A sketchy Friday

Not sketchy in that weird kinda don't come near me sorta way, but a good way, as in a card sketch! I will also say that Chicken's sketch really stumped me and I could not find ONE single image in my stash of HUNDREDS that jumped out and said PICK ME! So I flipped it, and changed the dimensions slightly....still counts, doesn't it? Oh well, make it work and ask forgiveness later is what I always say! And that philosophy comes to the rescue in the Information Technology world a LOT!

Let me introduce you to Abby, I have never coloured her before and she was looking so 'naked' having never been inked. And I also had a real desire to colour up a Green Bean Baby this week. 

I matched her up with one of my current fav's, Basic Grey Sweet Threads, stamped her on bella's BESTEST paper and coloured her with copic markers. But not before paper piecing her dress which I also added some dimension with pencil shading. The grass and blue shading was also pencil but these are the copics I used:

E0000, 00, 21, 11, R20, YR000, 01, 02
E30, 31, 33, 35, 53, 55, 42, 44
G20, 40, 12, YG03, 25, R000, 00, 01
RV000, 00, 10, 11, 32, 14, 21, 23

Just a bit of sewing and some glitter on her dress finished it up!

Now I've got some updates...there will be NO bellarific friday next week due to a Canadian holiday and Emily taking some time off (although I'm sure for her it will mean sitting at home cutting rubbah!). BUT....I'm gonna give you a TWO WEEK heads up on our JULY 8TH challenge...that means YOU GET TWO WEEKS TO PREP! And OH MY, are we gonna make it easy on ya! It's all about RIBBON....use a bella image and smack some ribbon on there are you are eligible to enter. You could win yourself some bella bucks and be in the company of the BESTEST peanut gallery on the web. Nothing makes Emily and us Babes happier than seeing LOTS of gorjusness on Fridays.

BUT THERE IS MORE! If you are a weekly player, or never played before and are looking for something to do next Friday you should check out the STAMPING BELLA FORUM because they will be discussing their VERY FIRST bella book club book. Maybe you read it? Maybe you didn't and you wanna know about it. I'm not gonna chime in because I don't read...hmmmm, maybe I'll have my own little discussion out there on what did you cook? what wine did you drink with it? and what mixed media product you just can't live without? What do ya think? Should I? We'll see! Would you be interested? Let me know and if there is interest I'll make myself available one evening to chat about the things Lindabella loves and answer any of your questions to the best of my ability.

Later, Linda.
