Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy Competition......WOW....

Good evening peeps actually I should say good morning as its nearly 12.30.....but I always say its not another day until I've been to bed & had some sleep lol. Anyway I'm very late tonight 2 reasons, 1 is because I was actually posting 2 projects but there are a few things that are not dry so I will be back tomorrow with that 1. 2ndly I am late because I've ummed & arred & arrrred & ummed about entering the Sugar Nellie competition WOW Simply Sassy....I think most of us have heard about it havn't we lol.
I initially saw the comp & thought I might like a go so I ordered some stamps I only got 3 as the rest are on my crimbo list, anyway they arrived yesterday. So I had a play late last night colouring 1 I was sooo happy with it then somehow an ink sponge got onto the image.....well you can picture the rest cant you.... arrrgggghhh!!!! I was in a stormer of a mood yesterday morning when I found it & it wasn't until this morning when I thought I would give it another go....well I saw as an omen & that it was a sign telling me I should not enter..........after all have you seen the talented girlies that have entered.... I adore Sugar Nellie it was actually a SN stamp that I first brought when I begun stamping & when these new ones came out I knew I would have them eventually lol......just thought I would wait til crimbo lol........then again.....
Anyway the competition prize is this....

Also runner up gets their choice of 12 stamps.....isn't that amazing!! Now I'm gonna be honest I'm really not bothered about the prizes, I have the Grand Calibur on its way (plz let it be ere tomorrow) hubby got it me as early crimbo prez. Anyway there is a chance to be on the DT....well that would be 1 of my dreams come true.....I have 3 stamp companies that I truly love & 1 digi company these are my dreams to be good enough 1 day to get on their DTs. Sugar Nellie, Magnolia, Sweet Pea stamps & not forgetting Kenny K. Sugar Nellie was my 1st love so it is number 1 tbh. They are wanting white-on-white, well I've only done white once & I hated it, me & white dont see eye to eye.....here it is anyway. Oh I have used the VERY beautiful & 1 of my faves 'Fairytale' Sassy...she is an absolute dream to colour!!!!



Finally here she is close-up....

I used Copic & then mainly prisma for her hair, copics for her skin & promarkers for her clothes & she was stamped on LOTV smooth stamping card. I did 2 images the other 1 will be along tomorrow, she is the same but with different ink & dif colour.....just to show a bit of variation. Now I know I may not deserve to be on the team I know there is sooo much talent out there.....but I will keep on practicing until my colouring is as brilliant as others & maybe 1 day my dreams may be fulfilled.....or at least 1!!!
Anyway I'm droaning on now.....its cus I'm so blinking nervous.....
Get yourself over to Sugar Nellie & have a peekskie at the competition, get yourself some of the most gorgeous stamps which you can get here & join in the competition.....what have you got to lose.....except your hair going grey throught being that nervous...or is that just me????
Thank you sooo much for listening to me waffle more importantly thank you for popping in to look at my creation I really do value your comments & love reading them....you all totally rock!!!!!
Hugs to all, take care where ever you are.

On the contrary - white and you seem to go together just fine! Fab shape to this card and superlative colouring. I LOVE her hair! That's the other thing I really struggle with. Beautiful use of embossing plates and gorgeous trim - I think this is certainly in with a VERY good chance. BTW your message widgetty thingy is hanging over the comments box and so I can't see half of what I'm typing - it could be gobbledeegook! Hugs, Lesley

Hi Vicky this is stunning that image is so beautiful especially with your colouring, the white on white looks super, I just get frightened when the theme of white on white is mentioned, I love looking at what others have done as it always looks so elegant and classy but I think I have a phobia about trying it, lol. I am in love with this one though your design is stunning.

Vicky this is just amazing. If I were picking you would be in like Flynn! Your beautfifully coloured image really sets your design off a treat.

By the way, should you win the Grand Calibur, you could always pass off the prize to someone deserving (ME, ME, ME!!) lol Good luck ;-)

Thanks for joining in with our white and a spalsh challenge at Crafty Cardmakers.
