Introducing Flowahbella!

This is her official coming out party - lol! I love this one. I think she is so versatile and just plain cute. The background plum paper is by Prism Papers. Remember a while ago I told you about the samples I got, well, the two plums I used here are some of that. I really like the texture of the paper. I am not sure if it is white core, I did not sand that long, but when I sanded it, it did lighten up a bit, to create a cool looking texture. The background was then stamped with SU Springtime Stems. Then I layered on the Bella on mellow moss and a light plum color (but I did not glue her down yet). She was watercolored and then details were added using some gelly roll pens (sparkle and clear) and some stickles (diamond). Then I layered her on the lighter plum, faux stitched using a ruler and paper piercer as well as a white gelly roll, and then layered her on the background. I then placed the primas around her to get a feel for where I wanted to place them. Then using glue dots I adhered them to the card. I added a gem in the center of each one. Then I adhered Flowahbella using pop dots. Finally, I added the sentiment in the hodgepodge hardware and the little dots on the background using the white gelly roll. I think it is a cute card! I had so much fun playing with her today and I told M I need more Bellas and he said okay, so I will be putting in another Bella order next month I think. *winks* Check back tomorrow for another Bella -- I did the color challenge using one and will photograph her for you tomorrow!

This is too cute! I love it! I am going to have to get my hands on some of these Bella stamps. I've resisted up until this point, but I can't anymore!
