and welcome to Belles 'n Whistles ChangeaBelles blog hop,
good for you, you have made it to the end!!!
I hope you have been leaving comments along the way, as each member of the team, us guests included, will be giving away the stamp of the winners choice from the new collection, woopie!! In addition, one randomly selected participant will win the ENTIRE NEW RELEASE!! If you've been following along, then you came from Mary Frances's blog And if you haven't been, do you want to play along?? Head on back to the Belles 'n Whistles Blog to start at the beginning!!
All I can say, really, is that I had a blast putting this together.
Oh, you want details? Well, this image is called "Wheeling By" and he is pulling his little wagon on by with the new fish bowl accessory stamp on it. Do you recognize the kitty??? That image is not actually part of this release but is the kitty from 'Cupcake', where Belle is holding a cupcake and the little kitty is wrapping around her leg waiting for crumbs... Too cute!! I though this fishbowl needed an admirer. I freehanded the sidewalk and hilly background and added the adorable sunshine accessory stamp to the top of the image. Everything was coloured in distress inks. I have given it a 3D overhaul with foam dots. The fishbowl was stamped onto a plastic wrapper and then modge podged over the top for a shiny effect.
I've used a mix of papers, K & Company (literature) and MME (stripes), of course, everything was distressed and torn up and ripped with scissors, there's a panel that was punched with a martha stewart border and I added lace and gingham over the top for that little finishing touch. This was quite fun to work with, my son had just received a radio flyer wagon from his grandpa and when he'd see me working on this project, he'd come over and stare at it and ask, "Is that me, mama?" Awwww, such sweet little images...
I hope you've enjoyed the hop, these little cuties will be available for preorder today and shipping is expected to begin next week. Now you will need to head on back to the Belles 'n Whistles blog to let us know just how fabulous the new images are (giggles, I may be slightly biased, lol!!)
Thanks for stopping by,
