Take Two....

So I spent Saturday afternoon working on a card with the intention of posting it ASAP.  I was happy to be in my stamp room since the weather outside was crappy (snowing horizontally because of the winds) and hubby was away so made myself  a cup of tea and started colouring  - it was a perfect afternoon UNTIL....  I went to add an embellishment to my card (product shall remain nameless since it no longer has a place here) and squeezed the tube, nothing.  Squeezed a little harder and wham the entire top came off - I had the stuff EVERYWHERE!!!  Those of you who know me know I had a wee tantrum - threw out the image &  the produce & said that's it not colouring it again.  Well later on after watching a movie I came back and decided the paper was picked out, the markers were still on my desk lets give it another whirl....


I stamped Kissy by Mo Manning from Stamping Bella onto  bella's bestest paper and coloured her with copics.  For the shading I used prisma pencils (those recommended by Paula & Linda- when they speak I listen!!)  I added some glamour dust glitter on her skirt and for the the flowers I used some mermaid stickles.  In the centre of the large flowers I used some black enamel accents.  The ds paper is basic greys Kioshi and I used this weeks Sweet Stop sketch (SSS90)

Don't forget this weeks Bellariffic Fridays challenge is a sketch - email your cards to Em by Thursday to be included and you could win Bella Bucks!!

Thanks for stopping by - have a great Sunday
