Getting Inky....

Happy Friday - today's Bellariffic Fridays challenge was a sketch


I took some liberties with the sketch - I made my card a standard 41/4 x 51/2 instead of a square card because Lesliebella was just here for a visit (so was Motzabella) and when Lesliebella was here we pulled out all my inks, texture pastes, stencils, and sprays and played  - here's a  picture of my hands Lesliebella was a little nervous at first....

The sentiment I used for my card is from Stamping Bella's Uptown Girls Beatrice and Barbara are Besties.  

The sentiment is stamped with gathered twigs distress ink then embossed.  I then used the distress inks to shade around the sentiment.  For my card I made the background using glass bead texture paste with a stencil on kraft paper.  When it first dried we didn't Love it - really we didn't even Like it.  Then I added the distress inks (worn lipstick and gathered twigs) and then sprayed the base with Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst spray in Creme Brûlée and WOW what a difference!

Please stop by Bloggabella to see the rest of the babes creations.  Next weeks Bellariffic Friday challenge an Inspiration challenge - just take a peek at the photo and use any current Stamping Bella image and send your card to Em by Thursday to be included on Bloggabella 





Thanks for stopping by!
