Truly Scrumptious


My friend Mina came up with a lovely sketch this week for the Truly Scrumptious challenge and asked for a bit of "bling" to be added.
Well, I followed the sketch but maybe added too much bling.........
I tried something a little different for me using a Cuttlebug folder in an unusual way;
I haven't used any DP but made up for this by colouring some Cuttlebugging .I used a Victoria folder and shaded it with a Marsh Green Promarker.It takes a bit of time and patience but the result is that it looks like flocking(better than in the photo!)
The orchid image is one of the new stamps from my own collection a Passion for Stamps
I'm in a rush to get out now but will add more detail later if I can,Ruth
