Exciting Times!!


Hi Lovely Blogging Peeps....

I've got some really exciting news to share with you today - well exciting for me!!  At last I can share the secret that I've been asked to do a Guest Spot for Stamping Bella's 'Wonderful Wednesdays With..'!!!  Can you believe?? I'm joining the sistahood for a little while!  I've been a fan of their stamps for years.... they were one of the first companies that I ordered from across the pond..  and my love of their fabulous images is the same now as ever it was - and goes from strength to strength with their fabulous new characters!

I think I've said before that Edna is my very favourite of all Stamping Bella  characters - Edna was my Mum's name so I always think of her while I'm colouring.  And I love how sassy this lady is...  all snuggled up on her (casually thrown on of course!) boa... with sparkly fairy dust flying from her heels!


Card Info:
Die - MFT Stitched Frames
Paper - Authentique Bubble Gum Too
Colouring - Copics
Hair - E25/27/29
Skin - E000/00/11/70, R20
Dress, Boa and Shoes - R81/83/85/56
Wings - RV91
Glitter, Stickles and Sequins

To colour her bubbly hair and her boa, I did lots of tiny C shapes with my Copic pens in the different shades - I think it helps give the illusion of texture.

Then I used the sentiment that's included in the set on the inside of the card... and stamped/fussy cut the crown a second time for an added little extra.


I took lots of photos so you could see this little lady from all angles.... she cries out for attention don't you think??!! hehe!


I'm still having to pinch myself to believe I'm a Guest Designer with my favourite stamp company..  I may just have to go lie down to recover now!! hehe!

Big hugs
