Week 3 at Sukkersott...

...is a sketch or skisse!! (I am learning Norwegian ~ Bonus!!) (LOL) Anyway it is a beautiful sketch and I just had to try it out!! I had to make an anniversary card and found this cute couple that I was lucky enough to obtain from an image exchange. The colors of the card were based on a stack of pigment inks from Martha Stewart that I picked up at Walmart!! Yeah they was a ton of her stuff there!! I was surprised!! Anyway the stack had blues and greens ~ really pretty ones so I had to grab it! I stamped some flourishes from Stempelglede around the pp with one of the greens. I also stamped a flower image from the same collection with another green and blue. I stamped the whole flower in a lighter color and rock -n- rolled around the edges with a darker color. The blue flowers I curled under and the green I curled up. I went around the edges of all with my glitter pen.(Are you surprised??) I just love the subtle touch this adds. I added K & Co. pearls on my main images also. I also wanted to put some accents with my white gel pen but one of the girlies has decided to take it for there own!! I looked everwhere and can't find it!! Just a reason to run to Micheals tomorrow! (LOL) I really like the way this turned out and I hope my friend does too!!!

Paper: Prima & Bazzil bling
Inks: Distressed inks
Accessories: K & Co. pearls, Mini white brads ~ Queen & Co. , Charm ~ Micheals


Well thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a fantastic week-end!!
