Bellarific Friday: Sketch from Cathabella!

Hi all,

Happy Friday!  As you read this, I am in Europe, I'm sure having the time of my life!  I will be heading to Prague tomorrow and it'll be my first time there.  I'm stoked!

Anywho, let's get to this week's Bellarific Friday challenge!  Last week, we got an amazing sketch from Cathabella and it was super fun to work with!  Here it is:

Here's my take:

My base is Kraft CS, my patterned papers are from SEI (Black Orchid collection, I think), and I matted everything with black CS.  I added Martha Stewart pearls to the corners.  I added a white strip across the middle punched with the Martha Stewart fence edge punch, and a black strip punched with the Martha Stewart lattice edge punch, and I finished that off with some Certainly Celery poly twill ribbon.  My sentiment is from SU (forgot which set though). 

I stamped Harriet lulu onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured her with Copics and I coloured her hair in with my black Sakura Glaze pen for some shine!  I cut that out with Nesties and added some sponging with Wheat Versamagic ink inside the stencil.

Next week's challenge???  Back to school!  Just make a back-to-school project using any of the images sold at Stamping Bella - submit to Emily ( by Thursday night, and you will be eligible to win some Bella Bucks and your project will be published on the Bloggabella!  There are plenty of adorable school images, so you should have no trouble!  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

Ok if you see this - know that Prague is the best place to visit in the world! I was lucky enough to have been there about 5 years ago and so enjoyed it. Tons of history on every street!

Next up is this terrific card! I love the black glaze pen on Lulu hair too! And the cookies look so yummy!
