Friends....

Today's Bellariffic Friday's challenge was an inspiration photo.  For my card I used the colours not the umbrellas - maybe that's because we've had so much rain and snow this spring!!



Stamping Bella's Tiny Townie Susie the Succulent is stamped with mementos inks onto bella's bestest white card stock and coloured with copics (skin and hair) and pencils.  I used the co-ordinating "cut it out" once I finished colouring the image.  I then mounted the image onto card stock that I inked with broken china distress oxide ink, then sprayed with shimmer spray & blotted.


I did the same layers and back grounds for the inside of the card.

Sometimes People Forget.....

Happy St Patricks Day!  Today's Bellariffic Fridays challenge was to add some bling to your card.

For my card I used one of Stamping Bella's Big Words stamp Sometimes People forget.


On a piece of white bestest paper I stamped an MFT floral background stamp with versa mark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then used spun sugar and cracked pistachio distress inks.  The sentiment is stamped with stazon on vellum.   I added some sequins and tiny rhinestones for the bling

I used the same colours to stamp the floral background on the inside of the card and again put the sentiment on vellum.  I flipped the colours on the stamp so the behind the sentiment was spun sugar
