2014 & NEWS

Hey there, happy 2014 crafty friends!  Did everyone have a great Christmas and New Year's?  I was sick with the flu!  I'm getting better every day, but alas, the cough lingers.  Ugh!  I have some exciting news to share with you though...I was invited to be on the Stamping Bella Design Team!  Whoop!   With that said, here is my first project as a Bella Babe...




I blew the dust off the 'ol brayer to use for the background.  As you can see from the dark line at the top, I could use a little practice.  *snort*  I'm really not sure what happened, but I'm going to say dusk is turning to night and well, it is what it is!  Ha!  Anyway, after the sky was inked, I decided to use Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #200 for the layout.  It's a loose interpretation of the sketch, but if you look closely, all of the elements are there...I did scoot the banner to the right hand side to make room for the Uptown Girl.  The image, Opal the Optimist was stamped with Tuxedo Black, colored with Copic markers, fussy cut then popped up on foam.  My Favorite Things die cut elements complete the card.  I'm also entering this into Little Red Wagon's #218 New Beginnings challenge.  I'm celebrating a new beginning on the Stamping Bella DT and also used a new Uptown Girl stamp.  Love her!

COPIC COLORING: 
SKIN:  E11,  E01, E00, E000, E0000, R30, BV20  HAIR:  E43, E42, E41  DRESS:  B23, B21, RV02, RV000  SHOES:  RV02, RV000  WINE BOTTLE:  B26, B24, B23, C2, C0, 0  WINE:  RV02, RV000  WINE GLASS:  BG72, BG70, 0

Bellarific Fridays returns next week, January 10, with the first official challenge of the year!  It's all about inspiration next week...use any element or the overall "feeling" you get from the photo to create your project then email it to Em for your chance to win!  Here's your inspiration...I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
