Brittany the Birthday Girl

     Welcome to the first Stamping Bella Bellarific Friday of 2016.  Today the Babes are featuring this month's Stamp of the Month, Uptown Girl Brittany the Birthday Girl.  She can be purchased at a 20% discount anytime during January.
     For my card I colored her with Copics on a large panel and added hand drawn pen lines with a ruler down the sides.  Her dress is covered in Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen with Stickles on the ruffles.  For the sentiment, I stamped it on some cardstock and hand cut it.  The balloon was die cut, highlighted with a white gel pen and covered in Glossy Accents.  Then I tied the two together with some bakers twine and popped them up on foam.  This pretty lady is winging her way through the mail to a dear friend.

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, R22, R30
hair E21, E23, E25
dress BG70, BG72, BG75, N1, N3
cake E41, E42, R22, R46, N1

     Next weeks challenge is to create a project using this awesome Mojobella 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.
     You can find all the wonderful DT creations as well as those who participated in the sketch challenge over at Blogabella.
     Be blessed!
