Bellarific Friday


It's fabulous Friday and that means the Bella Babes have another Bellarific Friday challenge for you! This week, Ebrubella has created these two sketch variations for our challenge. You can check out all the creations from the Babes over at Blogabella, and I hope also that we'll see a LOT of creations from the Sistahood! There's nothing better than a good sketch challenge, so I hope there were a lot of Sistahs playing along!
I chose to create the square version of the sketch, with the circle element within the square using the Curly Silhouette flower, and the Eclectic Butterfly on Print stamps. My sentiment comes from the "Sadie" by Mo Manning stamp set. I stamped the Curly Silhouette flower on the left side with Versamark ink, embossed with clear embossing powder, then sponged Ranger Distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Dried Marigold and Wild Honey around the image. I then cut out the circle, and stamped the Eclectic Butterfly using black Staz-On ink. The circle was distress on the edges and sponged with Antique Linen ink, then I also added a few spritzes of Perfect Pearls mist for a shimmer (that unfortunately doesn't show up in the photo). I embellished with some silly-stiches, pearls and a Prima flower.

If you missed the chance to play along this week, why not join us next week? The challenge is Christmas in July, so get out your Stamping Bella Christmas images and get inky! Remember, there's always some Bella Bucks available to one person who plays along, and to one person who leaves comments on the Bellarific Friday post! These days, who can afford to pass up the chance to win some spending moolah? :)

Happy Friday and happy stamping!
