I'm so impressed with myself. I went upstairs at 8:05 after getting my daughter to bed. I knew I wanted to make just one more Bella card last night, and I had all these wonderful Bella images from my friend Stephanie. I also REALLY wanted to use my new Au Chocolat paper which I hadn't even opened yet (for shame - especially since I got it way back in Paris!) I loved this project over at Splitcoast where kathyj30 brayered a sheet of Au Chocolat with cool caribbean ink to get another color, and thought that would be fun!
So, with Au Chocolat in hand, I cut my cardstock, inked up my brayer with Pink Passion and got to work. I layered it on Pink Passion, then had to pick out which Bella to use. For hot pink, we needed to Rock! So, I chose Rockabella. I colored her in (used markers this time...still too lazy!) and then decided she needed some glam...so I pulled out my stickles. Now I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but the glitter seems to get "stuck" in my stickles, and I just get the clear gel coming out sometimes. So I stick in my paper piercer, pull it out, and it works for a second, then gets stuck again. I did this a few times - once even pulling the nozzle top right off! Then, a big spluge came out! Poor Bella!! I used my small watercolor brush to clean her up, and then used that to spread the stickles around more evenly. I had already sponged her edges, so now I just needed to assemble everything - but first, some paper piercing which you can't see. I left my stamp room at 8:36! Phew...just 30 minutes!
I will admit, when I went back up this morning (after sending Phil and Julia off on a bike ride to the Rhine for a picnic!) I added the silver touches.
I just LOVE her glittery jumpsuit, and her electric blue guitar!! Fun, fun, fun!
