Sugar Bowl Challenge 12 - Lia's Sketch

This has been a busy week, however today I'm settling down to craft and catch up on some of the serenity of cutting up paper and stamping...

I used Lia's very pretty sketch from the Sugar Bowl's Challenge and coloured my Leanne Ellis image to match the gorgeous new Basic Grey papers that I got from the Stamp Attic a while back.

The colours are soft peaches, green and yellows, I got my Copics out (must persevere with them) and coloured Annie accordingly, adding some Distress Ink round the stark white edges. A flower punched from the papers and some peach lace from my sewing stash finished it off nicely - till I read the Sugar Bowl Challenge again and saw that I should have included green and blue! Ack! Luckily I found some pale blue ric-rac that I've attached on top of the lace that doesn't upset the colour scheme too much. Note to self: RTFI. Read the flippin' instructions :)
