Bellarific Circles



Happy Bellarific Friday! This week we are going around the bend and creating Circle cards :) These are always fun to make for something a little bit different. I used the cute Curly Ewe stamp from Stamping Bella to create this sweet circle and I was aiming for Easter-ish but I think that it ended up more like a mocking Valentine ;)




I used up some scraps for this card and combined some old SU paper with some My Mind's Eye polka dots. The Ewe was water coloured with Tombow Markers and a Water brush and shaded with my super fave chalk pencil.



So are you ready for next week's challenge? It's a sketch by Ebru and it's perfect for those tall images that you have been itching to use :) Don't forget to email your creation to Emily (emily@stampingbella.com) before Thursday evening to get in to win a chance at some bella bucks! Have fun and thanks for coming by today :D

Kim this is gorgeous! You could really make this lamb baaa! Lol! What a sweetheart this little one is and so adorable. Just love what you have done with this card. Love the shape and the design is amazing. What kind of chalk pencil did you use here to acheive the white of the fleece? Just curious! Thanks so much for inspiring me again. Big Hugs.

@ CanadianScraps43 - I don't know how to respond to questions via my blog so I will write it here :) The chalk pencil that I refer to is black and that's what I used to shade. The white that you saw is actually the white of the paper what wasn't water coloured over and was left as an intentional highlight :D

Kim as always, this card is stunning. I totally got your Valentine sentiment ... my daughter whines every year on this day. She would love this card. The heart pins, shabby chic ribbon and awesome coloring came together so nicely!
