Mallard - Female

Hey, how are you all doing?  I'm back tonight  with a quick post, still have Christmas cards to get done and out in the mail. 

I'm using one of Stamping Bella's images, which I don't think I have every coloured one of these before.  I have several, but for some reason just don't know why I haven't gotten around to colouring them.  So here we have Harriet!

Harriet was stamped on Bella's bestest paper and then coloured with Copics.  The shading around her was done with pencils.
Urban Prairie by Basic Grey was my inspiration for the colours I used.
After she was all cut out and layered onto the card, she looked to plain.  I tried ribbon, na didn't do anything for it, tried baubles, nope couldn't even see them in the pattern paper, so next I reached for my Prima flowers.  I hope this one isn't too big and overpowering her.  Then I punched out some leaves using a Martha Stewart leaf punch. Finished off with some stitching and glitter, oh and a little bling in the center of the flower in her hair!

In case you haven't heard Emily is giving you a chance to win triple bella bucks this week- that's $60 SMACKEROOS, as Emily put it!!  All you have to do is follow this weeks challenge guide - which is a sketch layout- and submit to Emily by thursday night.  Your name will go into a draw, and who knows you could be the lucky winner - don't have a chance unless you play, so what are you waiting for!!

See you on friday... I better get movin' I don't have my card done yet- yikes!!
