Happy Wednesday, y'all! How's your week going so far? I'm working hard here in Austin, but I left you a little eye candy while I'm gone. Aren't I the sweetest? *grin*
I have this quick little Bella card to show you today using an image I colored last week. Did I mention that I love having a stash of pre-colored images? I usually do it when I'm feeling my mojo slipping or when I need a break from stamping. So I pull up the coffee table, turn on some good TV, and color away! It's quite relaxing, and productive, too. You oughtta try it!
So anywho, I stamped Cakeabella in Black Stazon on Fabriano Cold Pressed watercolor paper, and colored her with a waterbrush & reinkers. After I trimmed the image down, sponged the edges, and matted it with Chocolate Chip cardstock, I took a peek at the Clean and Simple blog to find a layout that fit the size and shape of my image. I settled on Sketch 38, and after folding my Kraft card base, I cut a strip of Kiwi Kiss cardstock down, stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa ink. After I adhered the strip down, I pierced a row on the top and bottom of the sentiment panel, then popped the image panel up on dimensionals. For the finishing touches, I added a white button and Diamond Stickles. Simple and easy!
Well, I'm off...thanks for coming by today! Don't forget to check out the latest Bellariffic Friday sketch...we'd love for you to play along! Have a great day!
