Warmest wishes

     It's Bellarific Friday so I'm sharing the card I created for last week's challenge.  This is Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl Quinn in her boots.

     I pulled out a Heidi Swapp stencil to add some snow with modeling paste and a little glitter.  Then I pulled out one of the oldest tools I own, an eyelet setter, and added a couple of eyelets to the sentiment banner.  Don't see those used too much any more do ya?  Her hat has some Liquid Applique puffed up for the rim and tassle and I covered all her buttons with Glossy Accents.

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13
hair E21, E23, E25, E27
scarf and leggings YG03, YG93, YG95, YG97
coat and hat E37, E39, E59, Y28
skirt and boots E71, E74, E79, Y28

     The new challenge is this colorful inspiration photo.

     To play along just use a current in store SB image to create your project.  Then email it to Em by Thursday and she will add you in Friday's Blogabella post.  There are $50.00 worth of Bella Bucks waiting for the monthly winner.
     Have yourself a wonderfully blessed weekend!

  18. OMGosh, SO beautiful! She looks amazing, Tracy! Fabulous coloring, love the puffy/glossy accents, amazing glittery snowfall behind. Love how her scarf goes off the edge, and love your vellum sentiment. It's fun to see a peek of her showing through the vellum. Love, love, love this!

  19. Oh, Tracy, this is one warm and gorgeous gal!! And your coloring on her is absolutely amazing! The richness of your red is stunning along with the beautiful shade of green for her scarf! Just love the "fur" on her cap and the wonderful "snow" with a great layout and perfect DP! Fabulous card! Hugs!
