Twinkle Toes Bellarific Friday

Yup, it's Friday again! Woo Hoo. And today I share with you Twinkle Toes Huggabugg from Stamping Bella. Since we are replaying last week's Bella challenge, I decided to share a new take on the sketch from Elainabella. I found it so very versitile - I can definately see me using this time and time again.

I must sound like a broken record but when you find a formula that works you have to stick with it. So, I've started with Bella's bestest paper, Memento Tuxedo black ink, copics and prismacolor pencils. But I did try something new. It's a technique where you apply lots of dots in various shades of the same color family to fill in color. I applied it here on the wings. I loved the soft coloring it added. Then I applied lots of Quickie glue and glitter - a fairy has to have lots of glittah!

Next, I applied shading with Tim Holtz ink while my image was still in the Circle Nestie. I layered this with the Inverted Scallop circle and toped it off with the Classic Circle Scallop - love how this looks like a ring of pearls. I chose the Basic Grey Cappella 6x6 design papers and added some machine stitching. I found the perfect copper baubles to put in the corners and a glittery shimmery ribbon to add a bow. I added a little extra shading on all the layers with the Tim Holtz distress ink as well.

Here's a closeup of the image for you.

Next week's challenge is a 1,2,3 card. It's easy, just use 1 Stamping Bella image, 2 design papers, and 3 embellishments. Then send a photo of your card to Don't forget to put "BF November 5" in the title so it doesn't get overlooked. Bow head on over to the Bella blog to see what the rest of the sistah's have made. A comment just might give you some Bella bucks just in time for the Holidays. Woot woot.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Cath I love how you put the panel on an angle! Miss McKenzie's creation this week can't wait to see what she's done for the 1,2,3 challenge!!
