Sugary Sarah

I just love Sarah Kay images, I wonder why I have not used them. Maybe because I was treasuring them! hehehe
Anyway, this card is for the sketch challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar. I have got a couple of challenges lined up, I AAAMMM working on them! :o)
About the card... as I chose the colour combo for this card, I did not even remember to check if I have the matching glitters or paper. All I use are wrapping papers instead of designer papers (I don't think that we have those beeeauutiful papers you guys use). Anyway, here is where I tell you about the pathetically drawn and painted background behind the Sarah Kay image! LOL Yeah that is done by me. I doodled for a while to get something out of it, so I could use two colours, both plum and olive. Used colour pencils, paints markers and what not to get the effect I wanted, hence the dirty look. Hahahha

I coloured the vertical borders of the card with an olive coloured pencil and then outlined it with a gold pen. The bordering helped a lot in framing the card and giving it a better look. I added faux stitch without piercing just for the heck of it! :-p

Because the plum card sheet was not textured and I don't have cuttlebug or any embossing folder I doodled a bit. Just enough to fill the weird empty space. Good thing I had a gold pen, otherwise this card was looking so plain.

The flower was added in the end.. I made this quite a few weeks back and did not where to use it. Good thing I chose these colours!

Astounding! Love the intricacy of that flower & using wrapping paper is brilliant though my favourite papers are the ones you doodle. Amazing work! :o)
