Random Card - Look It's Bella

Good Morning Friends. I'm starting off early today. I plan to clean up my studio today so I won't have the time sit down and craft or blog until later this evening so I decided to start off early before life gets too busy.

Courtesy of lovely Tracy at "Tracy's Happy Place", I was able to make a card with a Bella image. Tracy sent me a stack of Bella images and well, Tracy you've just enabled me to buy a few of them. Ha!

I colored Bella with Prismacolor Markers and colored her skin with the Prismacolor Pencils. I added SU Crystal Effects to parts of the image to give it a 3D effect. Lemme' tell yah, it's hard to apply the stuff with itty-bitty images like Bella's bikini and shoes.

I'll be heading on vacation again at the end of the week. We're heading out to San Francisco this time. SF is my favorite city. I won't be bringing my craft stuff because there's too much to do in San Francisco and I doubt we'll have to many down times. I'll bring my computer and I'll blog a few pictures while on our trip. We'll be visiting the Winchester House - yah know the one with all the hallways and doors leading to nowhere. That'll be fun. We'll also be heading out to Sausalito. Anyway. . .hope everyone have a beautiful Saturday. It's overcast outside right now. . .I believe it's going to rain today. Yay!

P.S. I forgot to mention. Have you tried using Zig Markers? I got mine on eBay and Peach Bliss is a FABULOUS color for skin color. It makes her look "tan".
