Sweet Sugar Nellies

Happy Thursday!

That means time to commit rubber-dultery! It's great fun using my stash of images. A little while back my friend, Jo, sent me a card folder filled with Sugar Nellie images, so today I took those out. They are super sweet!

This first card was colored with watercolor wonder crayons and an aquapainter. The cardstock Jo stamped these images on is fabulous for watercoloring. Everything blends so well. I'll have to ask her where she gets it and then I'll share that info with you. I used Brocade Blue and Pretty in Pink for my card colors. For embellishments, I used some brads and ribbon with paper piercing. Simple and sweet!


This next card was also colored with watercolor wonder crayons and an aquapainter. I chose this image to complete the Cute Card Thursday challenge, "anything cute with wings..." from last week. She's holding this cute little bird so I think this works. I used the same color combo as the card above. I also added brads and ribbon with paper piercing for the embellishments. To make this card a bit different, I made a scalloped edge with my corner rounder punch.

**To make these cards all Stampin' Up! you could use the set If the Halo Fits from the Spring/Summer Collection.

Hope you have a great Thursday! Happy Stamping!! :)

What a fabulous job you've done with these images Denise. The colouring is fab (as usual!) and you've just got a knack for choosing the right colour scheme!
