Bella Challenge June 19

Each week Stamping Bella puts up a challenge for everybody to participate in. This week Paula from Paper Possibilities created a great layout. Here it is:

At first I had no idea what I was going to do for this one. But then the idea came late in the week and I knew just what I would create. Here is my interpretation of the layout:

I really love the bold colours in this one. It’s really funky. I haven’t designed many (see: 1) cards in the 5×5 layout. I really like it though. The only thing that’s held me back is I keep forgetting to pick up envelopes to fit them! I thought since I didn’t have a purpose for this card just yet I could hold on to it and get my ass into Stamping Bella and order them!

The second and third card I made today were both for graduations. One being my sister Katie as she graduated today from a 3 year course at Centennial for Creative Advertising with HONOURSSSSSS!! Way to go Katie! Her card had blonde hair to match.
The second graduation card was requested by my friend Barb who’s daughter is graduating high school next week. I wanted to make it classy looking and also found the perfect sentiment to go on it which is from Lizzie Anne Designs. I love when I bought something long ago that’s been sitting around for a while and find that it fits my card just perfect. Makes me feel like I didn’t waste my money. The ribbon is actually see-through plastic with a really neat design. Also something I bought long ago and haven’t used yet. So it all came together nicely I think.

You can see the reflection of the light on the plastic ribbon actually. I cut the flowers out and popped them up over the border. I also coloured the gown with Lyra pencils and mineral spirits because the black copic marker is too dense when you’re colouring a large object. The rest is done copic markers.

So that was what I did from 4-7 pm today! I enjoyed it though and was happy to get my Bella submission in on time. They’ll all be posted tomorrow and a random winner is picked to win $20! Maybe tomorrow will be my lucky day, huh? If not I’ll save my luck for Vegas next month.

That’s it for today folk(s)! Nighto!!
