Feelin' blue???


Ummm, not that kinda blue...... how'z about AQUAMARINE kinda blue? Or is that green? Hmmmph! I can never tell. This is just one of those colors that's a little "iffy" for me. Anyhoo, today's Bellarific Friday theme was a COLOR challenge, and the color was AQUAMARINE. I didn't have anything quite this bright but I suppose there are various shades so I'm hopin' this works. Here's my take on it anyway.....

This is "Twinkle Toes Huggabugg" from Stamping Bella. I stamped her onto some of Bella's Bestest Paper and colored her with my Copics. I stitched her to some SU Soft Suede and sponged around the edges with some distress ink. For a little SPAH-KLE, I added some shimmer to her wings with my Gelly Roll pens. I dusted off my EK Success scalloped punches and layered them using a piece of white CS in between. (Gotta stick to my personal challenge and keep using those old products and/or tools!) I added the pretty lace, a few brads and a button to finish it off. Be sure to pop in over at Bloggabella and see all the cool cards made with this pretty color. Next week's Bellarific Friday challenge is EASTER! Here comes Peter Cottontail, Hoppin' down the bunny trail... Hippity Hoppity!!

I'm off to the Strawberry Festival this weekend, where I intend to stuff myself with strawberry shortcake!! YUM! Can't wait! Don't forget my That's Krafty Thursday challenge too! Just link your project below on my TKT #48 post and YOU could be the next Krafty Chick! LOL! Okee dokee, I hope you hens all have a FABBY Friday and WONDERFUL weekend.

  12. Blue, green, aquamarine... I can never tell either.... but it doesn't matter because this card is just too cute! I love the DP and the scalloped edges. And absolutly love the stitching around the circle.... I have a hard enough time stitching a straight line let alone a circle! "sigh"
