Color Challenge Bella


My wonderful Secret Sister sent me several Bella images. So today I decided to put them to use. I needed a birthday card for a fellow blogger and wanted to do the Color Challenge on SCS.

I started with my Flowahbella image. I watercolored the dress, hair, body and pot with my Aquapainter. then I used my markers on the flowers. The rose panel looked too plain so I added the little starburst image from Sweet Shapes. I also pooled some Celery ink under her feet to ground her a little. After layering everything and adding ribbon it still looked like something was missing. So I did what all the stampers I admire do.... I added coordinating brads. I finished it off by stamping "happy birthday".

Stamps: flowahbella by Stamping Bella, Birthday Cupcake (sentiment) by katie & co. and Sweet Shapes Inks: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery & So Saffron Paper: Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White Accessories: Saffron Brads, Saffron Grosgrain, Aqua Painter and Coordinating markers
