Feeling GREEEN?!

Wow it's Friday already so that means it's time for Bellariffic Fridays (BELLARIFFIC1012) and this weeks theme was to use GREEN on your card.  

I decided not to go with at  St. Patty's image or a turtle tot instead I went with Arthur of Arthur and Annie (maybe because I used Annie on Sunday so I felt they needed equal time?!)


The image is stamped as always with memento tuxedo black ink onto bella's bestest paper (cream) and coloured with copics.   I paper pieced his shirt and shorts with the dp I used on the card; EP this & that.  The layout is this weeks Freshly Made sketch (FMS26). I added some shading around the image with pencils and gamsol and added some Olive ribbon.  The image itself is also paper pieced on the cream background because I somehow got a black dot on the original background & try as I might I couldn't get it out. Then I tried to tell myself it wasn't noticeable (really a speck) but you know the eye just kept going there. I didn't want to recolour him so I went with good old paper piecing.

Now there's LOTS going on at Stamping Bella this coming week - Em has a ginormous release coming up and she is showing some teasers on Bloggabella.  Starting Monday the Babes will have some sneak peeks of the release.  

Next weeks Bellariffic Fridays theme is another awesome sketch (BELLARIFFIC1112).
