Is she a stunner or what! Those little Greenbean Baby teacup girls just make my heart melt and little Tabitha is no exception. Actually, I think she is my fav so far. And I love the smooth sleek 'do' on this one!
As always, she was stamped on Bella's bestest paper and coloured with copic markers. Some pencil was used to shade the cup and to create the shading and grounding around the image. I stamped the teacup a second time and coloured it to pop it out on the final image. I LOVE the dimension! The little bow in her hair was also popped up. To finish it off I added some liquid applique to the 'stars' on the cup and black glaze pen to her eyes and a glass pearl to her bow. She is a cutie, that's for sure!
Were you at Scrapfest on the weekend? I had soooooooooooo much fun meeting and greeting other bloggers and peeps who dropped in to say hi, or that they read my blog...and CraftyCath who introduced herself...thank you! I love to meet those mystery people who ALWAYS leave the sweetest comments!
AND...I came home sooooooo broke! In an impulse (yes I have an issue with that) I purchased a Lifestyle crafts Letterpress. It will be shipped and I cannot wait to start playing with it. I have read mixed reviews on it, but I always figure if at least half the people can get it working, and the other half can't...that 'other half' must be doing something wrong....and i'm not the type of person who allows myself to be beaten by a craft tool so I have faith! Besides, that 'other' half might be wanting to print hundreds of invitations or something and come on...it IS just a craft tool and likely not meant to stand up to hard repeated use. The other thing that intriques me is that I have found a couple places on the net that will make custom plates! NOW, if only I could find time to learn how to make them that could be really fun! ...drat that day job! ...i don't think I've said it recently so it was due time.
My other really FUN purchase (besides all the bella rubber I came home with) was the Quickutz paper doll and accessory set. I almost FAINTED when I saw the cards on display. These are just FUN... plain old FUN!...like project runway on paper and makes you feel like a kid playing with those sticker books, or paper dolls and turning them into something useful.
These are the couple I put together yesterday while I was playing around with it. OMG...I want to make a MILLION OF THEM cause there are so many more accessories in the kits that I didn't use and want to, but I again, I have soooooooooo much paper and sooooooooooo little time! DRAT that day job!
Tonight I'll be working on my submission for Bellarific Friday...remember Mother's Day is our theme and with such a FANTASTIC release now is the time to try and get lucky with some extra bella bucks in your account. Make a card AND leave a comment and might get lucky and win twice!
