This week's challenge at the Sugar Bowl is to use a lovely sketch from Marlene, with the added challenge to include buttons. Yesterday, when I came home from work I found a lovely package in the mail from Annabelle of Split Coast Stampers. Annabelle organised a swap of Sugar Nellie images that I took part in. Daisy grabbed me right away and I dashed off to colour her at once, I think the stamp will be part of my next Sugar Nellie order somehow!
Daisy is coloured with watercolour pencils, the background is shaded with chalks. There's a little bit of Stickles yellow in the flower centres and I've added some to the DP flowers too. The daisy ribbon came from a sewing shop and the lace from my sewing stash. DP is Daisy Bucket, would you believe, from the Stamp Attic. I've used both sides of the same paper, checks on one side and the borders on the other. The border paper has torn and inked edges. The button is sewn with perle thread onto a flower.
