Bellarific Friday: Fall Colours

Hi all,

Well, isn't it just the sadest thing when you have to go back to work after some time off?  I am amazed that everyone that comes back from vacation doesn't go into a deep depression! LOL

Anyway, it has been TOO LONG since I played along with Bellarific Friday, so I am getting back into it this week!  Every Friday, there is a challenge on the Bloggabella, and this week, we were supposed to create something using fall colours.  I don't really have any fall stamps, but I really wanted to play, so I just chose a stamp I love, and put the fall colours to work!

By now, you all know how much I love to colour, and I'm sure you can figure out how much I love Mo Manning's images!  I chose the adorable Cinderella to work with this time.  Isn't she darling?  AND she comes with a really cute sentiment, that you will see in my last pic.

I made sure to get some use out of my SU retired Fall Flowers DSP on this one - perfect for a fall card!  I also used Whisper White, Really Rust, and Soft Sky CS.  I did some sewing on the bottom panel with my Janome Sew Mini machine.  I took some delicious chocolate satin ribbon, and draped a piece down the centre, and cut a "v" at the bottom.  Then, I took another piece, and made a bow using my Bow Easy, and attached that with a mini glue dot. 

Cinderella was stamped onto Bella's Bestest paper with Memento ink, and coloured with Copics, and Prismacolor Pencils, and cut out with Rectangle Nesties.  I then sponged on the inside with some Wheat dew drop ink, and matted that piece with the Soft Sky rectangle. 

On the inside, I used some more of the same DSP, and I stamped her sentiment onto some white CS.  I just love the image and the sentiment - they are perfect!

Well, I hope everyone is looking forward to their weekend!  Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

Robin this is so adorable. I love this image, but yet to color her up. Your colors are so soft yet nice fall tones.
Love that big brown bow!

I just found this blog from your most recent card you posted on SCS. Can't believe you are living in TO, do you ever give classes in coloring? If so, I'd be first on the list to sign up, as I live near Hamilton and would love to learn from your considerable artistic talent!

Best wishes,
