Truly Scrumptious/Spoonful of Sugar


The latest Truly Scrumptious challenge was a sketch and Flower Power. I used a High Hopes image of the cutest rabbit. He was watercoloured and then matted on a large oval cut from my new Nestabilities. These are my first set and I can see I will need more ;0)
The papers are from HOTP. You may be wondering where the "Flower Power" is? Well, it is very subtle with some flower gems and daisies on the strip of paper across the card. Hope that's enough to qualify. The sentiment is also from High Hopes.

The Spoonful of Sugar challenge this week was a fabulous sketch. It also gave me the chance to ink up one of my newest SN images, Rory. The papers are HOTP and some co-ordinating Bazzill CS. I punched the flowers from the same papers using my small Retro Flower punch and placed a black brad in the middle of each. I added some Zoomz along the top and then some dots of Stickles in accordance with the sketch. Rory is watercoloured using my Derwent Inktense pencils. I rounded the corners of the image and mounted him on foam pads.
