Sew or Faux

Hi blogging friends!  Hey, the weekend is upon us once again, and looks like it's going to be a nice Mother's Day as well.

For the Bellariffic challenge today it is "sew or faux"- and I chose to sew.  Being that I love anything nature related I pulled out Pot o' orchids for Lulu. (sorry couldn't link it up, can't seem to find on the Stamping Bella site).

I started by stamping on bella's bestest paper and coloured with both copics and pencils.  The shading around the image was sponged on using versamagic wheat, persimmon, and pixie pink. Designer paper is by MME - Laundry Line - (I've had this a while) - see I'm slowly starting to dig into some of that stashed paper!

To finish it off I added some small mini pearls and stitched around the image.

AND  if you haven't already heard, we have a new BABE  in the house.  She is a wonderful artist, I've been a follower of her for quite some time - her work is amazing.  I introduce to you
Katrina Menzies.  I'm so excited that she is part of our team. Be sure to stop by her blog and show her some love!

Our next weeks challenge is another sketch.  You know the drill, email Emily by thursday night for a chance to win $20 in bella bucks and to have your card posted on Bloggabella.

Thanks for stopping in.  Have a great weekend, and Happy Mother's Day to all  the Mothers out there!

Pauline this is stunning - the soft shades are perfect & the shading and then the tiny pearls are the perfect accent
