Sugar Bowl 24


I've made this card for our neighbour's little girl's 2nd birthday, following the fab sketch at The Sugar Bowl, where you also had to include zig zags.

I've used the lovely Sugar Nellie 'splashing maggie' stamp, coloured with promarkers with a chalked sky background. Then I've gone over all of the bits that should be shiny - wellies, umbrella, raincoat, puddles - with an embossing pen and clear embossing powder, so that they're raised and shiny. I've not tried this before, and I'm not sure if you can really tell from the pics, but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. The papers are Dream Street, the cardstock is bazzill (pink) and coredinations (blue). I've used nestie labels to cut out the image (and snapped one of my big shot plates in the process, oops!), then added some white ric rac ribbon for my zig zags and some little pink rainbow drops to finish.

This is smashing. I love the image and the background papers are so bright and cheery that it makes you want it to rain and splash about in.

Lovely card, Lisa. It's a shame you can't see the embossing on the photos but I'm sure it's great in real life.
