Hello everyone. Happy Friday! We have a very busy weekend ahead. It’s the end of summer swim season so we have an event tonight, our Divisionals meet (v-e-r-y early, v-e-r-y long) tomorrow…then HOOTIE! Oh my gosh, I’m so excited. I’ll need a nap in between but I cannot wait! It’s been so long! Then Sunday is our banquet. Then I get to organize my son to get back to school. That’s not so much fun. But we have a vacation in there somewhere also so August? It will be gone in a flash.
This week’s challenge with Stamping Bella was to use an image from the latest release. Since the Tiny Townies are my favorite, I chose Tiny Townie with an Elephant. Such an adorable image and perfect sentiment.
After stamping onto Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers, I masked the image and used Taylored Expressions’ new Blender Brushes and lovely Folk Art Tulip stencil to create a softly faded background. To add a bit of sparkle, I adhered a few of Queen & Company‘s purple Jelly Gems Toppings.
NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE
Use any current Stamping Bella image. (No restrictions.) If you’d like, email your card to [email protected] by next Thursday to be featured on the SB blog. By doing so, you’ll also be entered to win some Bella Bucks! All challenge details can be found HERE.
