Bella "BABE" Challenge


Hey, everyone! The Bella Babes have something new for you! We thought we'd have some fun not only every Friday for our beloved Bella-riffic challenges, but also to throw out a little extra fun for those valued members of our Forumabella, so beginning today, and every month on the 15th thereafter, there is MORE fun to be had in Bella-land!


Our kick-off challenge is a Bella "BABE" challenge: to use Bellas And Bring on the Embellishments!

Any embellishments will do, as long as you use more than one! We want to see you guys have FUN with this- pull out your favorites from your stash...or perhaps something fabulous you just got? There are no rules other than that, and you MUST use Stamping Bella Stamps! The PRIZE is a $20 gift voucher that will be awarded to ONE lucky participant and will be randomly drawn at the end of the challenge!

You have until June 14th at NOON CST to link up your creations on the new thread in our Forumabella...so good luck and can't WAIT to see your "BABE" projects! (*Note, the challenge will be up at 12:00 noon CST!)
For my card, I used the Mojo Monday sketch #190 from this past week, and pulled out my long-neglected cuppacakeabella to create this birthday card. My Bella is colored on Bella's Bestest white cardstock with Copic markers. And since I just came from taking the Intermediate Copic Certification class on Friday, I tried to incorporate some of what I learned into my coloring. One thing we really worked on in the class was creating cast shadows on our images. So, how do you think I did with my cast shadow under Bella's booty onto the cupcake? Yes? It's a work in progress, for sure and not something I think I'm ever going to be really confident at. I'm definitely more of a diffused-shadow kinda' girl! It's more forgiving and mistakes are better hidden! LOL I'm not really happy with my cast shadow from the cupcake either, but again... work in progress! The papers I used here are the Pink Plum collection from Crate Paper.

So be sure and stop over at Forumabella after 12:00 noon CST today, check out the challenge and play along!

Thanks for stopping by!
