Have a Magical Day
Today I have another Stamping Bella image to share with you. This is Izzie with a cherry on top. I thought she would be perfect to send some birthday greetings to my new co-worker. This little sweetie along with a nice chocolate decadance cake from the Italian Bakery back home will be heading to work with me tomorrow.
My inspiration was some design paper that Paulabella sent my way. You should see the stack she sent me. There were so many brands that I have to tell you I have no idea where they all came from. So we'll just call these the Paula stash. I wanted to highlight the golden yellows and bright pinks and set out coloring with copics. The cherry was highlighted with a red Viva Decor paper pen. Glitter sprinkled on top reminded me of sprinkles. Some repurposed bright pink ribbon tied with twine and buttons helped anchor my image panel.
Let me tell you a secret about that ribbon, it came from a Victoria Secret bag. Hubby thought I was nuts when I ripped it from the bag at Christmas time to reuse. I told him I knew I could put it to good use. I think I just proved I was right. He he. Buttons are another item I love to repurpose. I cut them from shirts and things that have outlived themselves to be worn. I know they'll look great on cards. I even found a nice black one in the parking lot this past weekend. Mom thought I was nuts when I bent down to pick it up. I told her that I knew I would use it some day. She shook her head. See, ya just never know what you'll find.
I was out of town this weekend and not able to participate coloring some of the new images Emily will be releasing this week. But I've visited some of the other babes and they are sneak peeking them before they go on sale Tuesday. This is a perfect way to figure out your shopping list. I know that I've got mine started and can't wait for Tooseday to get here.
Don't forget this week's monochromatic challenge. I'm working on shades of green. How about you?
See ya later peeps.
