The Sugar Bowl Challenge #117 - Anything Goes

Hello sugar peeps,the Sugar Bowl Challenge is back ---- yipee!!!

It's so good to have it back along with some old and some new Design Team members. I can't wait to see all their fabulous makes. Anyhoo, back The Sugar Bowl challenge, the theme is Anything Goes. So grab your Sugar Nellie stamp and get going.

Just a little reminder  --- if you decide to enter the Sugar Bowl challenge you can make anything you like but you MUST use a stamp from the Sugar Nellie store. Both digital (instant download) and rubber stamps are available to buy from Funkykits.

For my make this month it's all about the boys - Best Buds in fact.  I rarely make a boy's card so it was a bit of a challenge, but I decided it would be best to make it CAS. So here it is ---


Here's What I Did
The 6" x 6"cream card base was matted with pattered paper first. I then die cut out 2 squares and my friend frame from my card stock. Using CraftArtist 2 I resized my image and added the words 'Best Buds' down the side and printed off the topper.  I die cut this to fit my frame and coloured it in with Copic markers. To finish I added a die cut star and button..

Here's everything I used:
Digi Stamp 'Best Buds' by Diane Duda from Sugar Nellie @ Funkykits

Copic Pens: Skin - E0000, E000, E00, E11 / Freckles - E02 / Hair - YR0000, YR000, YR00, E13, E37, E99 / T-Shirt  (Brown) - E31, E33, E35, E37, E79 / T-Shirt (Striped) - YG00, YG03, YG06, YG67, E0000, E00 / Eyes - BG01, BG10, BGXX / Frog- YG00, YG03, YG67 / Background - BG10, BG10, 0
