.

Belle is coloured with distress inks, I'm having problems with these at the moment - when aren't I having problems with something or other. I'm using a new watercolour pad and finding I'm getting bleeding - it's the same type I normally use so am somewhat clueless as to why this is so. All the papers for this card I've resurrected from  my bit box. Hooray - now there's room for more.
The leaves are Wild Orchid, the flowers Prima and the lace is from my stash. The sentiment is Hero Arts.
Now I'm going to sit in a corner and write 100 lines

"I must not colour my images before I've chosen my paper"

I don't normally but have done it twice this week then spend more time trying match papers than I do making the card.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, doing whatever pleases you the most  -  Crafting by any chance?

She is a cutie Heather and I love the colours you've used too. Well done with matching after colouring - it's something that causes me problems too.

It is lovely, Heather! That image is so cute.

Paula said...

Love your colours & that sentiment is such a brilliant one. I think different batches from the same manufacturer sometimes vary. It's so annoying when that happens. I seem to remember you being quite an influence on my starting to work bottom up & now I can't do it the other way around. I was so touched by your lovely comment - thank you so much.
Have a good weekend too. I'm working on my Sugar Bowl.
