A Spoon Full of Sugar...................

Hello,

Hope everyone is ok. Today I have a card for the challenge A Spoon Full of Sugar . This week it is a sketch by the fabulously talented Nikki. I have loved working with this Nikki so thank you so much. I have coloured my image with distress inks. I have distressed my background with dried marigold, spiced marmalade, and mustard seed. My flowers I have sprayed with gold glimmer mist. For the spacers in the centre of the flowers I have used gold alcohol ink as the spacers were silver and I wanted to match the gold star.


I have been given this award from the sweet Gisela and the lovely Mandi. Thank you so much girls you are so very kind to think of me.



Thank you so much for looking.

love kim xxx
