Happy Bellarific Friday everyone! Boy are my weeks just flying by. I'm the director for our Vacation Bible School at church this year so I'm up to my ears in preparations for that and whoever tells you that raising puppies in easy is a flat out liar. LOL Those two keep me hopping. I'll share some new pics soon. They've already grown so much.
So.....last weeks challenge was to create a Stamping Bella project that was "anything but a card". I love the Flower Garden stamp AND I love Distress inks. For my bookmark I used one of the Simon Says Stamp Large Tag dies and elongated it by letting it hang off the cutting plate so I could make it long enough for the stamp. I used watercolor paper and stamped the images with Versamark, embossing with SSS white embossing powder.
I pulled out several Distress inks to color the flowers and leaves. The sentiment is from an old Flourishes set. Since I'm using the bookmark in my Bible I thought the words were so VERY appropriate for the greatest love story ever.
Next weeks challenge is this cool sketch.
To play along just use a Stamping Bella image (make sure you use something that's currently in the store stock) and the theme requirements. Get your project photographed and emailed 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. Em offers a $25.00 Bella Bucks prize to one lucky winner every month.
