The Sugar Bowl - #18 - Kathy's Sketch

Afternoon everyone. I really enjoyed this weeks sketch over @ http://sugarbowlblog.blogspot.com/2009/08/challenge-18-kathys-sketch.html
Part of the challenge is to use buttons!

I love this image, Did have a bit of a problem colouring in the gown - First I used twinkling h2o's in vanilla bean, then when I tried to add a little shading under her veil it looked really dirty, so I tried to thin it out and most of the h2o came off in little blobs, so had to try to remove them gently. I think it all worked out ok in the end though!!!

I have used:
Sugar Nellie stamp - Happily ever after,
Paper - Papermania, exquisite collection,
Ribbon - Anita's,
Woodware border punch,
Buttons and silver thread from stash.
Thanks for looking.
Hugs Fleur

Hi Fleur.

Love your card, great image. I have this stamp too, but have not used it yet, naughty, naughty...

I love those soft colours you've chosen, and the colouring looks perfect.
