Happy Bellarific Friday! I hope everyone has had a great week. It's definitely been a long one and I'm so looking forward to having a weekend to play in my craft room. This week's challenge over on the Stamping Bella blog was to use the following MojoBella sketch and below is what I came up with.
I just love the Stamping Bella new release and I knew I had to color up this adorable stamp called Tropical Squidgies. What's neat about this set is that you get three stamps: the sentiment and the image in two different sizes. How cool is that? I used the smaller size to fit the sketch. I stamped it onto a piece of X-Press It blending card with Simon Says Stamp Intense black ink. I then grabbed a myriad of Copics to bring the little squidgies to life. Here's a snap of the colors I chose:
After coloring the image, I cut the piece down to fit the sketch. I was really inspired by a new paper pack I bought from Pebbles Inc. called Sunshiny Days. It has these beautiful tropical colors and prints and went perfectly with the Tropical Squidgies. I cut three different designs into sizes that fit with the sketch. I then layered them up and adhered them together. I grabbed a piece of pink grosgrain ribbon that matched the flower and tied it around the entire card. I taped it down and then adhered the entire piece onto A2 size white card base. My finishing touches were some enamel dots and a little bit of glossy accents on the girls sunglasses. Here's a little close up of the details:

Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is to use a Stamping Bella "CUT IT OUT" die on your card or simply ANY DIE OR PUNCH you are inspired to use. I hope you join along and create something with us! Have a wonderful weekend and I'll be back soon!
