The Sugar Bowl Challenge 10 sketch by Marlene

Another first for me on the challenge front.First time entering The Sugar Bowl challenge which was a sketch by the fabulous Marlene.
This poor little gorjuss girl,I really feel sorry for her.I hadn't stamped her properly and was really only getting used as a practice with my Copics to try and do the colour black.I was short of C9 so she's more grey than black.She also looks in colour how I felt the other day while colouring her.I was feeling miserable and it was dark and rainy outside,so she got the grey look. Needless to say C9 and a few other Copics into my shopping cart soon cheered me
Anyway,I had bought Daisy Buckets scrummy Little Black Dress papers in my local craft shop so decided she wasn't just going to be for a practice.So after I touched in the bits I'd misstamped with my copic fineliner and coloured her she got pride of place on the card.I think she's got
slightly more lace holes in her petticoat than should be,but nevermind.I kept her colouring totally monochrome even on her face which is slightly greyed,and the little fox is now of the Arctic buttons are cut from a Sizzix Die and covered in glossy accents with some floss threaded through,so I hope they
Enough waffling for now,I've got loads to do today as my friend's coming tonight to finish off her wedding invites and I've got a demo weekend ahead at my local craft shop,so apologies for not having blog hopped much .I'll try and pop round when I get a minute.
