Have you heard?


Another Sugar Nellie image today and a rather cas card too. I really enjoy making this style of card. I love embellishments but I do find some cards rather too frou frou for my taste. I like to enhance the image not overshadow it. Still each to their own. 

I tried 2 colour wings for the first time and I am really pleased with the effect. I use 2 shades of pink and 2 of blue and added some sparkle with a Wink of Stella pen. Unfortunately that never shows up very well in a photo.

This is so very pretty Marianne, the image is such a sweetie and I am totally with you on the embellishment thing. It's one of the things I am finding hardest with TL as they prefer lots so it shows up on screen.

Thanks for joining in and sharing your pretty card with us at Allsorts and Stamping Sensations challenges.

I do agree with you about embellishments, it's nice to enhance an image rather than distract from it.

I really love cards with lots of embellishments on but when it comes to making them I always end up like you, preferring a few well placed details and not crowding the image.

Especially when the image is as cute as this fairy and when you have spent the time and effort on colouring...the wings look amazing :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
