Bellarific Mavis Journal



Happy Bellarific Friday everyone! Today's challenge was a sketch brought to you by Ebru and I took it and created a little altered soft covered journal. I used my Mavis has a daisy stamp and water coloured her with tombows, sponged the background with baja ink and then coloured the grass in with prisma pencils and gamsol.

I added some leaf punchies from my Martha Stewart punch and used the rolled flower die from MFT to create the little flower. I popped a pomegranate bella bauble into the center to tie in some of the red from the background and then used some twine from the twinery to finish off the corner adornment :)

Next week's challenge is to ink up what you haven't used! That's right ladies, dust 'em off, get 'em inky and take them for a test run! Pretty easy huh? :) As always don't forget to email Em (emily@stampingbella.com) by Thursday evening if you would like a chance to win some bella bucks :D
