Bellarific Friday: 3rd Sketch for 2012

Hi all,

Welcome to another beautiful Friday!  What is everyone looking forward to this weekend???  I would love to have some beach weather, but I don't know if I'll get that :-(

On to brighter things...Bellarific Friday!  This week, we were challenged to use our third sketch!  The sketches are so much fun, and they are a great way to make cards for the occasions coming up!  Here's one last peek:

I actually turned it on its side to fit the image I was using.

Here's mine:
My card base is just white CS.  Following that are these layers: black, then white, then Brilliant Blue, then white.  On top of that, I added some So Saffron grosgrain ribbon, but there wasn't enough space for a bow or knot.

I stamped the adorable Turtle Tots - Summer Girls onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured them with Copics, and added some shading with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  Then I sponged around the edges with some Wheat Versamagic ink and matted that with black CS.
I stamped the sentiment Yummalicious onto white CS, cut it out, and cut out a black mat for underneath.

Next week's challenge???  Anything goes!!!  I know everyone loves these - so do us Bella Babes!  Make any project you want using any image sold at Stamping Bella and send it to Emily ( by Thursday night.  You'll be entered to win some Bella Bucks and your card will be published on the Bloggabella!  See you there!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
