Bella Color Challenges #30 & 32...

Good morning, it's Saturday and the sun is shining!!!! :D Well I finally completed two of the three Bella Color Challenges that I am behind on. On Bella Color Challenge #30 Sparkle chose the colors Buttercup, Crystal Blue and Lilac Mist. Well the first thing I did was color my Bella image. I like to work backwards, most people pick out their paper first and then color their image, but not me! So I used some Prisma coloring pencils and a Buttercup CTMH Marker to color Eloise Greengrass in. I have wanted this stamp set for so long, she is just too cute!!! Well once I got my paper out I realized all the colors were a little too dark. So instead of using Lilac Mist I went with Petal. I used a bit of B&T paper from the Garden Party paper pack. For the piece of Buttercup CS I ran it through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder {love it}!!!! Once I taped those two pieces on my card base I found some American Crafts Ribbon that went perfectly with it, and plus it had polk-a-dots on it, so how could I go wrong?!?!?! :D Now I wanted to use my NEW nestabilities that I have probably had for over a month and just barely used them last night. I cut a piece of Crystal Blue CS and embossed it. I then taped my image to the Crystal Blue CS and added some dew drops to the corners and pop dotted it onto my card base. Now that I am looking at the card I probably should have used some stickles, and I may just do that to give her some sparkle!!!! :D

Stamps: Eloise Greengrass & Thank You Fairy Much (Stampingbella) Paper: Buttercup, Crystal Blue & White Daisy CS, & Paper Garden B&T (CTMH) Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black Ink, Prisma Coloring Pencils & Buttercup Marker (CTMH) Accents: American Crafts Ribbon, Dew Drops, 3-D Foam Squares & CB Swiss Dots


So this next card is for Bella Color Challenge #32. Sparkle chose the colors Moonstruck, Cranberry & Dutch Blue. I had just gotten my Beerafella stamp set the other day and just had to ink him up. I colored him in using Prisma coloring pencils, Copic Marker & CTMH Moonstruck Marker. I layered him on a piece of Dutch Blue CS and put him to the side. My card is a 5" square card. I layered the base with Moonstruck CS. I then ran a piece of Cranberry CS through my Cuttlebug using the Happy Birthday folder and layered it on top of the Moonstruck CS. I added some 3-D Foam Squares to my image and layered him on top of the Cranberry CS. On the left side of the Cranberry CS I stamped Happy Birthday in Dutch Blue ink. Then I added two White Daisy Bigger Brads to the bottom right had corner and I called it done! This card will go to my triplet brother. Our birthday is in July, so I have one card down just one more to go!!! :D Thanks for stopping by today!!!! :D

Jenn, these are great! I color first, too! I figure that NO MATTER what colors I use, I'll have paper to match, right?

Stacy said...

Triplet brother? Wow!
Love the cards, and so glad you found some scrap time this weekend. I am praying that my kiddos got to bed early tonight so I can sneak into my craft room for awhile!!

Stacey said...

Aww, lovin' the bella stamps! I've asked for Eloise for my birthday (2 weeks to go - yay!), fingers crossed I get her! ~x~

Wonderful cards - love them both for different reasons...but love them just the same. The masculine is amazing and perfect guy card. The fairy is is just too precious with the textured background and so beautifully colored!

It's so fun to see someone else have to 'catch up' on the bella challenges as well ^_~ I guess we had the same idea this weekend, lol!
