Boys rule!


Hello chicks! I'd like you to meet Arthur. Arthur is half of the Christy Croll dynamic duo Annie and Arthur. I don't make very many boy cards - there's way more girls in the family and well, I love glitter, ribbon and glam. I LOVE this guy though. And Paulabella's sketch for this week's Stamping Bella Bellariffic Friday challenge was perfect.

Arthur was stamped onto Bella's Bestest paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I know I sound like a broken record with that but hey when it works it works. You probably guessed that I colored with copics too, right. And wait here's another surprise, I added shading with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. You guys sure are smart. The design paper, from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist line, defined my color scheme. A brad from Stampin Up! fit perfectly into a single hole red button and I used it to anchor the Stamping Bella sentiment. Yup, this is a late card, if you know Cath, it's become my mantra. I can't seem to catch up and get ahead. Ah well, better late than never right?

Want to play with us next week? Well get your Green, Navy and Kraft supplies out - we're having a color challenge. Any Bella stamp will do but make sure to send a picture of your creation to Emily@stampingbella.com by Thursday night to be included in the Friday lineup. And ya never know, you might be the lucky winner of the random Bella Bucks for participating.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cath
