The Babe's are back!



TGIF! The Bella Babes are back and ready to take on 2011 with this week's cards :) Today we were challenged  to make a card based on this sketch:


...and because I made the sketch, that means that I can fudge it a little doesn't it? No? Oops ;) While I was busy making this card I didn't have my sketch sitting in front of my and I accidentally made the triangle panel cover a little more of the card than in the original sketch. Oh, well.

I used Solly 'Tude for the main image and the sentiment Love is in the air from Stamping Bella. I water coloured Solly 'Tude with my tombow markers and a water brush but only cut out and popped up the balloons. I applied hints of glitter to the back drop for just a wee bit of twinkle because twinkles make everyone happy :D

I like the card special the little girl and like how color her in and the colors you use. I always have trouble put color together.

I like the little girl you stamp out and how you color her. I can never put color together. I wish I could learn how.
Thank you

Kim this is fabulous! Love the color combinations, the big shiny heart balloons, her hair. Ok, truth be told I love it all! The sketch was fun and dang, I wish I could interpret one like you do! I also have to tell ya that I've never seen that Bella before and now I'm on the hunt for it. Funny that different images catch our eye until we see them all done up! Thanks!
