Kettos in the House

Hi everyone!  TGIF!  🙂

Since their release, I’ve been eyeing Stamping Bella‘s Kettos.  I was finally able to get a couple.  Here’s my first.

Happy Thoughts


This is Tatiana.  She normally has two more of those ponytail-ish things coming out of the top of her head, but I decided to leave those off this time.  If you look closely, you might be able to see where I dropped an uncapped brown marker on her face.  And in another spot, you might also notice where I started to shade/outline using the wrong (darker than intended) marker.  I seem to be having a lot of issues lately with my stamping.  I’m not sure what’s up with that. 

As I mentioned, I used Copics to color the image, then used a black gel pen to add some shiny 3-d dots onto the flower, her pants and shoes.  A little yellow brad adds a bit more dimension to the flower.

I have a few more (ok…several more) new Stamping Bella images that I hope to have time to use very soon.  🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

    What you talkin’ about – your colouring is great – if you didn’t mention little bloopers, we wouldn’t even notice. Absolutely love that DP – looks like it was designed for Tatiana – gonna have to get me some. Have a great day!
