Hi friends! Today I have a little something new for you. A MojoBella sketch! Emily of Stamping Bella emailed me several months back and asked if I wanted to partner with her for next year's Bellariffic Fridays. I was totally honored and it sounded like such a splendidly fun idea that I said side of things can be overwhelming and super stressful and I love the thought of company owners coming together in a spirit of collaboration rather than competition...just for the joy of this art we all love.
So I'll have a sketch over on Em's blog two Fridays a month in 2016. You'll see larger image panels on the sketches, perfect for all those sweet Stamping Bella images. The first MojoBella sketch debuted this past Friday as a little intro for next year and here's the card I made with the sketch.
I had so much fun pulling out my Prismacolor Pencils and coloring up Tiny Townie Bree Loves Buttercream. I was inspired by the ornaments on our tree this year. Last year rather than going through the boxes and boxes of ornaments we've collected over the years, we bought a new tree and all new ornaments (the shatterproof kind). The boys just love color, so it's a total rainbow of Christmas fun, with colored lights and tons of brightly colored balls and snowflakes
So that was my color inspiration. It's been a LONG time since I colored with prismacolors and gamsol, but there's something so soothing about blending the pencil this way. I really felt like I was connecting with a former self and a simpler time (you know the time before kids LOL), I had a whole lot of fun and of course had to add a bunch of glitter. And I sprinkled in some Frosted Snowfall Sequin Mix (now back in stock and on sale) for accent.
Em will be posting what the bellas and sistahood did with the sketch today... and I can't wait to see all the fun cards. If you use the sketch, I'd love to see what you do with it, whether you use Stamping Bella or Verve or whatever stamps you have. Leave me a link in the comments below and I'll come take a peek. :)

This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
