The Sugar Bowl's first challenge

I had to have a go at the Sugar Bowl's first challenge using this 'Sweet and Sassy' Sugar Nellie Sweet Ebony Stamp. Their first challenge is an incredible sketch by Teits - Thanks Teits it was a real pleasure to work with all those layers. I also found that the sketch needed hardly any embellishment at all so I kept mine to simply a few pearl beads and a small bow. I'm looking forward to more of Teits' sketches - I think she has a flair for them.

The DT for this new challenge have made some tremendous cards for the launch challenge. Well done to you all. And the prize is an absolutely amazing 3 sets of promarkers! Wow! How generous is that? Just make sure you read all the 'sweet rules' if you are entering this challenge. They have posted them on the blog.

I've kept up my bargain with myself and decorated the inside again.

Items Used
Sugar Nellie Sweet Ebony 'Sweet and Sassy' stamp
Papers are a mix of DCWV Pocket Full of Posies and Dovecraft Abstract prints
Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink
Watercolour pencils
Pearl beads, suede bow, Peel off, Brown matting and brown thread from my stash.
