Rain dance

     It's time for another Bellarific Friday.  Today the team is showcasing our Stamp of the Month Uptown Girl Lolly and her Brolly.  You can get her this month for 20% off.  YAY!!
     Last weeks challenge was Free Form.  For my card I started by masking off where the blue stripe is with some Frog tape.  I used Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress inks to create the ombre gradient.  Next I used some embossing paste and a stencil to create the texture on the right hand side of the card.  The sentiment was stamped onto vellum with Versamark and heat embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder.
     Lolly is colored with Prismas.  I stamped her twice and cut out the umbrella, daisy, and her boots for some 3-D layering.

     Next weeks challenge is a 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.  You can enter your project in the Inlinkz over at Blogabella or 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!

  3. As always Tracy a stunning card ! Fab x

  4. Oh, man, this is amazing, Tracy! LOVE your prisma coloring and love the 3D effect you got with all the layering. She looks amazing fussy cut and overlapping the inked panel, and the embossing is so fabulous, too. Looks like she is perched next to a brick wall. There's a sense of a scene, without being a literal scene at all... and that is just genius!

  5. Super card!! I love the embossed brick texture and ombre strip to show off your cutie image :) Have a great weekend!
