Uptown Girl Flora by Stamping Bella with her awesome bike, I knew she would adorn Jess's birthday card.
Now you aren't likely to see us riding in a skirt but this Uptown Girl is tres chic and looks fabulous wouldn't you say? I started by stamping her onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored her with copics. I also added shading with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. I used my new Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6x6 design paper from the Bella shop. I saw this on Em's post and couldn't wait to have it to create with. I also bought the new Queen & Co. blue and white twine. I must admit that part of my infatuation with this find was the neat wooden spool it came on. Hehe. But it also was perfect for this week's color challenge. The seam binding ribbon has Happy Birthday stamped onto it. I adorned the bow with a yellow button and the twine.
I wanted this a little girly so I also embellished with glitter applied with a Quickie Glue pen. I used a MFT die to cut the blue floral dp scallops on the right. The image panel was also cut using a die but this time a Nestie - the Large Petite Oval. Oh and the clouds were cut using a Memory Box die. The sentiment is an old Bella stamp I received ages ago but I remembered I had it (miracle there) and knew it would be perfect for this image. Machine stitching once again finishes this off.
