Sugar Bowl Challenge 10

Hi Ladies, I hope you are all well. I'm feeling a bit under the weather today, hay fever has struck!!!

The Sugar Bowl Challenge 10 is a sketch by Marlene with the added option of using buttons.

I have made another card, decorated envelope and gift tag set using my lovely Gorjuss Girls.

For my card I have used the masking technique for the very first time and I think it gives a great effect.

I have coloured the image using distress inks and the papers are from K & Co.

The embossed panel has been done with my d'vine swirl folder and the card I have used is core'dinations gemstones - it has a lovely sheen in real life.

The flowers are primas and the button is from papermania.

I have decorated the inside to compliment the front and unfortunately this is the last of this lovely butterfly paper.....weep....weep.

I only have a few scraps left but they are a bit small to do much with.... might be able to get a tag out of them though!!

This is a closer photo of my tag and envelope.

The tag is just a simple image of the two girls together, finished off with some ribbon and a button. I had to keep it simple as the image is quite large, so if I'd added anymore the tag would have been huge!!!!

Also, I forgot to say earlier..... I have added a little stickles to the hair clips on all of the images for a little sparkle, but it doesn't really show in the photos.

And finally, the last image is a close up!

Card/Paper: White, pink and blue card, K & Co - sparkly sweet, Core'dinations - Gemstones
Stamps: SN Gorjuss Girls - just a girl and sitting
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, vintage photo, walnut stain, worn lipstick, broken china, weathered wood and black soot.
Embellishments: Primas, PM buttons, ribbon, jewel, stickles - waterfall and fruit punch
Tools: Cuttlebug, d'vine swirl folder, water brush

Thanks for looking x
