Bee Mine Valentine


Ebru has given us another awesome sketch to work with this week. And since we are so close to the holiday of love I decided to color another Cristy Croll called image called Beemine Huggabug released through Stamping Bella.

Notice that I switched up the sketch a little by swapping out the circle image panel for a heart one. I then cut my Huggabugg out and adherred her to the heart too. Design papers are from My Minds Eye Lost and Found Madison Avenue. The image was of course stamped onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink and then colored with copics.

Here's a close up. Note that the sentiment was only partially stamped. The full sentiment is "Valentine Wishes" but you wouldn't see all of it so I only stamped Valentine. The swirls are cut from a Sizzix die and were adorned with pink rhinestones. Machine stitching and a purty black ribbon bow finish this off.

Next week you have some options if you want to play along with us...you can create a love card, a Valentine card, or a red/pink/white card. How easy is that? Don't forget to send a photo of your card to Emily@stampinbella.com by Thursday night. You can also link your card up to SCS using the case sensitive keyword BELLARIFFIC0412.

I received word that my new Bella images are shipped and on their way. Can't wait to see Mr. UPS man. I've got some coloring I want to do.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by.
