As with all my uptown girls, she is on a large 5x7 card, stamped with memento ink on bella's BESTEST paper and coloured with copic markers. I added some shading with prismacolor pencils and gamsol and they really did come in handy on the candy. After I coloured it with markers, it was too pink to match my paper...No worries!....a bit of some deeper orange on there with pencil blended out with gamsol altered the colour perfectly.
What did ya think of the release and Emily's new artists? It was a great release with a little something to please everyone I thought. Now me, I am a little smitten with little matilda and romana, but LOVE tHE cool sophistication of the Jane Davenport line. Can't wait to get my hands on them and hopefully you can't wait to see them all coloured up soon.
Next week we are taking the pressure off and going back to a sketch. I really think we need a shout out to our fantastic Ebru for making these for us so go give her some love this week. Remember to upload your image to the Stamping Bella SCS forum using the keyword BELLARIFFIC0312. And to make our gallery the BEST on SCS, add the keyword StampingBella.
Now for a puppy update, Bessie had her CCL (equivalent to a human ACL) surgery yesterday and is resting comfortably at home. Her spirit is totally broken because she is an active ole' gal and I'm sure doesn't quite understand why she can't run and jump and play and bark at all the dog walkers in 'her' field nextdoor. On a good note, when I came home from work today she perked right up to see me and managed to eat something. Two weeks of restricted movement, then we can start trying to get her to use the leg again. I love my sassy little dog and can't wait till she has her old personality back. (i say that now, but I may regret that in a few weeks when I'm trying to get something done and she shoves a toy in my leg).
