It can only get better?! Not sure there's SNOW in our forecast!!

Happy Friday!  Today's Bellariffic Fridays was an awesome sketch for our super talented Lindabella!!


I went with Mo Manning's sweet design Jill is Two.  I love this image and her sweet face, I was at my mom's this week when I coloured her up and she loved it - I think she remembers me making this same pose many times!!!  The image is stamped with mementos ink onto bella's bestest paper and coloured with copics.  I used a purple atyou spica pen on her barrettes and a yellow atyou spica pen on the crowns  on her dress.  For her shoes I used a black glaze pen.

I usually pick my paper first, then my image then colour so this was a very different card for me to make.  I found it liberating to colour with whatever colours I wanted, but I must admit it was daunting to try and find paper when I came home - so I just used cs.  For all you girls out there who colour then put their cards together - do you store you ds paper by colours? Or do you just know what patterned paper you own?  I have a few more images coloured from my trip so I hope they go together easier!

Dana - this is wonderful! How liberating to just color. I usually have to have the layout and paper all picked out so I can see the card come together. And yes, I store my DP by color. Unless they are a pack and then it's stored with like themes...Christmas, Baby, Basic Grey, Cosmo Cricket etc. But I love you back to basics cardstock card. Clean and simple!

I always colour first and pick paper after...i store my dsp by theme (halloween, xmas, bday, etc). But if i have no dsp that matches then i just use cardstock with a cuttlebug folder:)
