Irma & Vieno
I am sooooo glad that Mo Manning has brought her fabulous images to Stamping Bella! I simply love to color them. And this pair, Irma and Vieno, part of the latest August release are no exception.
We were given the sketch from Paulinabella so thankfully one decision was down. Next came the paper which was a recent purchase of My Mind's Eye 6x6 pads. This one is from the Lost and Found Christmas collection. I stamped the pair onto Bella's Bestest paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with copics. I added the look of aging with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and surround shading with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol.
Other extras are velvet ric ribbon, a felt snowflake with a Ruby rhinestone and glitter - lots of it. It's one of the best things about snow scenes...you can make them sparkle like real snow by applying glitter with a Quickie Glue Pen. The sentiment is also from Stamping Bella and was cut using a Spellbinders Nesties pennant die.
Next week your challenge is to add some POP to your creation, ya know like dimensionals to Pop something up. Now that's an easy one. I do that alot on my cards so the image panel draws you in or under a button or flower. Don't forget to head on over to the Bella blog to see what the rest of the sistahs have come up with.
Enjoy your week!
