A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 33

So, how are you all? Not too iced up and freezing I hope! I haven't been crafting much the last couple of nights as the house has been blinkin' freezing and I have spent my time huddled under a blanket on the sofa! But, last night was a little warmer so I had a go at this weeks A Spoon Full of Sugar challange which features a sketch by one of my favourite blogging buddies, Nikki.

I started off by layering some brown Bazzill card onto my square card blank. I then took some funky orange paper from the gorgeous Basic Grey Offbeat series and inked the edges with brown ink. I'm pleased to report that I am having far greater inking success since I decided to sponge the ink on rather than attack the item directly with my ink pad! The fabby image is from The Greetings Farm (formerly known as Pink Poison) and is one of their new digital stamps. I coloured Anya with a mixture of Promarkers and Copics, cut her out and added her to a panel of white card with 3D pads (not that you can see it from this pic!). I coloured some flowers with Promarkers and added twill-tied buttons to their centres. I finished the whole thing off with a MFT sentiment and some fab ribbon which came off the box of a Caffitiere that I got for Christmas!

Hope you like my offering, I might try to get a better picture tonight when I get in from work! Thanks for a great sketch Nikki!

Love this Stacey. Glad to here you can combine Copics and Promarkers.I started with a few Copics but want to buy a set of Promarkers as I think they are better value for money from what others have said.
