Pullin' like a magnet and she don't turn loose...sure enough powerful stuff...

Mornin' sistah-friends! It's Friday...YAY!!! Yesterday was the last day of school...how did my boys get so big so fast? It's insane, really.

So this week's Bellariffic Friday challenge was another sketch...this time issued by Karenabella.

This was an easy one...thank you, sistah!!!! Here's my card:

Last night I sat and watched So You Think You Can Dance and pre-colored a bunch of images. Stella with an Olive on Top happened to be one of them, so I pulled her out to use for this week's sketch. She was stamped in Black Stazon ink on Fabriano Hot Press Watercolor Paper. I like to use it sometimes...it's so smooth and yummy....love it! Anyway, then I watercolored her with a waterbrush & reinkers.

After she was all colored, I added Diamond Glaze to her lips & shoes, and Diamond Stickles to her wand and tiara. Then I set her aside to dry. I took my Kraft base layer and added a strip of Basic Grey Sultry paper with a scalloped Chocolate layer. I matted the whole Kraft layer with Chocolate Chip, then mounted it to my Prism Iced Pink card base.

Once Stella was dry, I matted her with Chocolate Chip and Prism Intense Pink and mounted her to my card. I stamped the Bottom's Up! sentiment in Black Stazon on a scrap of the Hot Press watercolor paper so it would match my image. I added two layers of Prima Flowers (one was light pink, so I dyed it with my Rose Red ink pad), and then a large Strawberry Parfait dot in the center. As a final touch, I adhered three small Strawberry Parfait dots to the right of the image. I love these dots, because I am forever thinking, "MAN! I should have added a brad there!" after my card was assembled. Now I can just glue on a dot at the last minute and not worry about "brad butts." *grin*

Well, that's about it for me today, folks! Don't forget to check out Emily's blog for more eye candy using this week's sketch. And have a fabulous day!!

Lovely! That kraft bg really calms down that busy BG pattern. I never know what to do with that sheet.
