Sketch #12

Hi everyone! Welcome to another bellariffic challenge.  This week we had a sketch to follow.  We had a choice of either a circle card or a rectangle, and I opted for the rectangle.  

Here are the sketches:

 And this is what I came up with:

You will noticed I flipped the sketch to make it work better with my image.  The image I'm using today is called Flower Bottles.  I have used this one many times, just love the simplicity of this stamp.
I stamped it on bella's bestest paper and then coloured using pencils.  After cutting it out using spellbinder labels 22, I left the die in place and lightly sponged over the image using  Soft Sky (SU) ink. I then went along the edges of the die with antique linen (I used the same sponge that had the soft sky on it, just to give it bluish hue to it).

For the punched border strip I used a Martha Stewart punch.  Designer paper is MME- Notable. Finished off with some soft aqua seam binding ribbon, glossy accents (flower centers), glitter and pearls

You can see more inspiration for this weeks sketch challenge over at Bloggabella

Next week our challenge is 'SIZZIN' SUMMER'.  All you have to do to play along is use a Stamping Bella image, then email your card to Emily by thursday night, and your card will appear on bloggabella on friday as well as your name gets entered in for the draw for $20 in bella bucks.

Thanks for stopping in today.  Have a wonderful weekend.
