Bellarific Fridays are always exciting just because it's fun, BUT I have other news too! You may notice I changed my blog picture...YES, I'm about 3 years older, and I have a bit of a tan thanks to my new floating pool lounger. But why did I change that picture? Not because I really wanted to post an older looking me (I like the other pic MUCH better), but I needed a recent photo because I will be one of the Creative Experts at the Minneapolis Scrapfest at the Mall of America in September. I still won't believe it is real until I actually get there. Paula, Emily and I will be there and while Emily manages the Bella booth, Paula and I will be instructing classes. When we aren't in class, we will likely be at the bella booth, but only if Emily chains us there to keep us out of the stores! Just a warning Emily, I have already plotted out the stores I want to go to. And my gosh...do you know there is an Aquarium there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyhooooooo....if you live in the area, don't be shy....stop by and say hi! I'd LOVE to meet you!
Up next, my Bellarific Friday card using ribbon. I was still in a Ketto kinda mood so decided to colour up Ivy Ketto, she is one of my fav's of the Ketto bunch.
As always, I stamped her with memento black ink on bella's BESTEST paper, paired her up with Basic Grey Sweet threads and coloured her with the following copic markers. No pencil on this card! SHOCKING!
E000, 00, 21, 23, 17, 97, 99
G05, 07, 28, B0000, 000
R20, RV13, 14, 25, BV23, Y15, YR04
TIP! Because I coloured the blue background with markers, I started there first then coloured the main image.
Next week our challenge will be Bella's or Stella's! Just use one of them, maybe pick a sketch from many of the great sketch challenges out there and see your card up in lights on Emily's blog!
