Belle of the Ball



I've been a busy stamper today and I'm amazed that I finally accomplished a few cards! The past week and a half I couldn't make a card at all....my mind went completely blank! Fast forward......this Bella Stamp is a gift from my friend Stamper Gail! Thank you Gail, I love this Bella very very much. I haven't decided on a sentiment yet so I left that area blank for now. I stamped my gate image from High Hopes Rubber Stamps and stamped the Bella image separately. After I colored my Bella, I cut out the image and mounted it on top of the gate image with pop dots. The card base is stamped with swirls in Barely Banana Ink.

stamps: Stamping Bella Stamps, the gate is from High Hopes and swirls are from TAC
paper: Papertrey Ink Stampers Select and pieces from my stash
inks: Adirondak Pitch Black and Copic Markers
ribbon from my stash and I also used mini- brad and my corner punch

WOW!!! Look at you, girlie!! Love how you cut out the Bella, and that must've been some intricate cutting being that Bella's a skinny one. Oh gosh!! Love your coloring too!!! You are doing great with your copics. I bet you are loving them, cause they bring "life" into your coloring. Great job!!!

hugs,
Jen
