Sweet Mavis

Hope you are all having a great week - it's warmed up here (-5C is warmed up!) and they say we will be cracking 0 this weekend!!  

Today I was able to play along with Karen G's Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC100).  I need a birthday card for a friend in Toronto, and she is a cat person (naturally her cats always came to see me when I was at her house because I'm allergic!!) so I inked up one of Stamping Bella's sweet Mavis images by Christy Croll.  Speaking of sweet images have you seen the sneak peek new images over on Bloggabella?! 


Mavis has a Daisy is stamped with mementos ink onto bella's bestest paper and coloured with caran d'ashe pencils (I LOVE these pencils!!)  I paper pieced her dress and the flowers.  In the centre of the flowers I used clear rhinestones which I coloured with copics.  The DS paper is basic greys Marjolaine.

This weeks Bellariffic Fridays theme is FREE FORM so any Stamping Bella image works - email your card to Em by Thursday to be included and you could win some Bella Bucks (which will come in handy based on the sneak peeks!!)

Thanks so much for stopping by - have a great day
