WELCOME TO BLOGABELLA

it’s wonderful wednesdays with.. the amazing MICHELLE SHORT aka THE CARD GROTTO

Hiya sistahs!

I hope you are enjoying Michelle’s samples throughout the month.. I know I AM!!

from Michelle:

Hello there, Michelle here and I am delighted to be back sharing a card as part of Wonderful Wednesday. Today I am using the adorable Nice To See You Petunia stamp set. This is one of the cutest images ever! I adore pigs anyway so of course I love Petunia, but with chicks too? So cute!

Wonderful Wednesdays with MICHELLE SHORT on Stamping Bella blog- stamp used NICE TO SEE YOU PETUNIA

 

 

For my card, I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock and cutting the bottom edge with a scallop rectangle die. Petunia and her pals were then stamped on top using black ink. The image was coloured using Copic Markers. Stamping Bella images are such a pleasure to colour. The sentiment is from the Budding Chick stamp set, I masked off the ‘bud’ portion to leave just the ‘hey’. The Nice To See You Petunia set does come with a cute sentiment but I thought it looked like Petunia and the chicks were saying hey, so went with that 🙂

To put the card together, I took an A2 white card base and added some patterned paper to the front to match the colouring on the image. The image panel was then added on top with foam tape. Thanks so much for popping by today, see you next week!

Thanks so much, Em!

it’s WONDERFUL WEDNESDAYS WITH – MICHELLE SHORT aka the CARD GROTTO!

Another wonderful week of yumminess with Michelle!  I am so happy to have her!

Hello there, Michelle here and I am delighted to be back sharing another project as guest designer with Stamping Bella. I love creating full scene cards and the Tiny Townie Blossom Loves Balloons stamp is perfect for this. Isn’t she just so cute, flying along with her balloons?

Wonderful Wednesdays with MICHELLE SHORT- RUBBER STAMP USED- Tiny Townie BLOSSOM loves BALLOONS

I stamped her on to a panel of white cardstock and then masked her off. I added some cloud masks to the background and then went over the piece with my Copic Airbrush using various shades of blue Copic Markers. I then removed the masks and added some colour and definition to the clouds with grey shades. Blossom and her balloons were also coloured with Copics. The sentiment was stamped to the side with black ink.

Since the image panel has a lot going on, I decided to keep it really simple and just adhere it flat to a black card base. This ensures the focus is kept on the image. Thank you so much for popping by today. See you next Wednesday!
