Bellarific Friday entry May 27


The challenge from Stampin' Bella this week was to use Kraft, Green and Navy. Mission accomplished! The navy background paper is from my stash. I picked up this Bella stamp of houses at the Paper Pickle when they had their sale. Wasn't sure what I was going to use it for - Christmas?..if I added snow?....House warming if someone moves???? But then a friend had a baby boy and and the phrase "There's a new boy in the neighbourhood" popped into my mind and I immediately thought of this stamp. It's stamped on watercolour paper with black Memento ink and then coloured with water colour pencils and blended. I haven't used the water colour pencils in months - OK, confession, I forgot I had them!! I think I prefer my Prismacolor pencils or Tombow markers for such tiny details but live and learn. The picket fence border is Martha Stewart and I computer generated the title in WORD and I was pleasantly surprised at how well the green lettering and the green c/s matched. The baby stamp is one I picked up at Michael's I think.
