Another of my first Sugar Nellies


As promised last week I used another of the first 3 SN stamps I bought back in 2008. I still love this Elisabth Bell image and believe you can actually buy her as a digi now. I used my original stamp from Funky Kits, I think there are pros and cons for rubber and digi but somehow I feel like I own a rubber stamp more than a digi which is just stored on a computer, and backed up of course too.
Image - Elisabeth Bell for Sugar Nellie Sweet n Sassy
Medium - Copics, Sakua Gold Star pen
Papers - MME Howdy Doody
Wooden bird - Hobbycraft coloured with DI Spiced marmalade
Fern leaf - MS punch
Flowers - Michaels
Other - seam binding, Sew stamper for blanket stitch doodling and pearls from stash

Lovely card Marianne.

I know what you mean about feeling that you 'own' real stamps...but it is nice to have the versatility to alter sizes sometimes - a bit like my view of e-readers; they have their uses but will never replace the real thing.
