Stamping Bella Challenge

Wow, I did a few challenges this is my entry for Stamping Bella's Bellarific Friday challenge. The theme was "Pop It Up" and from another great Canadian stamp company!

This sweet image is called "Everyday Princess", by Christy Croll. She seemed a bit rebellious, so I paired her with Close To My Heart's Sweetheart patterned paper and coordinating cardstock.

My background mat is Tulip cardstock; then Colonial White; and then patterned paper for the top layer. The reverse side of the black patterned paper is the same I used on the pop up portion of her skirt and on the scalloped border.

I used my Edge Distresser on the Colonial White layers to add more interest to the card. The pink layers are Blush cardstock. I coloured the image with my Copic markers using shades of grey and pinks, since these seem to be the colours my 13 year old daughter are wearing. She is a bit rebellious these days, so this is my ode to her this week.

Finally, I added some black Opaque gems; Clear Sparkles and butcher's twine to finish off this card. You can also see it alongside other entries on the Stamping Bella Blog today.
