Bellarific Friday: Sketch #1

Hi all,

Welcome to another beautiful Friday!  I hope you've got some great stuff planned for the weekend!  The temperature outside is significantly dropping this weekend in Toronto, and I don't approve...
We had such nice, mild weather this week, and it has to round out with freezing temperatures and snow.  Hmph.

Well, let's get onto brighter topics - it's our first Bellarific Friday of 2012!  Welcome back to all those participants and window shoppers!

Some great things happening already this year!  Stamping Bella is back on SplitCoast Stampers - you can check out the threads HERE.
There are some fun discussions over there, and we have a challenge running as well, using this week's Bellarific Friday Sketch!  The thread is HERE - make sure you check it out for all the rules.  I've already been browsing the entries in the gallery and they are amazing!  For the SCS challenge, you get some extra time to play with the sketch - until Jan. 19!

There is also a thread started for questions...like, if you want to ask any of the Babes any questions, or Emily herself.  The thread is HERE.  Ask away!

Here is the sketch for this week, designed by the awesome Ebrubella:


Here's mine:

My card base is white CS, and the patterned papers are from SU's Simply Scrappin' Kit called Crew Kids Girl, with all black mats.  I added some black stitching to the smaller 2 panels, and some CTMH rhinestones to some of the corners. 

I stamped the ever-inspiring Veronica by Mo Manning onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink.  I coloured her with Copics, and added some shading with my Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  I cut her out with Blossom Nesties, and added some Bisque Colorbox Chalk sponging inside the stencil.
The sentiment also comes with the image!

Is this chick anyone else's hero???  She's hilarious.

Anywho....next week's challenge???  To ink up your favourite image!  This one should not only be easy, but so much fun!!!  Go through your binders and find your favourite Bella image - send your card to Emily (emily@stampingbella.com) by Thursday night, and you'll be entered to win some Bella Bucks $$$, and your card will be published on the Bloggabella!  Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Have a great weekend!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

Sigh! I just love your colouring again, I think I will have to begin stalking your blog. Blogger is being funny about letting me follow people at the moment, (Grrrrr!) but I will be back. :) xx

Ohh my this girl looks fabulous! I mean seriously your shading is so fantastic! And you're another one with the trimmed image in the image panel - I never think to cut an image off but this looks like it was meant to be. Love it!
