Sketchy Bittybloom

With so many wonderful new images lately from Stamping Bella, I've been somewhat neglecting my BittyBlooms, so I decided with it being Easter time I needed to ink up my adorable Hydrangea BittyBloom. The Corrosive Challenge Blog has a sketch challenge this week that's just perfect for my image, plus there's a prize for one lucky participant.   :)

I started by stamping Hydrangea BittyBloom with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with copics. I stamped her a second time, coloured the leaves and flower skirt, cut them out and popped them for dimension. For a little bling, I added a dot of Glamour Dust glitter to the center of each flower using my Quickie Glue Pen.

The card base is Baja Blue and I chose patterned papers from Bo Bunny. I really like the colours and the black paper has a gorgeous blue scroll running through it...it's perfectly feminine for the sweet BittyBloom image. 
I added some white ribbon around the card and a pink hydrangea Prima. The flower center and three accents are String of Pearls Baubles from Stamping Bella. 

Em's Bellarific Friday challenge is still going on for this week. Click here to see the inspiration piece. You have until 5pm Thursday, April 16th to email your submission to Em for a chance to win some Bella Bucks!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a cute image Karen and you did a great job coloring her to match that terrific DP you used. Love your glitter bling and I did take a close-up look at that black paper to see the design...very cool! I'm going to have to get me some of those pearls cause they look awesome on that black paper and on the flower! Very nice!
