From the Heart - Spoonful of Sugar


Spoonful of Sugar Challenge 21 - Sketch by Lim

We have a lovely sketch by the very talented Lim this week on A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge, we had a great response last week to the challenge and enjoyed viewing all your entries, so hope you all join us again this week, Pop over
HERE
to see the sketch and get some great inspiration from my fellow DT members.



WOJ Melinda has been coloured with Distress Inks and H20's, with Sakura stardust added to her wings, the fabulous DP are from the new Urban Prairie collection from Basic Grey, wow there are some great papers in this collection. The corners are a die from Provo Craft for the Cuttlebug, the gingham brads are from Poppicraft, the little sentiment is fom the new release from WOJ and the rest from stash. I have again abandoned my usual safe matching colour DP and gone for a contrast, I don't find this easy as I have always been so obsesssed with having everything to match in clothing, and decorating the house, and sticking to just a couple of colours, but I hope this works, would welcome your comments.
