Sugar Nellie- Leanne Ellis

I have had this card made up for a week but held back posting it as up until now they had been getting put up on the SN blog first but Ive now got the ok to post straight to my blog which is great
So here is my latest effort for the guest DT  at Sugar Nellie As usual can I remind you that if you like the stamp it can be found at Funkykits The  gorgeous stamp is called "Be One Traveller"
I've coloured the stamp with copics and the outside border and the eyepatch have been accented with Sakura Starburst pens in red and green. Used a nestie to cut the image out and layered it on a slightly larged nestie rectangle in black

 The background papers are from a  Basic Grey Sugar Rush 6X6 pad. One of my favourites. I have also used tea roses and 20mm roses from Wild Orchid. The tearose started off life as red but the smaller ones I coloured will a poppy red promarker. I find it more cost effective to buy mainly white or cream flowers then colour them to suit the card Im making.
The only down side is the constantly odd looks I get at my promarker stained fingers! I've also used rose buds in pink and white 
The little charm was made using a length of chain and a teeny heart stone Its all backed with Bazzil bling card .Oh and a swirl die for the black flourishes
I have entered the card in the following challenges

Copics used
Dress /Hair/flowerand feather C1,C3, C5,C7,C7.R27,R29
