For this special hop I decided to use Knitabella and make a card for a VERY special friend who has taken up knitting! I've had this stamp FOREVER and for some reason it always kind of scared me to attempt to color it, but because it was PERFECT for the occasion I forged ahead and tackled it. You know what....it wasn't that bad, actually, it wasn't bad AT ALL! I started by colouring bella's dress and chair with a solid very light color of copic markers and added just a minimal amount of shading with markers. I made sure it was thoroughly dry, then added deeper shading over the copics with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I stamped the knit happens sentiment in versafine deep lagoon to match the color scheme and pulled out that trusty bow easy AGAIN! That's it! I had a joy making it and I hope Colleen gets some joy in receiving it! NOTE: the sentiment may be discontinued because I can't find it on the website!
FINALLY....DO NOT FORGET TO LEAVE A COMMENT CAUSE THERE ARE BUCKS TO BE WON ALONG THE WAY! LIKE FOUR $100 BELLA BUCK CERTIFICATES! Three are hidden, and one is random! GOOD LUCK! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY Stamping Bella....we LOVE YOU!
