Sweety Silke

This one is for my friend, Silke, who sent me the Sweetybellas STAMP. That's right, the stamp! {thanks Silke!!! BIG Hugs!!}

Truth be told, I've struggled with Bellas a little in the past with coloring them or matching paper to them...something like that. This one, however, seemed to go very smooth! I think it's because I made the card with Silke in mind...

See, that's her on the left with the dark hair in her stylish white capris, with some red sparkle bling ('cuz after all, her name on SCS is sparklegirl), and she's eating her favorite keylime/coconut ice cream. Girl, I had no clue about what color keylime/coconut ice cream could be.....so I looked it up on the internet...really did! Is it white...hope so! That's what I found anyway. {smile} And, that's me on the right in my denim, eating my favorite mint chocolate chip ice cream.

I followed Julee Tilman's Mojo Sketch #39 that she posted yesterday. I colored the image with prisma pencils (blended with Gamsol). The inside of Silke's {hehe, like how I'm calling that one by name?} white capris were outlined with a Warm Grey #1 Copic marker. The "halo" effect around the entire image was done with a Pale Blue Grey Copic marker. Stickles were added to the ice cream and flowers. The circle sentiment and orange mat behind the image are up on dimensionals.

The inside of the card includes a white panel that was sponged in Soft Sky around all four edges. Then I stamped the small flower from SU's Short & Sweet along the bottom edge.

Awww Denise, this is such a sweet card! Love your coloring and the homework you've done to find out the color of Silke's favorite ice cream. I'm sure you will make her day when she receives this. Both ice creams sound yummy! I prefer chocolate though! LOL
Love it!

Have a great day!
