Sugar Love....

Just a quickie from me tonight, this weekend flew by and I just did not seem to get anything done. Besides the fact that I am still nursing this damn (sorry for cursing) infection from the extraction I had over a week ago, it is time for me to go back to work today after twelve days off... Awwww poor me... LOL Enough of that or I will start rambling again... Anyway I have been back for a week or two now and thought it was about time I at least had a go at a challenge... here is my first.  Over at the Sugar Bowl there is a sketch from Marie Therese you can see it to your left, how pretty is that sketch.. I love those wings... they remind me of angel wings so I thought I would use an old Angel Stamp from Sugar Nellie..I have basically just layered and stitched then on each side of the image there are tulle knots that have had stickles glitter glue applied to them... Handy Hint Star Dust Stickles is a really fine glitter and beautiful applied this way, just dabs here and there...I'm not sure if you can see it in the photograph but it is all sparkly...I have also added some lovely small roses that are from Wild Orchid Crafts along with some pearl strips again from there.. I have topped them off with a pearl pin. The image has just been lightly painted using Distressing Inks. I've added Glossy Accents to the hearts and the word LOVE. Well that is all from me today, I told you it was a quickie... I am going  to go do some blog hopping after work this evening, I've not managed to do any all weekend...boohoo...Thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments since my return to the world of crafty blogging, they really do mean soooo much... and I will be working my way around all of your beautiful blogs tonight.

Tina hun this is gorgeous, so pretty, and very girly.. the way you have added the love sentiment is perfect..

toners and the digi's with distress inks.. I hope that i am not being thick here.. If i am correct in thinking.. laser printers use toners.. i hope so else what i am going to say is a lie.. lol..
I have a laser printer (hp color laserjet cp2025)and print on my watercolour paper and don't do anything to it, just colour with the distress inks.. I also have no problems if I print onto the smooth card and colour with copics.. so I would say yes you are fine using a printer that uses toners.. think that i need to google what my printer takes.. I just know that the things are huge and that they are expensive to replace.. but last forever.. rofl..
big hugs RAch xxxx
