Ketto Kisses

Happy Bellarific Friday!

Here's my submission for this week's sketch, provided by the talented Lindabella.

Poor little Madeline Ketto has been in my collection since the Kettos were released but hasn't seen any ink yet, so this was the perfect sketch for her! First thing I did was trim my white panel to the size I wanted, then I stamped Madeline with Memento Tuxedo Black. I stamped her a second time so I could pop her dress for dimension. She's coloured with copics and I used my clear glaze pen on her wings, but then I wondered if a little glitter would stick. Well it does, and I managed to spill out a pile of glitter so her wings are completely covered...not really the look I was going for but I still like it.

I was in a total "bright colours" mood so I chose some American Crafts paper to work with. The layers are all stitched and I tucked the sentiment under the image panel before added the row of green scalloped paper. A little bright green ribbon from my stash and three Baby Blue Bella Bonbons finish the card nicely.

Don't forget to pop over to Bloggabella and see all the submissions for this week's challenge. It's always so much fun to see what everyone comes up with! Oh...and how about that release yesterday...awesome!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Karen, your blog is so very amazing. I'm sorry to gush, but it's like looking through a magazine. I appreciate your detailed ingredients as well. THEN I find out we have a little in common (marching band). I always admired the french horn players. I played flute and sophomore year played cymbals. (I thought the percussion section was cooler :)_ )LOL. Thanks for sharing your lovely cards.
