What's Brewin'?



Good morning! What better way to start your morning that with a cuppa java. Don't have one? No worries! I have one brewing up for you in a style that's orange and blue and cute all over :D I used my Percolator Circle stamp from Stamping Bella to create this vibrant and fun card.

It's a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" card that was water coloured with tombow markers and a water brush and I did some cheating shading with my chalk pencil - it's kind of my new favourite thing to do at the moment. For the center of the percolator I added a butterscotch sundae bauble to add a touch of whimsy and to cover up the obscenely pink center of the flower that I got a little carried away on ;) Gotta love a well placed embellishment to hide those boo boos :D




Don't forget that the babes are back this week with a Valentine's Bellarific Challenge for you. Any Stamping Bella Stamps put together in Valentine's fashion will do so off you go and start creating! Don't forget to email Emily (emily@stampingbella.com) your creation by Thursday so that you can be included in a chance to win some Bella Bucks :D
