Once again, I had to play with the Bellarific Friday Sketch. This one was a doozy for me. Rather than put the image on the vertical rectangle panel, I just *had* to insist of inking the long horizontal panel. I am so stubborn sometimes!
I tried to show my 100 yen store find...this yummy gathered black ribbon! It is right under the green panel. I liked the look of the black on black. You can see it better in real life. :)
And the sketch:
Additionally, I needed a card for DS' friend. This is also based on the sketch, but helps to meet another challenge my Ocean's 11 Blog Group is doing. Amy challenged us to pair 3 colors we would not normally use together. Blue, Red, Green. Not normal for me; totally guided by that patterned paper!!
Funny...I was so limited in this card because of DS. He did NOT want me to embellish it! I guess 9 year old boys aren't so much into the bling and shimmer, now are they?! I did sneak some Liquid Glass onto the balloon, which he loved. :)
Hey, and how about my ability to use my scraps?! The pattern paper is all from the scrap pile and I dusted off the deckle scissors for the sentiment! Seriously, those scissors are circa 2001. Scary. But I think it worked!
As a side note, Stampingbella.com is having a release today! Woo Hoo! I am in love with the sneak peeks, so I can only image how over the moon I will be when I see it all!
