Inspiration in the Sugar Bowl


Happy New Year to you and yours!! The Sugar Bowl has kicked off the New Year with it's first Sketch Challenge. I decided to use my very first Leanne Ellis stamp from Sugar Nellie.I stamped the image with StazOn and colored it in with Stampin Up markers and my waterbrush. I hope you'll try your hand at this Sketch Challenge. The prize is awesome! Again, I wish you a very Happy New Year. May it be prosperous, fulfilling, and abundant with creativity, love and special memories.

WOW! I don't know what to say. None of the adjectives seem quite "enough" to describe how amazing this card is. The deep to light blues and golds give this such a rich feel. The image is fantastic.

Ethel, you never cease to WOW me with your work.
