Uptown Girls Victoria and Juliette's Night Out

I have yet another Uptown Girl image to share with you today. This one is for a girlfriend celebrating a birthday this weekend. I couldn't resist coloring Victoria and Juliette's Night Out by Stamping Bella designer Lulu. These girls are chic! And along with their sentiment I think they are the perfect image for a BFF on her birthday, or to celebrate a fun adventure which you might be planning (which we are). We're going to be meeting half way between Michigan and the Catskills along with our hubby's to celebrate New Years Eve in Niagra on the Lake. It's a gorgeous quaint little town and I'm so looking forward to the event.

You might have guessed that I stamped these girls onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I then set out to color them with copics but I'll tell you that I did add lots of prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol too for extra depth shading. I love the way their dresses turned out. I gave Victoria on the left a sparkly celebratory dress full of glitter. Juliette's flowing skirt was also accented with charcoal extra fine glitter. The image is pretty tall so it takes up alot of card space and doesn't leave much room for embellishing but I actually like the clean lines of this. The finished card size is 5x7. Color inspiration for the dresses came from the October Afternoon Sidewalk dp.

I'd like to give a big shout out to Leslie Good who won Paula's stamp giveaway. Whoot whoot. All she had to do was play along with the babes and well, Leslie is pretty much a regular participant. In case you didn't know there are Bella Bucks up for grabs each week to one lucky participant and one lucky commentor. If you'd like to join us this week, we are inking up Holiday images. What a great way to knock one off your to do list. I know I still have quite a few more to go. Don't forget to send a photo of your creation to by Thursday night to be included in the Friday blog lineup.

See ya back here on Friday!

Thanks for stopping by.
