Truly Scrumptious

Wow, i was just looking at some challenges for a sketch, when i came across this weeks Truly Scrumptious challenge. I really love this layout, and i'll definatly use it again. Thanks girls! For the chance to win some fabulous Alota stamps, you must also include some bling...well, i don't know if you can tell but there's a tiny blue gem stuck to her haidband- hope this counts! :O)
I decided to do something a bit different, and i figured a new home card would suit. I dug out some loose BG papers as i love the colour and design.

I made a slight bo-bo when colouring, and smuged some red ink. So i thought i could salvage it by cutting it out and raiseing it from some co-ordinations cardstock with foam pads.

Here's a close-up!

I just love these roses and PM flowers, they look lovely together.


Paper: BG Offbeat,

Cardstock: Co-Ordinations

Image: Sugar Nellie.

Colouring materials: Whispers, promarkers, watercolour pencils and sakuras.

Ink: Brilliance-crimson, and Stazon-jet black

Embellishments: PM flowers, brads and buttons, string, gem and roses from stash.

Sentiments: PM clear stamp, and computer genirated

Well, thankyou for stopping by, any comments will be greatly appreciated!
