Bellariffic Friday - Create your own background

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was to create your own background.  I decided to get "messy" with some embossing paste and reinkers to create mine.  It's the first Friday of the month too, so that means another image on sale for the entire month at 20% off. This month we are featuring Sofia the Sicky.  You'll notice my Sofia has a cast on her right foot - I made this card for my Mum who is recovering from a broken ankle!  Poor Mama!

I stamped the image onto Bella's Bestest paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured it with copics.  To create my background I used a couple of drops of Bashful Blue reinker and mixed it with some embossing paste.  Then I spread it over the Large Polka Dots Stencil and let it dry completely.  Although it's hard to see the texture in the photo, I love how it turned out! 

The paper is Bashful Blue and I stamped the sentiment that comes with the image along a strip at the bottom.  My Mum's favourite colour is blue so this will cheer her up for sure :) 

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 Sketch #18.

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.
