Sweet Sunday Sketch 270

Happy Sunday today's Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC270) had me stumped - Karen likes to do that to me - throw curves....


For my card I used a sentiment from Riley & Co Funny Bones line.  The image is stamped with Hero Arts Ombre ink then cut with MFT circles pierced die-namic.  The DP is Basic Greys indie bloom.  I free cut the "curve" since I don't have a die - yep that was the challenge making it look somewhat straight!!

Make A Wish

Today's Bellariffic Friday challenge was a sketch.  For my card I used one of Stamping Bella's sweet Hoppy Poppy images.


Make a Wish Hoppy Poppy is stamped with memento tuxedo black ink onto bella's bestest white card stock and coloured with pencils blended with mineral spirits.  The DP is Lawn Fawn pint size Beachside.  I added some sparkle to the candles with a wink of stella pen and on her polka dots with an orange spica pen.


I kept the colour theme on the inside of the card

Colourful Days...

Happy Friday and Happy Long Weekend to all the Canadian sistahs!!  This weeks challenge was "one layer wonder" - yep a total challenge for me!


For my card I used Uptown Girl Abigail the Artist.  The image is stamped on bella's bestest white card stock and coloured with copics.  I added some shading using pencils blended with mineral spirits.  To add the look of a border I sponged the edges with picked raspberry distress ink.  Now I didn't count my card base as layer....

I did the same layer on the inside of the card for the sentiment

LuLu

We have a new babe on the team and I'm so excited I've been a HUGE fan of her work since I started this whole blogging thing - Michele Boyer is our newest babe!

Today's Bellariffic Fridays challenge was a colour challenge AND all the babes are using May's Stamp of the Month LULU loves Poppies which is on sale 20% off for the month of May!!

I have to admit I coloured the image once, then remembered the colour challenge so I had to do a redo!


Lulu loves Poppies is stamped on mixed media paper with staz on and coloured with a mixture of water colour pencils, distress inks and tombow markers.  I shaded around the image with antique linen distress ink.  The DP is Websters pages  Postcard from Paris.



Please stop by Blogabella to see the rest of the babes and sistah's creations.  If you want to play along with next weeks challenge just use a current stamping bella image and email your card to Em by Thursday to be included on Blogabella.
