Bellariffic Friday on Monday...
Our challenge was to use stitching. That's not really a challenge for me - I love to add stitching to my cards. I think it gives them a finished look. What I should have done was to add faux stitching - now that WOULD have been a challenge but alas my spirits just weren't with me last week. I pulled Uptown Girl Posh off the shelf and made her into a Birthday card. I have a Bizillion birthdays in May to prepare for and the Uptown Girls are so dang gorgeous I couldn't resist using one.
You've probably guessed that I stamped Posh onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with copics. I added some glitz to the packages and her dress with glitter applied using a Quickie Glue pen. A Sakura Gelly Roll pen was used on the dots of the bag. The design paper is My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy Girl 6x6. The cardstock is Bazzil and the card base is Neenah Classic Crest Solar white. Ground and surround shading was added using prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol and two pink Dew Drops in the lower right corner finish this off.
Katarina Menzies! She's gonna WOW you with her coloring!
Enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by!
