A thank you card featuring Bella

Tuesday, December 9, 2008

So I got this and some other bella images from a fantastic CTMH sistah Jessica. My first stamped bella image to play with. I was super excited. Unfortunately, I don't own any copics or special pencils so I used my regular markers from CTMH to color the image. I think it looks okay but I'm not sure about the presents. I really didn't know how to color them. Can you tell I really don't own stamps that require coloring? Maybe one day I'll get the hang of it.

Colors used are chocolate, outdoor denim, crystal blue, and dutch blue, from Marjorie's color challenge for the week. I don't think you can tell real well in the card but Bella's shirt is glittered. After I had the card complete but before I put the crystal blue organdy ribbon on, I thought the card looked a little incomplete. I'm super happy with it now after having added the ribbon.

So I'm working out of town for the next couple of weeks which is good but I don't get to come home on my lunch hours and stamp then. So that's a bummer. It is nice to get out of our office though for awhile and be out at our client. Always a change of scenery.

So there is only 16 days until Christmas. Are you ready? I almost am. I just need to get something for Devin. He did give me an idea today of what he might want so now I just need to track that down this weekend.

I hope your Tuesday has been a good one. For me, I'm off to bed. Until next time, take good care.

She's darling! I also use the CTMH markers to color my images in. Vanilla Cream is a great skin color if you like to color their faces and legs in :D And you did great for not having colored very much yet!!! I love the rounded edges you did on the card as well ^_~ Thanks for playing hun!
