Ramona is sending some love

This weeks theme is POLKA DOTS and there is NOTHING I love better than polka dots, unless maybe I match them up with stripes or plaids...neither of which I did here, but it still makes me smile.

And REMEMBER, link up your cards to our Splitcoast forum using the keyword BELLAIRIFFIC0812 to be entered into this weeks draw for some bucks.

For my card I picked Stamping Bella's Ramona Fishing from a recent release and since there were already a couple of these coloured up GORJUSLY I didn't want to look like a copycat so I tried to change up my layout a bit. I was pretty happy with my result but I will admit, it took me FOREVER to get that string on there but no pain, no gain....I love the texture!


I used my usual memento ink and bella's BESTEST paper, pairing it up YES AGAIN with the Miss Caroline MME paper...I can't get enough of it. These are the copics I used, but I did finish it up with a bit of pencil.

She is SUPER adorable!! I love the way you cut around the fishing stick to tie your string. Very clever in deed. Now I hate to beg but...I need guidance, tutorial guidance on how you make your shading "around your image" smooth out so well. It blends so smoothly. I know you hate tutorials but a girl has to ask what a girl has to ask. . .

Hi Linda.....nice seeing you yesterday.....and yes you look amazing with the new hair and those rockin boots..... This is one of my new fav images....really like how you put the rod and heart outside of the rectangle of the image. I love that look...but have never tried it. Hmmm maybe a class at the Pickle!
