wonderful wednesdays with Kathy Rac- PAMELA the POINSETTIA rubber stamp

Hello Everyone, My name is Kathy Racoosin and I am the host of The 30 Day Coloring Challenge & I am super excited to be back on the Stamping Bella Blog.It’s Day 23. but,  I have cooking on the brain since we have a small crowd coming for Thanksgiving.   Rather than think about coloring I relied on the beautiful coloring on the Stamping Bella packaging (coloured by Elaine of course!) to guide me,  especially with the shading on the petals on the skirt.

wonderful wednesdays with Kathy Rac- PAMELA the POINSETTIA rubber stamp

Coloring a background wasn’t something I wanted to take the time for today so I cut out this sweet chick, TINY TOWNIE PAMELA the POINSETTIA,  and popped her on my card base. Inking up the sentiment and coloring a frame was fast and easy. Wink of stella was added to the skirt and boots

I forgot to mention that I had cut out another skirt before I decided to cut her out. Love me some layers. Before I stuck her down I grabbed my ink blending tool and a stencil and gave my card base a touch of color. Thanks again for Stamping Bella for letting me guest with them this month it’s been super fun. See you next week for my last project. If you live in the US  have a Happy Thanksgiving. Hugs, Kathy
