It's Ketto Time!

Welcome to this week's Bellarific Friday featuring Ketto stamps :D I took the opportunity to feature Anise Ketto and pair her up with some Basic Grey Kiyoshi designer papers. I'm thrilled with how she turned out and I even managed to channel a little bit of Lindabella and Paulabella with their choices of soft pastel backgrounds. I often choose the brighter colours for my cards but this soft pink was perfect for making this little ketto, pop :D

If you are hopping around all the bella's blogs and have come to mine first then great! If not, I should have you all know that Paulabella must have copied my Ketto because I had mine done first ;) I was for once in my life a head of schedule and completed my card on Sunday, so... pfffft on you miss Paula ;) Ah, the benefits of living on the west coast and seeing the Easterner's posts ahead of time! LOL

I have been having a ball playing with oodles of challenges lately so I took the opportunity to play along with this week's SFYTT challenge. The sketch was perfect for what I needed and it took me a little bit out of my comfort zone with the whole tilted could say that I am a huge fan of symmetrical ;)

For this Ketto, I water coloured her with my tombow markers (surprise, surprise...I know ;) and then added my shadows and sponging. I love the whimsy of stickles so of course I had to pile some of those on too, after all...what's a fairy without sparkly wings?

Thanks for coming by today and don't forget about next week's bellarific sketch challenge provided by our very own Elaineabella. All you have to do is make a card and email it to Emily by Thursday at 5:00 and you can see yourself featured on the Bella Blog :D

Wow, this is gorgeous! Love the colors Kim very vibrant. Okay, so the last 2 weeks Cath and I choose the same image, now this week it is you, Paula and I - too funny! and I had mine done last sunday as well!
Your take on the layout is great!

Pauline said...

Paula another awesome card. Love your layout and those rounded corners on a square card - I need to try that! Perfect fall colors. After seeing Cath's post, I thought Whew, we didn't do the same image again this week, then I come upon yours and Kim's - too funny!

Kim she is so lovely. I really love all the layering you have done on this card and the ribbon wrapped at the edge is an awesome idea. The colors you picked to her are beautiful.

I'm lovin the kaleidiscope of color on this card. It might not have been in your comfort zone but girl it's Beeeeautiful. Wish I had a knack for throwing colors together as well as you. Now I know I need to add this stamp to my wish list.
