My 1st Sugar Nellie Sweetie DT Challenge #107

Well here it is, my first ever DT post.  

This sweetie is for Sugar Nellie's Sugar Bowl Challenge 107 - September 2013.  Hope you like it!

I've never made a tag before so I though hey-ho why not give it a go (OMG that rhymed). I made the tag myself, basically it's a rectangular piece of white card with a shaped top made by using a spellbinder die. The background was made with distressing inks, stamped flowers and words with a splash of glitter. It's hard to see but the stamped flower petals have had their colour removed - just by using a damp brush and a piece of kitchen roll.   I printed this gorgeous girl out 4 times, then coloured certain section of her in with Copics and Prisma pencils, and cut out them out and layered her up.  The doily edge was made with an XCut border punch that I only bought the other day - it's so dainty and pretty.

Here's what I used:
Digi stamp: Carnival Balloon by Krista Smith from Funkykits
Copics: Skin - E0000, E000, E00, E01, E13, R20 / Hair - YR0000, E000, E13, E99, E37 / Purple Skirt & Socks - BV000, BV00, BV02, BV04, BV25 / Pink Dress - RV000,/ RV00, RV13, RV34, RV69 / Shoes/Belt - YR0000, YR000, YR00, E13 /Eyes - RV0000, RV00, RV13 / Flowers - RV000, RV00, RV13 / Balloons - RV000, RV00, RV02, RV13, RV34, BV000, BV00, BV02, RV04
Distressing Ink: Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick, Tumbled Glass
Background Stamp: My Minds Eye 'Tangerine 'Hello'
Border Punch: Xcut (don't know the name)
Die: Crafts-Too Frame 6
OtherCrystal Glitter, Ribbon (bought by my sweet daughter who paid a fortune for it in a London store), Gems, Buttons, Bakers twine

Why not visit the The Sugar Bowl and have a look at what the rest of my DT buddies have created, and why not join in with the challenge. It's open to everyone and the theme is 'Anything Goes' so why not give it a go. You can create anything you like but it MUST include a SUGAR NELLIE STAMP (either rubber or digi) otherwise it will be removed (sorry!).  Rubber stamps can be bought from Funkykits (UK) or Sugar Nellie (USA), digi stamps can be bought from either.

The prize for one lucky winner picked at random is 4 Sugar Nellie stamps from FunkyKits or 6 if there's more than 100 entries.

So come on 'you've got to be in to win it' - so get entering.

Hugs and Happy Crafting.
