The Sugar Bowl Challenge #8





At first glance of the sketch provided for the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl this week, I thought it was kinda complicated and was slightly overwhelmed. That would mean lots of paper and colours co-ordination and I think I suck at it. But still I love a challenge and finally came up with this card last night.

I used this 'Sweet n Sassy' girl stamp from their Sweet Art Ebony: Honey n Pip collection, pulled together all my scraps, and tried to coordinate with what I have. I inked the edges of the paper with my VersaMagic chalk ink and I love the effects of it! So soft and subtle and sweet and matches my stamped image perfectly! Somehow I suddenly seem to have everything to match the image and that was how I completed my card in a night. Otherwise, I think I would have taken days to complete this card. Also the sentiment and the butterfly image are from Unity Stamp. I had chalked the butterfly instead of coloring in and attached it using dimensionals. Yay! I feel like I am on a roll this week!
