Bellarific Friday - Halloween

Isn't this little guy just so darn adorable? I created this cutie card for my first Bellarific Friday as a...Bella Babe! Yes, folks it's true :) If you have been to the Stamping Bella blog today then you already know but if not, then I guess I just got to break the good news to you first :D

The fabulous Miss Emily emailed me the other day and invited me to join her amazing team and of course I had to say yes (after I shrieked with joy and bounced around the house a little first ;) So here I am bringing you my King of the Wild Things Halloween Bellarific Challenge card!

I stamped the image 2 times so that I could pop up this little cutie after I water coloured him with my Tombow Markers. I then sponged around the edges with some light brown inks and did the same to the designer papers as well. I did stray from my tombow's a little just to add some shading beneath his feet with my prismas and gamsol and then finished him off by "painting his nails" with a coat of white gel pen ;)  Like usual, I added some texture to the papers and managed to put everything together to fit with Jen Del Muro's SFYTT sketch this week :)

Thanks for coming by today and please pop by the rest of the Bella Babe's blogs to give them a little love too. Wanna know what next week's challenge is? Well, your just going to have to beg...on your knees, while feeding me copious amounts of chocolate. No? Not into that...hmph... well OK. I guess that I can let you all know that next week's challenge is all about Fall Colours. Are you sure you don't want to at least feed me chocolate. Still no? Well a girl can try right? ;)
