Sugar Bowl - Sketch plus Glitter


Would you believe it if I said this card has been a week on the go, I have managed to do bits in between being a nurse and a comfort blanket for my two poorly little boys. Unfortunately my WOJ Design Team Call is still not finished :-( But good luck to all whom entered.

Wow I have not managed one of these for a while, I keep forgetting it is on - I am useless with fortnightly challenges.

I have washed all the papers in Tea Stain Distressed inks and used a bit on Vintage Photo on the off centre square. The image has been distressed to as a wash and then highlighted and coloured in distressed inks in shades of brown. The lace was stewed in my tea before adding (instead of the sentiment) and I have painted the flowers too before spraying them with glittermist. All papers are KandCo.

I hope you like it, it is lighter in daylight x
