Ava Loves to Celebrate by Stamping Bella. Her pretty party dress, tall, lucious looking cake and presents seemed fitting.
To start, I stamped her onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I then colored her with copics and added prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol for shading...mostly on her dress. I wanted her to pop so I cut her out and then placed her onto layers of circles cut using Nestabilites. To intensify the girly theme I added lots of glitter with a Quickie glue pen. It's on the cake, her dress and the ribbon on her presents.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Machine stitching finishes it off.
Next week we have another great sketch from Ebrubella. To be included in the Friday Bella Blog lineup, send a photo of your creation to Emily@stampingbella.com by Thursday night. Then link up your creation to SCS using keyword BELLARIFFIC1512.
Now before I leave you, I thought I'd share a photo of my playground. This is Ashokan Reservoir. The mountains are so darn majestic. The body of water is the main water supply for New York City. It's about 12 miles long and was made in the early 1900's by flooding the area. We're allowed to run, walk, ride or drive around part of it (including the bridge you see in the center) but we're not allowed near or on the water. My passion is bike riding. With the onset of my Rhuematoid Arthritis I have difficulty walking but bike riding is a breeze. The weather is supposed to be nice this weekend so hopefully I can get back outside for a ride.
Hope you enjoy your weekend.
