We are featuring Sweet Pea Artist Elisabeth Bell this week
and what better image than her
"Kiki With Dolly"?
You will find this lovely stamp over at
the Sweet Pea store by clicking

I have kept this rather simple so as not
to overwhelm this beautiful stamp.


Sweet Pea stamp by Elisabeth Bell 
"Kiki With Dolly"
Petite Ovales Large dies by Spellbinders
Embossing folder by Provo Craft "Large Dots"
Copic markers/airbrush system
Versamark ink
Distress Ink "Stormy Sky"
Corner rounder punch by Creative Memories
tiny blue ribbons handmade

I airbrushed Copic color around image and sponged Distress ink on edges.
I swiped Versamark pad lightly over embossing for contrast.
Airbrushed Copic B05 over white bows for color.

I hope you like it in its simplicity.  I thought the
embossed circle background complemented the
dots in the clothing...what do you think?

Thanks for coming!
