The Sugar Bowl.......................

Hello,

A new challenge is born and I couldn't wait to join in. You are to include a Sugar Nellie stamp on your entry and I have fallen in love with their beautiful stamps. They have fabulously talented Sweeties showing us beautiful examples of their work to give us inspiration. This week we are to follow a sketch by the extremely talented Tiets. My entry for this week's Sugar Bowl is coloured with distress inks (what else!) I have distressed the background with tattered rose and vintage photo. I have stamped my swirls and sentiment with versafine sepia.

Thank you so much for looking.

love
