Bellarific Friday: Linda's Sketch

Hi all,

It's Friday again, and such a wonderful day it is! Next weekend is Easter - is everyone ready??? LOL

Well, I am focused on another holiday today - I have taken that leap and made a Christmas card in April :-)  I know, I know...get a life, right?  Pshhhhh, anyway!

This week at the Bloggabella, we were graced with a sketch challenge (usually my favourite!) - and our hostess with the mostess is the ever-lovely Lindabella! (P.S. I love this woman - if you haven't been to her blog, you MUST go - she is a colouring goddess!)
Here is the sketch:

That oval is pretty much PERFECT for any of the Stamping Bella images...thank you Linda!

Here's mine:
My card base is PTI White, and my patterned papers are from SU's retired Frosty Days pack - I love when Christmas colours are non-traditional!  I matted everything with black cardstock, but added a Tangerine Tango layer, which was punched on both sides with my SU scallop punch.  I also wrapped some Tangerine Tango striped ribbon around that, and my sentiment is Holiday Cheer - another awesome sentiment you can just plop onto any card!

I stamped King of the Candy Canes in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Bella's Bestest Paper, and coloured him with Copics.  I cut him out with Scallop Oval Nesties and added some Close To Cocoa sponging inside the stencil.

Copics Used:
*Crown: Y11, Y32, Y35; C00, C1, C3
*Hair: E31, E33, E35, E37, E49
*Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, YR00
*Jump Suit: G21, YG93, YG95, G28
*Candy Cane: R22, R24, R29; C00, C1
*Stocking: Y11, B32, B34, B37, B39
* Shadow and ground: W1, W3, W7

That's it for me today...don't forget next week's Bellarific challenge: FREE FORM! That means you can submit whatever you want, using whatever Bella images you like! Go crazy!
Email your creation to Emily ( by Thursday night, and your card will be published on the company blog on Friday, and you will be entered to win some Bellabucks!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
