Something funky

I'm a bit late, but I think not many people will notice cause we're not all in the same time zone, lol! It's Bellarific Friday, and I am only posting at the end of the day, as I said, it is in Johannesburg, but luckily in lots of other places the day has only just started.

This week our challenge was a sketch, by our very own Dana. If you have seen the sketch you will know that it was a bit of a challenge for me, cause my card does not look a lot like it should. Sometimes I LOVE sketches and sometimes I am SO challenged by them. Anyone else got that little problem?

I used Suzette Ketto for this week's card, and decided on doing something a little different and funky, cause that's exactly what this image is. I coloured her with prisma pencils and blended with sansador (gamsol or grumtine). Then cut the image with nesties and layered it on nesties. I made some distressed embellishments. I like distressing, but I have to be careful not to get too carried away, lol! It is often very useful to distress if you make a mistake!!

That's pretty much it for this post. I am very glad to be home and so looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to. I have not had any time yet to catch up and while I was away absolutely no time to visit any blogs. Can anyone tell I am suffering from withdrawal symptoms. Luckily you can't see me shaking, haha!

Go on over to the Bella blog later and go get inspired by all the stunning entries this week. I get so inspired week after week.

Lastly don't forget the Bella party, contest, hop... it's going to be so much fun.
