Bohemian Sassy in Sweet Rhapsody

Finally Edited 28 Mar - see HERE for enlargeable photos 

EDITED a second time 27 Mar - I changed my camera settings without realizing that it might affect the possibility of clicking & enlarging photos - I'll have another fiddle with it tomorrow - 28 Mar.

When I came to linking, The Sugar Bowl collection had already closed. We'd been without email & internet for the best part of 24 hours & though we have it back it remains at snail or tortoise speed so posting is a somewhat tortuous process especailly if it involves linking & photography.

I have used the sketch provided by Erika for the Sugar Bowl Challenge 55 & taken my colours from the March Simply Create Mood Board Challenge.

Stamp Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy High School Student.
Inks Memento Tuxedo Black (image); Bundled Sage & Victorian Velvet Distress Inks (for inking most cardstock & paper edges).
Colouring Derwent Artists Pencils with paper stumps & Sansodor, Sakura Stardust Pen, Inkssentials White Opaque Pen.
Cardstock An assortment of pinks & greens in various textures & finishes plus blue-grey Moondust from stash.
Papers K&Co Brenda Walton Madeline
Punches, Dies etc... Woodware (circles & scalloped circles), Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Swiss Dots).
The pink flower & the pink doily diecut were in my candy from Debbi whereas the button is Woodware & the metallic thread is from stash.

The Sugar Bowl Challenge 55 - Erika's Sketch + optional theme: Spring! (Spring colours & the sense of starting new things - in this case the start of a new Semester at High School or University)

Awww, what a shame you missed the deadline Paula :(

I think its a fabulous take on the sketch, really unusual how you have used the thread to form part of the sketch pattern.

Cute SN image, and very funky colours.

I love Brenda Walton papers (will have to dig some out!) and the inside is brilliant!

glad to have you back :)

Love how you've interpreted the mood board Paula. That image does look a bit bohemian with her green glasses. Thanks for joining us at Simply Create.
