Ava Loves to Celebrate!


Hi Lovelies...

It's time for another fabulous Bellarific Friday...  and we had to create our own background for this one..  which I loved doing!

Stamping Bella USA

I created by background by using Spun Sugar Distress Ink..  I masked two of the corners and blended the ink...  then peeled off the mask and sprinkled with water.  I was really pleased with the delicate effect it gave.

Uptown Girl Ava is one of my favourite images with her fab puff-ball skirt... and I'm loving colouring folds at the moment, so have created lots.  I sprinkled lots of gorgeous glitter onto her petticoat frill, and also on her cake!
