Bellariffic Friday - Create Your Own Background

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was to create your own background.  I got out my tiny selection of "mixed media" stuff and got messy but ended up with what I call a "Pretty in Pink" card.

I stamped Flowersbehindmybackabella 2.0 with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics.  For the background I coloured some embossing paste with Dr. Ph Martin's watercolour ink in Cerise, mixed it up and applied it over a floral stencil.  When it was dry I sprayed a light mist of Creme Brulee Cream for some shimmer.  I added a few sequins and some Wink of Stella to her hairband and dress.  Here's a close up of the texture you get with embossing paste and some of the shimmer.

On the inside I used a strip of the background I had left over and the sentiment that comes with the image.  I used the cut it out die for the image and the sentiment - no more fussy cutting! 

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 Mojobella Sketch 19 which you can see on the Stampingbella blog.

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.
