Sending You Love

My Bella order arrived on my door step Friday and I was tickled pink to head to the craft room this weekend. I ordered lots of Valentine images so you'll be getting for the next few weeks. First up is yet another Cristy Croll image released in rubber through Stamping Bella. This is Sending you Love. I thought it would suit my nephews just fine!

The Sweet Sunday Sketch crew has new sketch that I couldn't wait to try. I missed the last one and not because I didn't like it but because I had some projects in mind that didn't fit it. Anyway, I made it happen this week. I started by stamping with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella's Bestest paper and colored with copics and pencils. The heart was done with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol as well as some shading throughout. The design paper is Love Me from My Mind's Eye. The sentiment comes with the stamp and here I used a Nestie Banner die and inserted it into hearts I also cut using Nesties. Niagra Mist VersaMark chalk ink was used for the surround shading.

Quick and easy! Don't forget that this weeks Bellariffic Friday challenge is Valentine, card about Love or uses red/white/pink colors. If you're linking up to SplitCoast Stampers use keyword BELLARIFFIC0412. Can't wait to show you mine. It's one of the new Valentine images from Bella's January release.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
