Sizzlin Summer!

It's Bellariffic Friday at Stamping Bella again folks and this week's challenge is Summer!  Summer to me means lazy nights spent cooling off with some ice cream so I pulled out Mo Manning's image Lacie with Ice Cream for the challenge.  I've made her into a Birthday Card to send summer wishes to a special little girl.

I started by stamping her onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento tuxedo black ink and colored her with copics.  I added surround shading using prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol.  I then used a Nestie circle die to cut her out and matted her with bazzil cardstock.  Design paper is by My Mind's Eye Kate & Co. Cambridge Court 6x6 pack.  Nestie Pendant dies were used to cut the flags which I then topped off with layered prima flowers topped off with a half crystal.  A gingham ribbon brings it all together.

Next week our challenge is a sketch:

If you can play along with us, don't forget to send a copy of your creation to by Thursday to be included in next Friday's lineup and you'll also have a chance to win $20 in Bella Bucks.  No time to play, no worries, stop on by the Blog and leave a comment and you might be the lucky random name chosen to win $10 in Bella Bucks.  It's pretty easy!!!  And with the new release the Bucks might come in handy.

Have a great weekend!
