Sugar Bowl Challenge 122 - February 2015

Good Morning My Sugary Friends!

Well it's another cold and wintery day here. Where did spring go to? Did I blink and miss it along with summer and autumn?  Anyhoo, to cheer myself up and spread a little 'love' I thought I would share a little sugary sweetness with you. So here's my (Sugar Nellie) Sugar Bowl Challenge Design Team card for you today. The theme as always is Anything Goes.

For my card this month I decided to use one of the very first images I ever used for a Sugar Bowl Design Team card, it's called 'Carnival Balloon' and she's available as a digital image and in grey rubber and you can buy her from Funkykits here. Isn't she pretty - I coloured her with my Copic Pens, and included a quote from a beautiful poem from EE Cummings in my design.

Here's What I Did
I used an 7" x 7" white card base and matted it with both lemon and pink card. I used CraftArtist2 to created my layout which I printed directly onto some colouring/blending card stock. The image, border and text were then die cut into a square, and tiny hearts were then randomly die cut into the square so the background card would be visible underneath. The die cut hearts (waste) were then coloured yellow and sprinkled with glitter for later use as embellishments.  I coloured the image with Copic markers and added glitter to the hearts on her dress, shoes and balloon. I added foam tape to the back of the topper and added it to my card base. To finish off I added some of the yellow heart embellishments and a few gems in her hair.
