Jenny Joy - Stamping Bella


Love this new image I got from the latest Stamping Bella release.  The name of it is Jenny Feels Joyful and I think it's so cute, Christmas-sy and perfect for the holidays.  This weeks's challenge at Bellarific Friday is a sketch and at first I didn't really know what to do with the border outside the circle until I took a peek at the Cheery Lynn Designs Italian Flourish die I have in my stash and figured it would work great.  You cannot see all the pretty intracate cuts of the die but the outer border makes some nice scallops for around the circle.
sketch-18-sept-11 copy
I used Copics to colour the image and sorry, I did not write the colours down.  I was surprised at the detail in this image and it took longer to colour than I thought it would but all in all, I was happy with the results.
Supplies:
Image - Funky Kits Mermaid
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink
Dies - CC Designs Stitched Circles BDZ0035, Cheery Lynn Designs Italian Flourish; MFT Blueprints 18

Adorable image that's framed out just perfect! I do love your coloring on the image and can see why it'd take a while to complete too. Love the addition of those jingle bells!

Gorgeous image Marilyn and beautifully coloured - love how you have used the doily behind the image - so often I think I must have a lot of the die cut showing, when this is perfect.
