You Make Me Happy - Sugar Nellie

Today I have a card that I made for the Sugar Bowl Challenge which is to create a card to celebrate Spring or Easter. I tried not to make this card too busy. The only embellie is that wide grosgrain ribbon and I have used some SU rub-ons for the sentiment and some swirls and flowers but they are pretty low key.

I love this new Sugar Nellie image which is named "Windswept". I pulled the colors I used from the papers and after coloring the image, I masked it and airbrushed it with my copic airbrush system. I have started to use 2 colors when I airbrush and I really like the effect it makes. These Suge Nellies are so wonderful to color. I love the windswept creates folds and hair blowing in the wind that is perfect to color!

  • Stamps: Windswept by Sugar Nellies available at Funky Kits
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU Kraft, Whisper White, Crate DP
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: SU rub-ons, PaperTrey Aqua Mist ribbon

That's it for today. I am astonished to see that my hits are almost at 50, 000! I think it is time for some blog candy to celebrate! Stay tuned........
