A spoon full of sugar challenge 33

Hi everyone and a card today for A spoon full of sugar where this week there's a lovely sketch by Nikki to follow. The image is water coloured with distress inks, I've added a lot of stickles and sponged the edges with black ink. Everything is layered on cream card and Scenic Route paper. The heart sentiment is hand cut, sponged and doodled with black pen and Sakura pink sparkly gel pen. Flowers, gems and hessian from stash. TFL.

Materials:
Stamp: Hanglar
Paper: Scenic Route
Ink: Ranger distress inks
Embellishment: flowers (unknown), mm gems, hessian ribbon, sponges, Sakura gel pen, black fine liner, star dust stickles.

Back soon,
Chris
