Sugar Nellie Summer

Happy Saturday everybody!

This is my entry for this weeks Sugar Nellie Facebook group challenge. This weeks challenge is Yellow/Orange- Summer Colours.
I realise its very similar to my last card, but I liked it sooo much I thought 'why not?' lol

I've used Sugar Nellie's Hippie Chick again and coloured her in with my ProMarkers. This is my 1st attempt at layering and blending different shades for her hair. I followed Debbi's Tutorial and I'm pretty happy with the way its turned out. Its a wee bit light so I'll try building up the colour a bit more next time.

This is also my 1st try of stamping on SU card. So far I think I like it. Theres certainly less bleeding when colouring in!
The DP are Papermania, not sure which collection. The crocheted lace is from KaiserCraft Devonshire Collection and everything else is from my stash.

All comments welcome. Thanks for looking

  5. fabulous card Connie, and here's a wee tip for you, if you've followed my tut you'll have worked from dark to light so you won't have saturated the cardstock yet. You can repeat the process on top of your already coloured image and this will increase the depth of colour
