Simon Says challenge is Heidi's choice this week, what a special occassion it is and a fab prize for the winner too. Heidi is the owner of SSS and it's her birthday today, the sketch was wonderful to work with and done in the quickest time ever. I don't have a leaf punch so omitted that, hope this still counts, however I do have a small collection of Simon Says Stamps and they are super to work with. Heidi also sponsors a number of challenges out there in blogland and they're always offering candy on their own blog too! What a generous lady owning a fantastic company!!! So as I wanted to enter this into A Spoonfull of Sugar challenge which is 'Distressing', I've used HOTP 8x8 paper pad 'Vintage' and chosen a similar image to compliment the theme. It's 'sweet lili' from Sarah Kay, used Crimson & Blake watercolouring pencils, glamour dust added to parts, chalking edges to give that distressed feel, strip of cream braid along bottom and three rhinestones. Oh nearly forgot the sentiment is a digi freebie from The Digi Shack. Thanks for any comments, bye til next time.
