Belles 'nd Whistles Design Team Call

Hello lovelies,
I am back!!!
As any Belles 'nd Whistles fan knows,
they are having a design team call,
I think with the time difference between
mainland and Hawiian time,
there is still a chance to whip something up!!

I decided to try my hand this time around and make a project. I have seen a past design team call and just admired the stamps longingly, but I now own some, so there is really no excuse not to try out!! This stamp is called Wishes from the Spring and Cleaning Belles 'nd Whistles release.

I've coloured in distress inks on Neenah CS, cut out the image, shadowed the base image in Faded Jeans and layered them together leaving Belle's hand unadhered so you can see the movement ever so slightly. The paper is Magnolia, sentiment is Stampin' Up, the flower goodies and lace are from my stash, the punches are both Martha Stewart, oak leaf and branch and that fabulous square doily was supplied to me by my dear pal Sue.

OOPS, naughty firefly!!! I had to retake my photos once again after I noticed that!! The pictures are still a bit dim, but they are better than they were, now that I am not literally SHAKING from all the tornado sirens blaring right during my photo shoot!! Mother Nature frightens me, she can be unpredictable!!

Here's another close-up, hopefully you can see the Flowersoft and glittery stuff on the flowers that way. Thanks for looking, it would be my pleasure and an honour to work with the talent over at BnW!!!
Take Care,

Oh man Stephanne! This is GORGEOUS! You make me so anxious to ink up my little cutie also! These colors are WONDERFUL and of course your coloring is FANTABULOUS!!! I love all of your clusters of flowers, ribbon, lace, pearl pins, and is that a square lace doily?!!! Or did you create that yourself?! Cripeys woman! Always a feast for my eyeballs when I visit you here!!!

Of course, I'd wish you luck with BNW call, but I don't need to. Your talent speaks for itself! :)

Love love love it Stephanne! As always!!!

Big Hugs,

Tornado sirens? My dream is to chase a tornado. (As long as it's running away from me, you hear?)
