Sugar bowl challenge 59

And it's my turn to do the sketch with the theme distress or vintage...or maybe a bit of both!


And my take:


For my card I have used Sugar Nellie digi image Melissa, isn't she cute.
I have also used papers from K & Company Classic K Bailey, Spellbinder nestabilities label 8 and Lacey circles plus shapeabilites Parisian accents.  The outer edge of a doily from Wilton Enterprises, ribbon, star dust stickles and pearls from stash.  The stamp is Hero arts Anytime messages and I have used my distress tool and Ranger distress ink tea dye.
Finally the image was coloured using my copic pens.

I so love colouring these digi images because the shading and tone really makes life easy....and sometimes it's just nice to take it easy!!
As for the prize well I have to admit I'd love this one big time.....drum roll.....
it's a goodie bag full of steampunk loveliness.....someone is going to get some fabulous yummy new products.....look I've even gone green just thinking about it.
Finally, what do I always end my post with at Sugar bowl day....
you've got to be in it to win it!
Enjoy and I hope you have fun with the sketch and theme.

just gorgeous Erika, but I'm in a bit of a huff - I'm not very good at vintage/distress but I do like a challenge and even better when the hard work is taken out of it with a sketch so I'll see what I can do.
Am loving all Kath's steampunk sneaky peekies for her demo on Sat so I bet this prize is fab
have a great day quine

Gorgeous card Erika and your sketch is fab.
As for the distress/vintage theme..oh dear, I'm going to have to have words with you! I am terrible at this sort of thing and I needed a big lie down after just reading the theme!
Sorry I wasn't very good with this one, but loved your sketch :)
