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 panel...you 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
