A Good Book

Hi all back to normal fighting fit my colds gone hurrah!!
I've not been crafting much this week, the kids are on school hols
and the weather has been glorious.
looking through this weeks challenges
i decided to make this card.
It combines two challenges Passion for Promarkers and the
new Sugar Nellie challenge.

Passion for Promarkers has the theme Books and
the sugar bowl has a sketch and also a colour
combo of Black, White and Pink.

It's the first time i have used black to colour something other than hair
It was quite tricky to blend it with the grey i got a lot of bleeding onto
her arm and being dark it's quite hard to cover up.
I decided to cut it out and decoupage it that made it look

The stamp is a good book from sugar nellie.
the backing papers are from popcorn bear CD Rom.
I have used a nesti shape cut out of an old book page and
used distress ink around the edges
The flowers are prima and the butterfly is from a spellbinders die
and glittered round the edge.

I think I'll go outside and have a potter in the garden
thanks for stopping by
