Happy Bellarific Friday! This week's challenge was to use any Stamping Bella stamp and create a Valentine card and I took on the challenge in a rather small form...a lunch box Valentine for my daughter :)
I combined the Little Peep's Heart stamp with the largest of my Spellbinders Classic and Scalloped Rectangle dies to create this mini, almost artist trading card sized top fold card. I water coloured the background with some re-inkers, and then used my tombows and water brush for the little girl. I paper pieced the heart with some My Mind's Eye polka dot paper and then sponged it with some rose ink for the shading. To finish it off, I added a rolled flower and popped a lemonade bella bauble into the center and combined the flower with some Martha Stewart leaf punchies.
Thank for coming by today and for those of you who want to play along in next week's Bellarific Challenge here is your challenge: Circle Shaped Cards. That means any Stamping Bella images, colours and sketches welcome...really anything your heart desires :D Please remember to email Emily (firstname.lastname@example.org) your creation by Thursday for a chance to win some bella bucks and for your card to appear over at Bloggabella :D
