Good morning! Today I have "kinibella" to share with you. I just love this image...love her polka dotted bikini and she's so fun to color!
I found out 2 things when making this card:
1. The new SU! In Color "Blushing Bride" is a perfect match to this old SEI paper "Aunt Gerti's Garden".
2. I have a hard time making this DP look good...seems like whatever I make doesn't turn out well, considering how much I love the paper.
Does anyone have any ideas? I wonder if it's because the pattern is so big or what?
Anyway, our challenge this week on Blogabella was to use either Bella or Stella on a card...well, that's easy!
Image: Stamping Bella "kinibella"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, SU! Blushing Bride, SEI "Aunt Gerti's Garden"
Embellies: Cream Satin Ribbon (my stash). Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Light Rose"
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, EK Success 3D Dots
As I said, I had trouble with this card. It did look a bit better after I added the satin ribbon and the crystals. Maybe I need to try a bigger sized card which would show more of the DP? I'm stumped!
Head on over to Blogabella for some eye candy; leave a comment and you have the chance to win some Bella Bucks as well!
Thanks for stopping by; have a good one!
She is so pretty. Your card is beautiful and I love that dp and her bikini. I have gone to 5 1/4x5 1/4 size cards with some of my images.
Very cute card! I like the colors. It may be that that paper needs a bigger format like a scrapbook page. Trouble is, then you wind up covering up the beautiful paper with photos.
Angela, it´s a pretty card.
Great card with lovely colours. I think the problem is that the pattern is too big for a card.
Now I'm going to be singing "she wore an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini" all day!! LOL This is great. I think your pattern paper looks fine behind this image (dots and all)but then I am no designer paper expert! I have a hard time using some of my most favorite dp so I just hoard it **grin**!
Perfect DP to showcase this beach babe and how fun that the new In Color coordinates! The sketch is perfect for this image and that ribbon looks wonderful!!
dam i wished i looked like that! cute card, love the lo!
