Bellariffic Friday July 10

I love Bellariffic Fridays. It has really inspired my creativity. I love seeing all the amazingly beautiful submissions from all the artists around the world on Fridays. All the different interpretations of the layout and the techniques people use. It’s incredible!

I attached the layout design for the challenge in my previous post, and here’s what I came up with:


I love this stamp. It’s one of my favourite Kettos. She’s just so whimsical and cute. Hard to see in the pic, yet again, but there’s very soft pink chalking around the edges of the circle and blue chalk in the middle. I used a white paper flower and coloured it slightly with my Copic BV00 marker. The button in the middle was also coloured with copics. I sanded the button in order for the marker to saturate. It’s not even but I think it looks kinda distressed that way. The paper used is Wisteria, including small bit of paper piecing on her skirt.

I didn’t venture far from the layout, but I love the simple look to it. No sentiment was used because I don’t know what I want to use this card for just yet. I could have put “Hang in there” appropriately, but I don’t know too many people recovering from something at the moment. Barb does have a sore throat, but I think she’ll be fine. Right Barb? Hang in there anyway. And don’t give it back to me or I’ll make you make a card for me.

I had a short but sweet visit from my Aunt Cindy and Uncle Terry today. I showed her all around my craft room and talked non-stop about it all. I wish she could’ve spent more time and create something along with me. Someday! Someday I’ll whisk you away from your home and bring you to my place. And if I win in Vegas, I’ll whisk you away to Ireland and Scotland! So wish me luck!

Well that’s it folks. Talk to ya later!
