Fabby!


Ok, I love this girl. Fabby is a Cristy Croll image released in rubbah through Stamping Bella. Doesn't she look like she's having the time of her life? I can't tell if it's because she's a dancer and finally made Broadway or she just won the lottery and is heading shopping! How cool would either of those be?

Me, I'm doing the happy dance because the sketch is this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge so I didn't have to think about it. Fellow Bella Babe, Dana is part of the team and I love to check out her blog on Sunday morning. Head on over to Karen's blog to see the rest of this weeks creations.

Let's get down to the details. Fabby was stamped onto Bella's Bestest paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with copics. I then added two mediums to give the image panel shading, first, Prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol for the surround color and then Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Scattered Straw for the corners. Oh and I also shaded the white Nestie Blossom Circle with the distress ink too. I'm not so comfortable with all the mixed media art work my fellow Babes have been sharing but I'm slowing trying.

Since the My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Gertie paper was on my desk, I used it here for the dp. The center of the flower was dry embossed using a Cuttlebug Polka Dot folder. Two buttons from my stash and bakers twine adorn the right while a sentiment tag adorns the left. The sentiment actually comes with the Daisy Stove image (you'll be seeng that a little later this week).

You still have time to work on this weeks Bellariffic Friday challenge. It too is a sketch challenge from our very own Paulineabella. Take a look and play along won't you?


Thanks for stopping by ...
See ya later.

Your card is fab with all the dots and the scallops and the soft shading - very pretty. I think that's me jumping with joy because I've finished my card for Friday - you know how much I love a sketch and Paulines was great!

Love this. What a fun image. I agree, she looks so happy. Must be some kind of special good news came her way. I love the idea that she just made it on Broadway.
