Girls just wanna have fun

Happy Friday! Normally this would be a Bellariffic challenge day, but we are taking a break over the holidays, and will resume on Jan 13th. But... I still have a card to share with you.

With New Years Eve just around the corner, I thought this image would fit it perfectly.  Two young gals out celebrating the new year.  This is Victoria and Juliette's Night Out - from the Uptown Girl series.

I started by stamping the girls on bella's bestest paper.  Skin tones were coloured using Copics and all the rest was coloured using prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol.  I then trimmed the image down to 5 x 3 1/4, then layered this onto a piece of eggplant c/s.  The designer paper is from MME - 6x6, A Beautiful Life. Nice thing about the Uptown Girl stamps is that they come with their own sentiment. I stamped the sentiment on some white c/s then cut it out using a s/binder tag die, left the die in place, sponged some versamagic aloe vera inside the die area.

Finishing touches - stitching, lots of glitter, glossy accents on the wine glasses, and a tiny chiffon bow.
Card measures 5 x 7.

If you would like a head start on our first 2012 challenge I have attached the sketch for you to get a head start on. Same rules apply, just email Emily your card by Jan 12/12. 

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year.  May 2012 bring you lots of love, happiness and good health.
See you next year!!

This is one of my favorite Bella images - love what you did with it here. Perfect sentiment too.

What a fab image and sketch. I gave up new stamping purchases for Lent, but I have found a bunch of things on your blog that I want. Glad I found it today.
