Izzie has a Cherry on top!


Today I thought I would give one more shot at the June SFYTT. Since Stamping Bella is this month's sponsor, I decided to color an Izzie. They are one of my all time favorite Bella's. This one is Izzie with a cherry on top. I paired it with October Afternoon Fly a Kite design paper and thus the colors began.

First I stamped her on Bella's Bestest paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink. Then I colored with copiccs. I did add some shading with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. Soft shading with French Grey 90% was done on the skirt and the cupcake, Burnt Ochre was used on her face and Scarlet Lake for the frosting. Since I cut her out, I didn't have to add any surround shading or ground. I did add Black Glaze pen to her shoes and Stampin Up! Crystal effects to the frosting for some shine.

Machine stitching pulled it all together along with Nestie Circle, Blossom and Petite Oval dies. The sentiment is also a Bella. It's not currently in inventory but there are plenty of others.

You still have a few more days to participate in Jen's challenge. Hope you can play along.

Thanks for stopping by.
