Thought it was time to use my sadly neglected Bellas of late.Especially Goodluckabella as she's not even been used.
This was a good luck card for one of my Body Combat buddies who was going through a big op on Friday.She's doing well and should be home soon.

Goodluckabella is coloured with Promarkers.I've used my Marvy Puffy Velvet markers (at long last!) on the shamrocks to give some texture. (The white works great on the FF stamp with the baby bear in the nappy as it makes the nappy feel like a
PP is K&Co Blue Awning as is the die cut circle with the sentiment in the middle. Sentiment is Stamping Bella.Lace ribbon is from stash.SU blue grosgrain ribbon and pearls from Stamping Bella.

Wedding Canvas

I thought it was about time I uploaded a scrapbook page as I haven't done so for a while.Well it's not even just a page,but a canvas. This was a wedding canvas I did for my class tonight. The swirls were piping cord and then coated the lot with white acrylic paint.The paper below the photo and that the little pocket is made from, is vellum with a lovely flock effect flower on it. The pins through the large organza bow were hand made using headpins,pearls and crystals.The title was cut from white pearl card on the Pazzles. The picture is of my great aunt who got married in 1931. I absolutely love the styles from back then and so wanted to use this picture.
