In my own quiet way, I thought I'd ring in the new year with a card that just oozes with celebration of another kind. This is from Stamping Bella's latest release called sneakysneakybirthdaybella. While I was sorting thru my 12x12 papers the other day I came across these from the Girls' Paperie On Holiday line and thought they would be perfect for this image. It reminds me of a patterned rug and striped wallpaper!
I used mostly pencils on the chair but did start with a base of B0000, BG000 and BG10 (or 11?). The hats were all done using copics...and LOTS of glitter!!! The penants were cut from one of the pieces of DP which actually HAD penants on it, so it really wasn't my idea to 'create' them. Then I glued them onto a piece of cotton twine and adhered them to the card with Helmar Liquid Scrapdots so I could gently push them into place with the 'tails' popping out further than the tops. The sentiment is also Stamping Bella which probably came with another stamp. I really wanted to use Surprise! but didn't have it in my stash. HMPH...it will be going into my next order for sure and I just might gently remove the one that is there and replace it! Yes, I HAVE done that!
Our regular Bellarific Fridays will resume on January 14th and as soon as I find out what the challenge it I'll let you know! Thinking of Bellarific Fridays, have you been to Emily's blog lately? She has been a busy blogger in the last couple days revealing her goals for 2011 and the new filofax system that is gonna get her there! Stop by and give her some encouragement!
