Hello Everyone..
I really really liked the look of the Sugar Bowl sketch this week, which is a sketch by Marlene; with a 'Please Include' of buttons, so I thought I would give it a go. Now its quite late and my mums camera doesn't work very well at night, especially when she does nothing but use it all day.. by the end of the night I think it gets quite tired. So my pictures are a bit dark, and my buttons look red.. but really they are dark pink.

So here it is..

and my image close-up..

Card Recipe:
Image: ' Gorjuss Sitting'coloured with distress inks, then white gel pen on some bits for a shadow. Distress ink colours:
Tattered Rose for Skin
Worn Lipstick for Dress
Frayed Burlap for Hair
Worn Lipstick and Mustard Seed for Tights
Mustard Seed for little flower in her hair.
Papers: Pink cloudy stuff from my stash (well my Grannys!) for the very back bit
Empress Cream from the Porcelain pack for the next bit
Some pink and yellow bazzil CS from my stash for mounting
Yellow CS from my stash ran through the bug with 'Swiss Dots' for the strip down the middle
'Bumble bee daydream' CS (doodlebug) for the 3 little strips at the bottom.
Embellishments: The flowers and buttons used are from my stash (well Grannys!).

I hope you like it, Please leave comments if you have enough time.
