Just For Fun: bluebell BITTYBLOOM Bella


Say that 3 times fast! It’s time for another Just For Fun challenge with my partners in crime:  Michele Boyer, Carole Burrage, Julie Campbell and Alli Miles. Everyone starts out with the same main image and patterned paper (two 1/4 sheet pieces – no room for error! LOL!) This month, it was Julie’s turn to pick the patterned paper: Girl Friday from Cosmo Cricket and Alli picked this darling Stamping Bella image: bluebell BITTYBLOOM.


I colored my bluebell with Copic Markers (R37, YR14, BG72, YG95, E00, R20 and W1) and then sponged Antique Linen Distress Ink from Ranger on my edges with Cut & Dry Foam.  You can find Copics and the Rangers items I’ve used at Ellen Hutson.  When I was done coloring, I added some shimmer and glitter to bluebell’s blouse. The glitter is Butterfly Transparent from Art Glitter. 


A new shipment of WhipperSnapper arrived here today, and I couldn’t resist one of Anna‘s gorgeous sentiments from the set, Friendly Expressions. It’s stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento and highlighted with a Clear Spica Glitter Pen.


I stacked a few Prima Flowers and added a button. I’ve been using ZipDry a LOT lately on embellishments like this. There is some room to move while you are laying your card out, but once it’s dry – zippy quick – IT’S STAYING PUT.  The smaller rhinestones are Taylor Twinkles from Taylored Expressions.

I hope you enjoy the Just For Fun samples. I think it’s great to see what everyone does with similar supplies and color schemes. This was fun. SO, fun that I’ll spread the joy. Leave a comment to say HI, and I’ll pick a winner on Friday morning to send this stamp from Stamping Bella to. Have a great day.
