A Trip Down Sugar Nellie Lane #2

- HELLOOO Sugar Fans...
...and a good morning to you all.
Well it's Wednesday and Sugar Nellie day....and my turn to share my something sugary with you.  So this week I thought I would revisit another of my older projects using one of my favourite Sugar Nellie stamps.
This shaped card is using one of the cutest and prettiest Sugar Nellie digi stamps - it's called 'A Little Bit Of Gossip' available from Funkykits, isn't she gorgeous.

Here's What I Did
I covered a shaped card with my patterned paper and added some distressing ink around the edges. I printed the image directly onto some colouring card stock and coloured it in with my Copic pens, and to add a little bit of sparkle I added a touch of glitter to her wings. To soften the edges of the image and to create a sky I used pan pastel. The finished picture was die cut it into a circle and matted onto 2 complimentary coloured circles.  A die cut border of pink card was added to the base card and the matted image was added on top. I added my own handmade flowers to the card in complimentary coloured card and papers, plus a few die cut leaves.  To finish her off I added a little gem to her hair, some pearls to the flowers plus a cute yellow flower button.
