BELLARIFFIC FRIDAYS ARE BACK!!!

Can you tell I am a little excited about this?! Em and Nicky are doing the challenges and this colour inspiration challenge was defiantly a challenge for me - apparently I am not a purple fan because I don't have ribbon/bling in that colour; strange I guess I now know what I will be shopping for :)

S-T-E-L-L-A having her fix (I always say it that way makes me laugh just like in the movie that now escapes my memory - hmm if you know it can you tell me!) is inked with memento black and coloured with copics, for her crown and wand I added some Atyou Spica Glitter. I paper pieced her dress, shoes, coffee cup and the center of the back of the chair - the center of the chair is done with core'dinations paper while teh dress is ds paper from crate paper. She is cut out with nesties; I love that the Stamping Bella images work so easily with the nesties - they are definitely one of my favourites!

The background is a piece of core'dinations paper that I embossed with a sizzix plate then sanded to get the different shading, it sanded great on a flat surface but you want a piece of scrap paper underneath it because it is messy! The patterned paper is stitched on and because I didn't have any ribbon I used a cuttlebug border embossing folder with the core'dinations paper. I again sanded down the paper then I added some glitter in the center. To finish off the piece I added some prima flower and in the middle are daisy crystal flowers which I put onto the primas using the Kajinker and mounted with pop up glue dots.

This was a fun but very challenging Bella challenge for me - I am excited to see what Em & Nicky come up with next!! Click here to see all the other great cards!

Thanks for stopping by & have a Bellariffic day :)

Great job Dana! Love the line of purple "faux" ribbon - looks great. Isn't S-T-E-L-L-A from the movie A Streetcar Named Desire?
