Sugar Nellies and Prismacolor Pencils!!

Have you seen the Sugar Nellie Images? OMG they are just the cutest!! I love the soft look of them - they remind me of my Precious Moments Collection. Well, I recently purchased a few of the images, some digital and some actual stamps. I received the stamps in the mail this week - and now I NEED to order more!! I did receive a couple more images from another stamper - but with only TWO rubber stamps and THREE digitals - I am going to get tired of those images quite fast and will NEED to order more - just might have to do that today. The images come from Scotland - my Great-Grandparents were born in Scotland - and I visited there a few years back - oh, how I want to go back again - and stay longer.
Back to the Sugar Nellies - I visited the Sugar Bowl and challenge #36 is up - I know, I always seem to jump into the middle of something!! Anyway - the sketch is a simple one - and the colors to use are even listed - pink, black and white - what could be easier? So, I looked at the few images that I have and thought this little girl on a trike was just the perfect choice. I used Melon Mambo for the darker pink and ribbon and mounted the image on a pretty in pink bg. I used a Sweet Impressions sentiment stamped in melon mambo. The coloring was done with prismacolor pencils - who needs copics when you have prismacolor pencils?

Thanks for stopping by the spa today - perhaps you can come back - bring your coloring medium and we will color together next time.

Nice to see you joining here also - Love your uncomplicated interpretation of the sketch too. I had to chuckle for I know what you mean - I started with a Sugar Nellie won on a blog hop in Feb & one that had come free with a mag & alternated the two!
much love
