Bellarific Friday: Your Best Work!!!

Good morning! This week our challenge at Blogabella was "your best work", so I decided to go with one of the new stamps I received last week "Ilovetoshopabella". At first I was going to go with a Christmas theme, but opted for autumn when I found these pretty papers in my stash.

Bella is colored with Prismas; I did go out of my comfort zone here and shaded around her with a fuschia color. As I was coloring, it looked really dark, but you can barely see it in the photo. I guess I will have to apply a bit more color next time.... The flower is 4 punched flowers combined. I crumpled and sprayed the plaid layers and then rolled them around a pencil to give the petals some lift and dimension. The center is a Bella Dot and the leaf is a scrap of ribbon.

I used Jen del Muro's SFYTT, but I flipped it and switched sides for the embellies.

Image: Stamping Bella
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Selcet and Dark Chocolate, SU! River Rock, All My Memories DP
Embellies: Ribbon (my stash), Bella Dots in "Chocolate", Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in "Vanilla Breeze"
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, EK Success Retro Flower Punches, Spellbinder's Nestabilities

Today is the last day for submitting a card for the chance to be the next Bella Babe. You had to submit a card to Blogabella all 4 Fridays of this month; the winner will be picked in September. There were a LOT of participants!

Thanks for stopping by today; enjoy your day!
