Sketch Challenge: Stampin' Up! Bella & Friends

Good morning stampers!  Today, we have a Sketch Challenge. Use any stamps, your favorite paper and colors, but use this Sketch as inspiration!

I'm featuring the Bella & Friends stamp set by Stampin' Up! as well as using the Watercoloring Technique and Simple Sepia technique with the Blender Pen.

Card Instructions

  • Card base is Soft Suede.
  • Adhere piece of Serene Scenary DSP using SNAIL Adhesive.
  • Stamp the greeting in Chocolate Chip.
  • Stamp the Bella and Friends image and Chocolate Chip and immediately color the puppy using the Simple Sepia technique (using the Blender Pen, pull in the color from the Chocolate Chip edges to color the puppy).
  • Then watercolor the balloon and bird using a Blender Pen as well (balloon is Soft Sky, the bird is in Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight).
  • Add Lace to the bottom ledge.
  • Adhere the focal panel using SNAIL Adhesive.
  • Add rhinestones to Bella's collar.
  • Use Crystal Effects on the balloon to add more texture and depth. LET DRY :D
  • You're done!
