Matilda's swing

     Have you been enjoying the Stamping Bella sneakie peeks this week.  Lots more to come so make sure you keeping checking in at Blogabella so you don't miss anything.
     It's Bellarific Friday so today I am sharing the card I made for last weeks challenge.  It was a sketchy poo.

     I've used the adorable Matilda on her swing.  She's colored with Copics and I added some white gel pen dots to her hat.  This set also includes a stamp of grass that you can use underneath the swing.  Super cute!  I hated to have her just hanging there so I added a tree branch and some leaves with die cuts.  I finished the card up with a vellum sentiment embossed in Liquid Platinum.

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, R22, R30
hair Y11, Y21, YR23
clothing BG11, BG13, E93, E95, E97
swing E31, E33, E35, E37, E39
shading W1, B0000

     The new challenge being offered today is....Valentines!!!  Use any in-store Stamping Bella stamp to create something Valentiney and mail it to Em at (emily at stampingbella dot com) with Bellarific Friday challenge and the date of the challenge in the subject line by Thursday evening.  Don't forget that Gracie is our January Stamp of the month and if you want her at 20% off you'd better hurry.
     You can check out all the inspiration from my sistah's and the SB Sistahood over at Blogabella.
     Be blessed!
