Sugar Bowl Challenge 112 - Colour Theme

Well here's a another first for 2014, my first DT challenge card for The Sugar Bowl. The theme this month is a Colour Theme (See the palette below). Aren't the pretty colours.

Why not join in with us, but don't forget your project MUST include a Sugar Nellie stamp or digi stamp - both are available from Funkykits.  If you're not sure if your stamp IS a Sugar Nellie stamp either sent me a message with it's name/picture or visit the Sugar Bowl website and send an email to Sugar mama using the link there.

Exciting news - things are changing in the Sugar Bowl from February onwards. Each month as well as the usual prize on offer for the selected winner, we will also highlight 3 of our favourite card/projects from the entries. The biggest news is that we will also choose one entry to be our Guest Designer for the following month. So come on what are you wanting for.....get crafting!!!

Your colour Palette

This was a relatively quick card.  The topper was made by stamping 3 times, firstly onto my base cream CS, then twice onto white CS.  I coloured the image on my cream base card, and then coloured the parts on the white CS that I wanted to layer up. I'd added colour around the edge of the frame by firstly adding pencil around the very edge, and then using some Pan Pastel to pull the colour in towards the centre. The parts of the image that I'd coloured and cut out were added to the base card.  I added glitter to finish it off.  I drew a squiggly line and leaves around the edge of the background card and added a little glitter to compliment the topper. To finish off I added some leaves and flowers.

Here's everything I used:
Stamp: Leanne Ellis 'Wild Rose' - Sugar Nellie stamp available from Funkykits
Paper/Cardstock (CS): Hobbycraft 'Monochrome' Paper Pad, Papermill Shimmer Cream CS, Light & Deep Pink and Dark Grey Bazzill CS, Silver Mirra CS  
Pencils: Derwent (D) & Prisma (P), Lyra Polycolour (L) - Face - Colour of CS, (P) Light Peach, Peach, Blush / Rose & Frame Edge - (P) Blush Pink, Poppy Red, Crimson / Hair - (P) Sand, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Ochre, Sienna Brown, (D) Ochre / Dress, Leaves & Hat - (D) Dove Grey, Cloud Blue, Steel Grey, Persian Grey, (L) Black
Dies: Britannia Multi Rose - Small, Die-namic 'Blueprints 3', Tattered Lace 'Embellishments'
Other: Pan Pastels - Permanent Red Tint, Black Fineliner Pen, Glitter

So don't forget to drop by at The Sugar Bowl and have a look at what the rest of my fabulous DT sweeties have created to inspire you; and why not join in with this month's challenge while you're there. It's open to everyone, and the theme is Colour Theme (shown above) so  come on 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!).

Have fun, and I look forward to seeing your creations on my return.
