I was playing around with some sample DP, tonight, that I got a while back and made a couple of cute Birthday cards using my poor neglected Bellas.
Have you noticed I've been in a pink mood lately... Not sure where this is coming from but I'll roll with it for a while. I actually started the card with the layout... my own creation... had no idea what image I was gonna put in that circle. Have you every started a card that way? Usually I know what stamp I'm gonnna use but not tonight. That paisley strip is what started this whole card. I ordered some stamps back a couple months ago and the slipped in strips of various dp with the order for free and I so love this strip design.
After getting the layout designed I then started pulling out various stamps and fitting them within the circle punch out. It came down to the bellas... more balloon abella than the others though.
I stamped her in Adirondack pitch black dye ink and then colored her in with my copics but I also decided to do a little paper piecing with her dress. I think she turned out so cute.... and she is just darling peeking through the window with her balloon.
Here is a closeup of her ...
