Sugar Bowl #47


The really great sketch for the challenge from The Sugar Bowl has been created by Maria Therese and there's an extra of "Ribbons and Bows".

I've coloured this cute Sugar Nellie Snowman (oldie but goodie IMO) with Promarkers and Sakura pens. I then masked him off and the background was created with Promarkers and the new spray tool from Stampin Up - it works really well and I was very pleased with the result. The foliage behind is a Penny Black stamp and I've used Ranger ink. The papers are from MME and Basic Grey. I used ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons over the Martha Stewart punched border. I cut the snowflake and sentiment with my Slice and a large Dovecraft brad finishes off the snowflake.

Thanks for looking.
