Eggs in a Row for Bellariffic Friday

Happy Bellariffic Friday folks. Wow, the week has flown by. Hope you were able to play along with our sketch challenge this week. If not, head on over to the Bella blog to catch a glimpse at what the sistahs did.

Me, I made another Easter card. I couldn't resist the Spring feel of this stamp titled, Row of eggs with Bunny by Stamping Bella. I've turned the sketch sideways to fit the image in the oval panel and think it fits perfectly with the October Afternoon Ducks in a Row design paper. How funny is that - ducks in a row, eggs in a row, see the theme here? He he.

I also rounded the outside edges with my corner punch and matted in black for some pop. I used Copics to color but did add prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol for the grass, blue sky and shading. Notice that I also kept the image in the Nestie die and shaded with VersaMagic chalk ink in wheat for some additional shading.

I love having a sketch to follow, it makes short work of putting a card together. Thanks Dana for a great one!

card details: finished card size, 5 x 6 1/2, Bella's Bestest paper for image stamped in Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with copics, Viva Decor cream paper pen, Bella row of eggs with Bunny stamp and sentiment, black rhinestones, yellow grossgrain ribbbon, machine stitching, dimensionals, October Afternoon Ducks in a Row design paper, Stamping Up! colored cardstock, machine stitching, corner punch, oval Nesties.

Springy for sure! Love the flipped layout with the oval sentiment to match the oval image. I do the same thing with my nestie to sponge colour around the edge! The mini-bella cards are so pretty too - good job mini-bellas!!
