Sugar Nellie

Woohoo, today's the day that I get to be a Guest Designer for Sugar Nellie, and I've got not one, but two cards to share!!!

Even better news is that one of the images I was allowed to play with was from the new release, which just happened to feature some of my favourite characters; Jack, Patch and Puss!

I made a simple card using the image, and typed a sentiment into the banner they were holding.  I coloured the image with my Copics, and tried to create some reflection of light from the birthday candle on the kitty's face.  I created a background of clouds and 'grounded' them with some dusky purple.  Other than a bit of stitching, and some Stickles around the edge, the design was a simple one.

So here's my first card:






My second card features an older image, called Forest Friends.  I've coloured her in pink and green, and kept the colour scheme simple and neutral to focus on the sweet image.  The spotty ribbon is actually a chocolate brown in real life, although it looks almost black in the photo.


Well wasn't that over in a flash!  I've really enjoyed being a Guest Designer for Sugar Nellie. I hope my creations inspire you to pop over to the Funky Kits store where there is a 50% sale on at the moment.  Just be careful you don't do what I did, which is buy a stamp that you already have!  D'oh!  Well, at least it shows I liked it!  ;0)
