Sugar Nellie Challenge

Hi Guys,
Its time for another challenge over at the Sugar Bowl
anything goes again and all you have to do is use a Sugar Nellie Image.
Thats soooo easy because there are so many to choose from.
I love them all.
Here is what I chose this time....
This is from the Autumn kit at Funky Kits. I just love her!
I've used my Derwent Inktense pencils to colour the image on the card.
Look how 'intense' those colours are.
I know I'm a pen and pencil addict but how can I not be with colours like this.
But I didn't finish there...
I decided to get out the skink plastic and stamp her again to make a little charm.
how tiny is she now!
here's a better look at the charm.
I coloured her with copics but if I can give you one little tip it would be to colour the shrink plastic
in lighter colours than you actually want because they will become darker when you shrink it.
I made a couple of acorns with the plastic aswell and added a couple of leaves which I bought from ebay some time ago.
(I knew I needed them for...something)!
Hope you like this as much as I liked making it and if you haven't tried shrink plastic yet, give it go...its so much fun.
you can find the Autumn stamp collection here
I hope you will come and join us at the sugar bowl so we can see all your creations too.
thanks for visiting my blog and I'd love it if you could leave a comment to say Hi and let me know you have been here today.
