The Sugar Bowl Challenge is celebrating its second birthday with Challenge 50 - a sketch by Marlene with the optional theme of "Embossing" whilst the All Things Sugar Nellie Forum Challenge 33 is to use NEW STASH. I rotated the sketch 90 degrees clockwise & used both dry (the embossed diagonal lines of the main matting panel) & heat embossing (the emboss resist technique where the image is heat embossed then sponged with ink & buffed to a shine). My new stash is the stamp & the Memento Grape Jelly inkpad; I also coloured the image with my new Derwent pencils & used a white card blank (Craft UK Ltd) from an unopened packet that I'd bought at the NEC in November. The colours used are those of the CR84FN10 Challenge.
