Denby Inspired

I love Denby dishes, I have them, but totally regret not buying the mix and match nice bright colors. In my heart that is what I really wanted but my little conservative voice said..."NO, you might hate them in a few years!"...why did I listen.


Needless to say, when I saw Stamping Bella's CUPPA TEA image I knew it had to be nice rich funky colors and when I stumbled upon this scrap of Basic Grey Indian Summer paper it was just the inspiration I needed. In keeping with my resolution to use more sketch challenges I also worked this one into Mojo Monday challenge 120. It came together quite easily! The tea cups were coloured with copic markers and the ground shading was done with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Keeping the nestie in place, I also sponged the edges with Versamagic Bisque pigment ink.

Now for some Bella business:

Did you know our Bellarific Fridays are back? The challenge this week is Back to School so be sure to get your entry in to Emily by Thursday at 5pm to see your card up in lights on her blog and be entered into a chance at winning some bella bucks.

And finally, did you know there is a new Babe on the block! Jodi Collins! She won the Bella Birthday Challenge to be a guest babe for January, but Emily couldn't let her go! Once you see her cards, you'll quickly know why! Be sure to go show her some love!

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by.
