Bella birthday...

Howdy has been another lovely day today although it was a bit foggy til lunchtime here but still managed to get the washing dried. I have been colouring this little lady back and forth all day today as I needed to get some other stuff done today too...back at work tomorrow. I just love Bella Bunting, she is a great image to practice your colouring. I have been practicing colouring with distress inks with her using some different card that the lovely Elaine sent me...check out her blog here, as she is ace at colouring!! I have coloured this Bella Bunting with copics...wasn't sure which to use as these papers have lots of different colours to tone in but I think I am happy with the pink. The papers are from MME - fine and Dandy collection. I cut out some bunting from the papers to attach to this card too...thought it fitted in quite well and I was having withdrawal symptoms as I have not added one of my flowers for ages...Lisa I hope you have your new die now!!

I think pink suits this card perfectly Fi. Love the cut out bunting, if you hadn't of said I would have thought this was a die. I intended to play with DI's but have too much to get done. Fabulous hun. Hugs Tracy x

Wishcraft said...

Gorgeous card Fi. Love this image, must get her out and colour her again :o) Lovely papers and your bunting is FABBY. Nooo my die hasn't arrived yet, sob sob! Lisa x

Your colouring is fabulous Fi and I agree, the pink works really well. Lovin' the bunting - like Tracy, I would have said it was a die cut! Absolutely gorgeous! The mist came up from the sea here this morning but cleared for a couple of hours this afternoon and it was HOT! Washing dried on the line in an hour and a half! Cold now though and apparently not going to be very good tomorrow, so you've probably picked a good time to go back to work! Hugs, Tracey x

Donna Mosley said...

A little stunner Fi, she's coloured so perfectly. Love the yummy papers and fab bunting you've created. The punch you asked about is McGill Pine. This is it but it's out of stock, sure you can find it elsewhere, got mine at a show.

Your copic colouring is perfect...I very much wish I could master them but alas no!
Loving your choice of colours and the fab papers, the bunting is fabulous!
Bella Bunting is still one of my favourite Sassys.

Thank you for playing in the Sugar Bowl Challenge and good luck.
