It's all about the Prezzies...


I have always loved the Stella line of stamps from Stamping Bella and it's been quite some time since I've inked one up... They were feeling a little unloved and begging for me to let them get dirty with ink. 

 
 
This week's Bellatastic Tuesday challenge is all about embracing the white space. We want you to go clean and simple.  I always find clean and simple cards hard to make because I tend to layer things on.  But I embraced the white space after being inspired by this week's Freshly Made Sketch challenge. Because I knew I wanted to use the Stella image called "Stella needs a Prezzie" which is on sale right now.
 
I stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black, embossed it with clear embossing powder and then watercolored it with Tombow Markers.  I then added various colors of Stickles to her lips (Fruit Punch), crown (yellow)  and the presents (Crystal).  A couple of Rhinestones and Stella is all ready for Christmas.
 
Thanks for popping by!! Make sure you head on over to Stamping Bella.  Emily is clearing out a bunch of old stamps to make way for some new ones!!! She's cut the prices like crazy!!!
 
See you tomorrow for Bellarific Friday :-)
