Mavis in Her 'Kini

Hi all,

I am playing along with some of my images from Stamping Bella today!  If you haven't seen the Mavis stamps in the store, you must go and check them out!  You will fall in love with that cat, and there are sooo many ways to colour her!

Check out how cute she is...

My card base is Bermuda Bay CS, and the patterned papers are from the Lovely Flowers DSP pack from SU - with black mats.  I also tied some fun Bermuda Bay polka dot ribbon around that base layer. 

I stamped Mavis in Her Kini onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured her in totally with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS - NO COPICS!  I cut her out with Label 18 Nesties (love that shape!) and added some Wheat Versamagic ink sponging to the inside of the stencil.
And all the black polka dots on her bathing suit were coloured with the black Sakura Glaze Pen for some shine and puffiness.

I strongly recommend that you head to the store and find some Mavis's that suit you!  I hope everyone is having a great weekend, and it'll be back to work tomorrow :-(

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
