Can you believe it's Friday!!!! I just can't believe how fast this week flew by. Well, Friday means it's Bellarific Challenge at Stamping Bella. Once again everyone made amazing cards. Linda Heavens came up with this great sketch, and it is unbelievable to see how everyone interprets it.

I decided to use Stella Digs It, and this image comes with a mini as well. I bought new colouring pencils by Brunzel and I love them. They come sharpened already in such a cute box with 4 drawers. I find them more pigmented, and when used with mineral spirits, they don't spread as much as the Lyra's and Prismacolour pencils. You end up getting rich, more opaque colour. I don't know if you can see it but when Paula came to visit us at the store, she introduced us to the clear glaze pen, and man, do I love it. It gives a glossy clear look just like diamond glaze, but is so easy to use in a pen style. Paula also showed me how to add the grass, I am not that good at it, but I will keep on trying. The Paper is from My Minds Eye .

Well, that's it short and sweet.

Thanks for visiting. I would love to hear from you.

Have a great weekend

Great card, Nicky! I think your grass looks perfect and I love " Stella digs it" - she's my kind of girl. Great layout, and fabulous colouring, as usual. Thanks for another super inspiration.

Fabulous card Nicky! LOVE that grass and I'm completely intrigued by the clear glaze pen. Stella is perfectly coloured too! :)

Hi Nicky! What a pretty card. As always, your coloring is superb. I think the grass is perfect too and Carolyn was showing me that pen when we popped in last Saturday and it is really cool! I love that it's in pen style.

Great job as always!
