A Bella Teaser

If you read the Bella blog on Friday, you've seen that Emily is planning another release. She promises that this is her favorite yet. Well, I don't know what all the images are but I was lucky enough to get a few to play with. I thought I would give you a little teaser with another Mo Manning image released in rubber through Stamping Bella.

This is Sadie with Potted Roses. Oh my lord I had fun coloring this and paper piecing too. Yup, I gave her a designer apron straight from the Madeline Collection, a 6x6 paper stack from Prima Marketing. I loved the teal, green and brown combo. In fact all the design papers came from this collection. Cardstock is Kiwi Kiss by Stamping Up!, and a dark brown and teal by Bazzil.

Of course I started with Bella's Bestest paper and colored mostly with copics. But it wouldn't be complete without shading from prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol.

The image panel was matted in brown cardstock cut with a Nestie Deckled Mega Rectangle large die. I hand made the sentiment banner and attached it with glue. Machine stitching is back since I'm home and able to use all my tools. Gosh I love my craft room. A simple double sided satin ribbon bow is the only adornment.

Be sure to check out the rest of the babes to see what they might have to show you and stop back tomorrow for another preview. Don't forget to run over to the Bella blog tomorrow to see what else Emily has in store.

Have a great evening.
