It's A Happy Mother's Day Bellariffic Friday

Yeah, this week's challenge has me ahead of the ball game - finally. I can't tell you how many times I loose track of time only to have special events sneak up on me. So I am super psyched to have this on my done list.

I couldn't resist the big bouquet of flowers that Patsy Pixie, one of the new releases from Stamping Bella, is playing in for my Mother's Day card. I also couldn't resist the Stella and Rose design paper - Gertie, by My Minds Eye. I started with Bella's Bestest paper and stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with copics but I used the coloreless blender to "paint" the color on with. Of course then I used prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol to add shading. If you look close, you can also see that I also added some glitter applied with the Quickie Glue Pen to give the appearance of days first dew.

Next week our challenge is Flowers - bring it on girls, your paper, embellishments, or your stamped image. Be creative but don't forget to send a photo of your creation to by Thursday night.

Caio for now.
