The Sugar Bowl #12 - Lia's Sketch

I love working from sketches, it means I can concentrate on other aspects of the card rather than the layout. And this sketch from Lia at The Sugar Bowl was fantastic to work with. I love all these layers. The added option was blue and green which I've included.

Image: Poise by Leanne Ellis @ Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers; saffron for skin, blue pearl, cornflower & china blue for hair, sleeves and flowers, moss and olive green for dress, sleeves and stems, pastel blue to outline

the image is mounted onto kraft card and the edges distressed with the Tim Holtz distressing tool

papers are all K&Co Classic K Bailey, distressed and inked edges with papermania inkpads (except kraft paper at back), flower cut from papers using EK Success retro flower punches and embossed. Papermania brad, Kars paper lace ribbon
