This week's Bellariffic Friday challenge was Easter. I've been in Easter mode for weeks now so please hang with me. I have a few more images yet to share. Today I couldn't resist coloring Izzie is a Bunny. I LOVE all the Izzie's with their flowing skirts and curly hair and this was no exception.
I started with some nice new Memory Box 6x6 papers sent to me by Paulabella. So nice to have a sistah that shares. No asking either - I just came home the other night to an unexpected surprise. Woo Hoo. The papers helped me with the color direction - blue and green seemed perfect for spring. Izzie was stamped on Bella's Bestest paper, with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with copics. I also added shading with a combindation of prismacolor and caran d'ache pencils blended with gamsol.
A Martha Stewart border punch, hand dyed seam binding tape, a couple swarkovski crystals, glitter and machine stithching also adorn the card. You might notice that I also added shading aound my image panel with VersaMagic Wheat chalk ink while the panel was still in the Nestie.
Mini-Bella McKenzie found time to get creative this week...here's her Bella bunny.
Next week's challenge is this sketch from Danabella. I love sketches, it makes cardmaking twice as easy. So grab your favorite Bella image and some yummy papers and give this sketch a try. Then send a copy of your card to email@example.com by Thursday night. One lucky participant wins $20 in Bella bucks and one lucky commentor wins $10. Now head on over to the Bella Blog to see what the other sitahs have to contribute.
I'm also sharing a creation from my cousin's daughter - mini-bella, McKenna. Love how she used design paper and a sentiment to turn her image into the perfect Easter card.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend!
