It's Bella...

Ok up is Bella!! When I saw Bella on Elaine's blog she made me realise how adorable Bella is so i needed to give her some colour!! So last night whilst waiting on Big Ben striking I decided to make a start.

The papers are from Fancy Pants - Summers End, and I have coloured Bella using my new polychromos...gosh does it take long. I think I am quite happy with how the colouring went apart from Bella's cankles...they look a bit patchy!! I dyed those TH flowers to match the card and added a wee message!!

Hi Fi, feels like I haven't visited your blog in agggges! Putting all the blame on no time over Christmas and only turning the computer on for an hour here and there!

Gorgeous cards you've been showing - love your Sassy girls and yes polychromos do take a long time to colour with, but the results are well worth it judging by this image. It's all the blending that gets me - I'm wearing my paper stumps out!

Hope you have a great 2012, been lovely getting to know you and Abi.


Debbie said...

She is just delightful Fi.
All the best hope you had a great New Year.

Chrissy said...

Pamela said...

Beautiful Fi, you have made a brilliant job with the polychromos. Got mine for Christmas just need to get some stumps and blending solution.

Happy New Year

Wishcraft said...

I love Bella, she's one of my faves :o) Fab papers and flowers too.

I think I've talked hubby into getting me some prismas for my birthday - I've got koh-i-noors and love them, but there aren't enough colours to do whole images, no skin colours or anything. Pencils are so relaxing to colour with aren't they? Lisa x
