Today is going to be difficult for awhile as this is the first Altered Book Club meeting at the store since my departure there.. I usually attend but since I am not allowed in the store I have planned a road trip with friends and we are going to Landrum, N.C. to check out "One Scrappy Chick". They are having good sales prior to closing the doors. I liked this store and always hate to hear of another scrapbook/stamping/paper crafting store being closed but I understand the reason and wish her God's blessings on her new endeavor.
Back to "Bella". (Rubbernecker stamp "Bella" 210-02) This is lady #3 of the 4 stamps I bought. I hope you like her....slightly different era. Reminds me of the 60's. She is stamped on Neenah Solar White using Momento Tuxedo Black. I colored her with Copic Markers: E000, E01, R02; E11, E13; BG11, BG34, BG45; C2. I distressed the edges with TH Distress Ink "Broken China" using the blending tool. Next I matted her on Glitter paper. The card base is Bazzil "Atlantic". I used an old border stamp from Paper Inspirations called "Ornamental Borders 3" LCS251 and I found it at this website. www.paperinspirations.com/.../LCS251-Ornamental-Borders )
I stamped the border in black next to the right edge of the card and then trimmed the right edge. A ribbon was added (a piece of scrap I found in my stash) that matched the dress and paper and a button out of my button jar. I clipped off the back before glueing the button down with "Fabri Tac". Love this glue. I added a strip of scrapbook paper that I thought matched the mood of the card on the inside to give contrast to the trimmed border.
Please leave a comment if you can as I enjoy the feedback. Three down and one to go.......
