A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge

Morning everyone, well October the month of "mists and mellow fruitfullness" is truly with us now and of course the month also brings with it thoughts of ghosts and ghouls as Halloween approaches, so we have a topical challenge for you on A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge HALLOWEEN. The Dt have as usual created some fabulous cards for you, we do hope you will join us again this week.

Thanks for all the comments on my Tutorial and I will have another one next week featuring colouring of faces and clothes. Now onto todays card for A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge, I have used one of Mo's from Mo's Digital Pencil's fantastic images for my card this week (isn't it fantastic that we may soon be able to buy these images as stamps yooohoooo).This little one reminds me of my GS Owen so much so I was pleased to be able to use it, I have coloured the image with Copics and used My Minds Eye Papers, the great ribbon is from Bunny Zoes Crafts, and the sentiment is from a clear Penny Black Set.

Sorry I keep forgetting to take a piccie of the Copics, I will do so this morning at some time.

Everybody Art Challenge

What a pleasure it was to be asked to be GDT for Everybody Art Challenge this week, thank you girls so much for asking me and especially Tina for giving us such a fabulous sketch to work with.

Now isn't this little Fairy Lili image from Inky Impressions sweet, Inky Impressions stamps are just so easy to work with the rubber is really deeply etched so you get a fabulous impression everytime and I just adore the cuteness of Lili. I have coloured the image with Distress Inks (Tea Dye, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters) and added glitter to the wings (I am not sure that I like the glitter, I very rarely use coloured glitter on images and looking at this I now know why). Picked up the papers from The Hobby House stand at Ally Pally and I just love them they are so soft. The flowers have been sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist as usual, the large rose is available from

Be back tomorrow with a sneak peek of a Wags'n Whiskers Image!!!!!!!!

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx

Kitty's having her sterilization done at the moment, so I don't think she's too happy - in the morning when we dropped her off to the vet she was spitting mad... Hope all goes well.

Stephanie V said...


I don't know if you will be able to help me. I bought some new stamps, they are sugar nellie.

I thought that they came with the wooden block for them to go on or that they stuck onto a perspex stamp block. They didn't, do you know what I should buy to use them?



Stephanie V said...

Hi Jacqui

Thank you so much for coming back to me so fast.

That is very helpful. I will try the prittstick idea and see how i get on with that.

Your cards are gorgeous. Love the boy with the pumpkins.

Many thanks
