Bellariffic Friday - Colour Challenge


It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we had our first Colour Challenge of 2015 and what a gorgeous photo it is! 
 
 
I think I managed to use all of the colours in my card  :) and I used Uptown Girl Madison Has A Margarita as my image.  


I stamped Madison onto Bella's Bestest paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her with copics.  I kept the layout pretty simple with just a scallop border and the sentiment stamped onto a vellum banner.  The polka dot background was done with a large polka dot stencil that I embossed and then sponged over with some Salty Ocean distress ink.  I added some Wink of Stella to the trim on her dress and a layer of crystal effects to her drink for some shine.


On the inside I mimicked the front with the colours and scallop border and then stamped Madison again in the corner with a lighter ink.

Be sure to check out the rest of the BellaBabes and the Sistah's cards for this week on Blogabella.  Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is another sketch.
 
 
We hope you'll get stamping with us.  It's easy to play along - just ink up any current (check the website) Stamping Bella image, and email your card to Emily by next Thursday for a chance to win some Bella Bucks. 

Cheerio.....Leslie

Beautiful card Leslie. for me this was a hard challenge, I don't normally use these colours much, you did a fantastic job at following the inspiration. Love all the shading in her dress - well done!
