And yes, I haven't quite yet been able to walk away from my watercoloring... but ***gasp** I'm down to one piece of watercolor paper, so I'm going to have to let go soon.
**Don't forget that I'm running a challenge with Blog Candy right now - you'll find all the details here - I'm using both the Beloved Paper and watercoloring here on my project! Since nobody has decided to play along yet, maybe I need to up the ante. I'm going to add a pack of Beloved paper... who knows what else.... stay tuned!**
This week's theme for Bellariffic Friday is Lovey Dovey - and guess why... Stamping Bella is going to have a Valentines Release on Friday!
I'm thrilled about all of this news, because obviously that's the sort of stampy theme I've been enjoying lately! Be sure to send your Lovey Dovey Stamping Bella samples to Emily by Thursday at 5pm EST. You can read all the details on this post.
I used the Mojo Monday 121 Sketch from this week, its been too long since I'd played along. And the sketch this week was JUST right for my Lovey Hugabugg. Have you seen the full line of Hugabuggs yet? I think they are just soooooo cute!
My new best friend a.k.a. sewing machine got a workout on this card, and I'll just say that sewing around the rounded corners of the panel proved more difficult than sewing around an entire circle... who knew? Oh well...
For the circular embellishment in the sketch, I reached for my new pack of Maya Road chipboard, fun stuff! I covered it with patterned paper, then sanded all the edges and gave each piece a heavy coat of Crackle Accents. I was worried I'd hate the crackle once it was done, but I ended up loving it.
Don't forget to add your card to this week's roundup for Stamping Bella, after all, she'll be giving away Bella bucks, and didn't I just mention a new release! Now, Get Stamping!!
