Hi all - hope everyone had a good weekend.
Since I'm still waiting for the arrival of all of my new bella images (big sigh!), I pulled out one of my fav bella images to colour. They are the Stella's! I think Em needs to come out with more of these images, what do you think?
I have also been asked by a friend for a 50th birthday card, so I thought how fitting would Stella with an Olive on top be for this occasion!
bella's bestest paper, and coloured with primsacolour pencils and copics. See that fancy diecut piece behind Stella, well that is a new doily die I bought while at the Novi Stamping convention a few weeks back. It is gorgeous- it's very lacey, unfortunately most of it is covered up, but I still wanted to use it because I liked the airiness to it. I shaded around Stella using soft sand pencil but it just wasn't enough, so I pulled out my chalks and lightly sponged a soft yellow around her.
For the sentiment - celebrate - I stamped it onto a piece of cardstock vellum using black brilliance ink. I saw Linda do this on one of her cards a while back and liked it so I tried it myself - thanks Linda!
Designer paper is Basic Grey Lemonade. Finished off with some stitching, glitter, seam binding ribbon and a brad.
I hope you get a chance to play along in our challenge this week. It's a real easy one, it's a sketch by Cathabella! Email Emily your card by thursday night, so you will have a chance to win some bella bucks.
