Lizzie with Muff, by Elisabeth Bell

I wanted to try something different. I tend to design very bold cards, in colors and papers. I have had a stash of Basic Grey Paper,the Porcelain collection, forever. It is very subdued and I have had a difficult time using it in projects. So, I challenged myself to use it on a card and to color an image that would reflect the colors of the paper. By George I think I have done it. Enter the lovely, Lizzie with Muff. I chose this image from Whiff of Joy. I colored her with Copic markers and popped her up with dimentionals. I added ribbon and pearls. . I used the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge sketch for inspiration. I also participated in the Snow challenge at the Creative Belli Challenge Blog.

I am always intrigued by how the same stamp, when colored differnt ways, can take on such a different look. My challenge to you..take some of your stash and find inspiration:)

Make sure to check out the Elisabeth Bell Digital Store. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next month! You can also keep up on all of the Elisabeth Bell news by checking out her facebook page:)
