A Spoon Full Of Sugar






My entry for this weeks A Spoonfull Of Sugar Challenge following a sketch by the very talented Nikki! I have tried distressing again..... although I am never too sure about my own attempts at this. I see some lovely ones on other peoples blogs and strive to reach the same effect. Hubby just said it looks like it's been twisted and baked in the oven so maybe thats a compliment lol!
I have used my grooming Mimi stamp which is available from Pink Gem Designs.

Materials

Grooming Mimi - Pink Gem Designs
CS - Bazill Bling
Colouring Inks - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Fibres - Knitting Wool
Sentiment - Pink Petticoat
Stick On Gems - Poundland
Tools - Cuttlebug, Nail File, Poking Tool, X-cut Punch
