A Spoonful of Sugar #70 – Sketch by Nikki

Challenge 70 - sketch by Nikki

This is the stunning sketch created by the gorgeous and so sweet Nikki for our challenge this week at A Spoonful of Sugar. Thanks for a fab sketch Nikki, it was so easy to work with.

I am keeping up with my pledge to get through as many Christmas cards as I can and couldn’t wait to play with one of my new Sugar Nellie Manga stamps. Doesn’t she look like she was made to swing on a star?! She’s coloured with ProMarkers and although hard to see (as always) has been glittered to within an inch of her life! The star was cut on the Cricut – Plantin Schoolbook cart (3” plus a shadow) and embossed with the Swirls Cuttlebug folder.
