Sugar Bowl Sketch & Scraps!

Hello all my "Sugar Lovin'" friends!! It's time for another fun challenge over at the Sugar Bowl! Our very own talented DT sister, Erika, has given us this clever little sketch to follow...

...with "Use your scraps" as our theme! So...I pulled out one of my very fave Simply Sassy images and got busy sorting through my two HUGE containers of scraps!! This little darlin' is called "Luv a Latte"...and is available at Funky Kits HERE. And here's what I came up with...


All papers are from my scrap box...I do know that the cardstock is Ruby Red, River Rock, and Always Artichoke (from Stampin' Up)...and the DPs are anybody's guess! Hehehehe!! I am the WORST about tapping into my scrap box for projects...I much prefer starting fresh! Hence, TWO full boxes (and I mean BIG boxes) of DP and CS scraps! But, I digress...the ribbon and pearls are from my stash...the sentiment is from a new Stampin' Up set called "Morning Cup"...and the antique-looking hardware is also from SU. I used about a kabillion Copics to color this little darlin'...and a bunch of Prismacolor pencils for deeper shading. Here's an extreme close-up of this "Sassy" little cutie patootie!!


Here are a couple more views...



Here's a peek at the inside...pretty simple...this fun sentiment is from Just-Rite Stamps....


And, of course, the ever popular "artsy fartsy" view...


OK...now it's time to pop on over to the Sugar Bowl and take a peek at the gorgeous creations by my fellow DT Sweeties. Then...pull out your art supplies and get busy creating your own card or paper project for this fortnight's challenge. Who knows...you may just be selected to win a fabulous prize from Sugar Nellie. Our prize for this fortnight's Sugar Bowl challenge is....

...your choice of FOUR Sugar Nellie stamps
(increasing to SIX if we have 100+ entries!)...

OK...let the craftin' commence! Thank you so much for stopping by...and for your very kind comments that always make me smile!! Sending sweet hugs...until next time....

BEE-utiful coloring on this image my dear! Gorgeous shading and wonderful color combos. Love the sentiment - though I'm not a caffeine junkie - and only drink coffee in the winter (waaaaay too hot for me in the summer) Adorable finishing touches too!
Hugs,
Barb
