THE SUGAR BOWL,Challenge 1.......FIRST PLAY WITH COPICS.




Well a new year and a new Challenge.....The Sugar Bowl is a new Challenge Blog especially created to use our much loved Sugar Nellie stamps.Challenge 1 is a sketch by Tiets,and i must say i loved working with it,so thank you Tiets.
It's been awhile coming this card,i somehow couldn't get back into the swing of things,so today i gave myself a great big boot up the backside....something i should have done earlier...lol.
I've had my first play with my Copic's,one of my crafty goodies i had for Christmas off my hubby.I love them,not very good at the moment....need some practice,but hey Rome wasn't built in a day,and it will be fun learning.If anyone as any tips i'm all ears.
For my card i've used the following:-
Sugar Nellie Stamp "Luvvie" by Leanne Ellis,from Funkykits,coloured with Copic Markers.
Paper Basic Grey Sultry,Urban Prairie and Two Scoops....abit of a mixture.
Sentiment stamp by Scrappy Cat.
Flourish stamps by HOTP.
Ribbon,gems,button and string all from stash mountain.

Hi Hun So pleased to see you back have really missed your great cards. And what a lottle beauty you have come back with this is adorable, love the colours you have used. Copics take a bit of getting use to, I think there is a link on Rachs blog for a tutorial, if not e-mail her and ask her if she still has the link helped me a lot. Took me ages to get used to them didn't think I ever would but love them now
Have a wonderful 2009 dear
big Hugs Jacqui x
