A Bellarific Sketch For You To Try!

Hi all,

Have you ever been to Jen Del Muro's blog???  Well, she is a stamping diety.
Every month she produces an awesome sketch for everyone called the Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT).  For the month of June, that wonderful sketch is being sponsored by a little company called Stamping Bella!  You can find the link to the post HERE, and here is the sketch:

OK, so I really wanted to use a specific image, so I had to warp the sketch only slightly.  Instead of the main panel being a circle, it's a long weird shape.  But otherwise, I tried to follow the rest of it.  I could see myself using this one again - great for patterned papers!

Here's mine:
My card base is Kraft CS, and all the patterned papers are from the Cosmo Cricket pack called Salt Air, with black CS mats.  The white strip down the middle was punched on both sides with my SU scallop edge punch, but it's a little hard to see because of that larger main panel.
I added a couple of black Martha Stewart pearls to the skinny strip across the bottom too.

I stamped the ADORABLE Posie Pixie onto Bella's Bestest Paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured her with Copics, and some Prismas and OMS for shading.  I added some black Sakura Glaze pen to her eyes, and the wings were also coloured with the clear Sakura Glaze pen. 
I cut that panel out with Label 4 Nesties, and added some Wheat Versamagic ink to the inside of the stencil.

Head over to the i {heart} 2 stamp blog and try your hand at the sketch!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
