Bellarific Friday: Kettos!

Hi all,

I am playing along again with this week`s Bellarific Friday challenge over at Bloggabella!  This week, Emily challenged us to use any of our Ketto stamps!  Now, I have to admit, that I have a LOT of KETTOs, so I had no trouble with this.

I went a little overboard on this one...LOL.  I actually chose my paper first, and molded everything else around that.  The patterned paper is from SEI, and it`s from the Windsor collection.  I punched the patterned paper with an EK Success large scallop edge punch, and punched the black mat with the double scallop edge punch.  The gold stripes are really metallic and shiny.  I also used Kraft, Basic Black, and Whisper White CS. 

On the next white panel, I added 2 gold corner stickers at the top.  To the bottom, I added some nice off-white satin ribbon - this was attached to a pair of pajamas I received as a gift. hehehe
For the next white panel, I cut the shape out by hand with my Luxe Labels template, and my hobby blade, and I added some dry embossing with the same template and a stylus. I went around the edge with my gold Krylon pen as well.

I stamped Agnes Ketto onto Bella`s Bestest paper, and cut her out with Label 4 Nesties.  I coloured her with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  Inside the Nestie, I added some sponging with my Wheat Dew Drop ink.  I also added some of the gold Krylon pen to her hair and stockings.

I added a bow to the bottom using the same ribbon and my Bow Easy.  It was attached with some Mini Glue Dots.

TGIF, and have a great weekend!
Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

Hi Stampinut!
I went to your blog and had no way of contacting you, so I am posting the Copics here and hopefully you see it when you come back!

The Copics I used were:
The "under" flaps of the skirt: Warm Grays (ie. W1, W3, W5, W7)

The "top" flaps of the skirt: Cool Grays (ie. C1, C3, C5, C7)

Shirt and stockings: E71, E74, E77

Wings: W1
Hair: E33, E25, E29
Hair bobbles: Warm grays again

I also used some gray Prismas for shading on top of the markers - French Gray 90 I think?

Hope that helps, and thanks for checking out my blog!
