AVA BELLA


Morning Everyone,

It's time for another challenge over at As You Like It and this fortnight's theme is to showcase a project using your favourite colouring medium (and don't forget to let us know why).

Mine has to be Copics as these are the pens I started out with and I think I'm just beginning to get the hang of certain groups of colours I can use together, but I don't think I've had many first attempts at an image that's worked!  I always have to have a practice first.  I've tried watercolour pencils but haven't the patience or time to stick with them so Copics are my first "go to" pens.





I've had this stamp for a while and never used her so thought I would use it on a card for my younger daughter.  March and April are busy birthday months in our family but once they're over I can relax a bit and make at my leisure.  I haven't been able to make a Mother's Day card this year either - I think it's because I always take so long chosing a layout - it seems to take me longer to do that than colour up the image!

Anyway, this one is Stamping Bella Ava Loves to Celebrate cut out on a Fancy Squares die by LDRS from Noor Design. There's a Sue Wilson die in there, a Martha Stewart punch and lots of flowers and pearls.  I've also put lots of glitter glue on the hem and bodice of the dress.



So, if you'd like to pop over to As You Like It you'll be able to see the lovely projects from the rest of the team.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Penny Black at Allsorts - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky - Flowers
The Ribbon Girl - Any Image
Paper Shelter - Birthday Girl
Inky Chicks - Flowers 

Thank you for visiting and I love reading any comments you may leave.

  11. Fantastic card - I love the image, card design and your gorgeous colour combo. I thought I was the only person who coloured an image more than once, and it takes me a long time to decide on papers and layout - so glad to know there's someone else like me...!!! Thank you for joining us at Fab'n Funky.
