Bellarific Friday: A Sketch

Hi all,

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you have some good stuff cooked up for this weekend.  I've been so busy at home - we are preparing to sell our house, and me trying to get my stamping done is almost comical...but we shall get through it and I'll be super happy once it's all done with!

Well, we had a loooooong 2-week break over at Stamping Bella - there was no challenge last week.  So we are back with an awesome sketch by Pauline-abella!  Just to remind you, here it is:

Well, that large square panel in the middle is just asking for an awesome image, don't you think???

Here's my take on it:

My base is Kraft CS, all the black paper is from SU's Groom Specialty pack, and all the mats are white.  I added a bunch of white Martha Stewart pearls all over for some extra interest (I really love those pearls - I use them all the time).  The strip across the middle was punched with the Martha Stewart crown edge punch as well - love that one too!

I stamped You Are Unique onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink (trusty 'ol routine).  I coloured it in with Copics, and added a black and white mat to it.  I added some black Sakura Glaze pen to their eyes as well.  I wanted the card to be pretty plain so that the colours on the image would stand out.  This image is so adorable and perfect for any girlfriend!

Next week's challenge???  Pop it up!  We want you to add dimension to your card.  This one should be soooo easy, and there is no excuse not to play!  Make a card using any of the images sold at Stamping Bella and add dimension to it - send it to Emily ( by Thursday night, and you will be entered to win some Bella Bucks, and your card will be published on the Bloggabella!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

If I didn't know any better I'd say you were a hair stylist but you're definately a copic hair expert! Love the detail on each girl's hair has. Super fun card!
