The Beautiful Bella

Another image that I LOVE - Bella Bunting from Sugar Nellie.  She has been coloured with my Polychromos again.....the dress, bunting, socks and shoes were coloured by torch light during a powercut but I'm happy with how they turned out.  They've been cut and layered to give a 3d effect, although the photo doesn't show that very clearly.  And I now have flesh coloured pencils!

The papers are from Basic Grey Marjolaine pad, with a Crafts Too embossing folder.  When I saw the colour combo for the SugarNellie Facebook challenge (green, blue and white), I immediate thought I'd be using my beloved First Edition Up, Up and Away papers, but then Bella had other ideas and advised me that she thought these papers suited her better! 

I've used scrim for the first time - I've used it across the centre of the card and some to make a subtle flower - great as it's still fairly flat!  I LOVE This stuff!
