It's Bellariffic Friday again. If you've been following along, you know that this week we were challenged to use stripes. I've got some...well, if you look close you can see a strip of stripes in the lower design paper. And I'm pushing your imagination with the black and green diamonds to instead see ribbons basket weaved into alternating black and green stripes. Ha, can you see it?
This about wraps up my Halloween card blitz. But Trick or Treatabella is a must every year. I mean I wish I had legs like hers that I wouldn't mind showing off with my spiffy black boots.
You have no idea how much Halloween design paper I have and never get around to using. The papers I used here are from Imaginisce Hallowhimsy line. They are 12x12 pieces but the scale was just right. Ms. Bella was stamped using Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella's Bestest paper. She was colored using copics - I love using E99, E97, Y21 and YR23 as they blend so beautifully together. A piece of black velvet scallop ribbon and a sheer orange ribbon bow are the only adornments, well as long as you don't count machine stitching as an adornment. I did however add lots of Tim Holtz rusty hinge distress ink to shade around the image while it was still in the Nestie die. Its a real warm color and I love the added pop.
Next week we ask you to add some snow to your card. Ha, never thought I would be thinking about that so early in the season but girlfriends, we got snow last night for the commute home from work. Big fat wet fluffy flakes and they were sticking. Ack, I'm not ready for snow yet. So bring it on, either in the image, using glitter or flower soft or whatever suits your fancy.
Enjoy your weekend and see ya again soon!
