How about Milo?

Since I showed you Millie earlier this week, I thought you should take a look at her side kick Milo too! Gosh he just melts my heart with that spikey hair, untied shoe and well dressed package. In case you didn't know, Millie and Milo Exchanging Gifts is a single stamp by Stamping Bella that can be easily stamped individually. Woo Hoo - it's a two'fer.

I stamped Milo onto Bella's Bestest paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with copics. Ground shading was added using prismacolor french grey 50% and 90%. Shading around the image was done with Versamagic Wheat chalk ink. Colors were inspired by the Miss Caroline My Mind's Eye Fiddle Sticks 6x6 design paper. I love this! Nice soft shades...perfect for Spring and Easter right? I finished this off with machine stitching, a silk ribbon bow topped with a button and purple hemp cording.

You still have time to play along in this weeks Bellariffic Friday challenge. This week all you have to do is use Polka Dots on your creation. Pretty easy! Send a photo of your creation to by Thursday night and you can be included in the Friday blog lineup. Need a little more time? No problem, link your card to SCS using keyword BELLARIFFIC0812.
