Another week has flown by...and that brings us to Bellariffic Friday once again! I have an image to share from one of our new designers in the Stamping Bella family, Christine Grove. This is Parker the Superpiggy and I LOVE him! Actually I love how all of Christine's images bring a smile to my face. This little cutie is going to a friend of my daughter's. She finally came to terms with a very very difficult decision she had to make. Superpiggy is my way of sharing that although she can't see past today and this moment...there's hope and super hero's ready to help her!
I started by stamping Parker onto Bella's Bestest paper and colored him with copics. I also added shading with prismacolor pencils. Then I actually cut him out. My original intention was to have a colored background circle but once it was done I thought he was hidden rather than popped so I just glued him onto a white one. Well that was a lot of extra work...ah, things don't always go like you planned in this craft right? Onto designer paper, I used Authentique Glory 6x6. I liked how it tied in the Americana and super hero status. I've matted that with Stampin' Up! cardstock and placed it onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar white cardstock. An ivory ribbon and star shaped buttons finish this off. I know - our challenge this week was buttons and I probably should have used more, in fact I had more out but once I lined them up, they looked too much so I took them off. Finished card is a 5 inch square.
Next week we're back with another sketch. Hope you can find some time to create with us!
Enjoy your weekend! And thanks for stopping by!
