It's Friday - and that means Bellariffic Friday!! Today's theme was to use green on your card or use a St. Patrick's Day image and being as I don't have any St. Patrick's day images, green it was! I knew exactly the image I wanted to use too - one I haven't inked up in years - shocking, I know!
You can't get more green than the adorable Turtle Tots Teddy Bear. I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured it with copics, adding some extra shading with pencil crayons and gamsol.
The pattern paper is Echo Park Springtime Seasonal Stripe - perfect as it sure felt like spring this past week! I kept the layout pretty simple with just a bit of grosgrain ribbon and a couple of prima flowers. I wanted to try my hand at the pretty shading around the images and the grass that so many of the Bellababes have perfected. Paula-bella has a great tutorial on grass here and shading around the image here. I think I need a bit more practice and probably should have used the pencil crayons for the grass, not copics! Oh well, I will persevere. Have a great weekend!
