I Wish I looked so good...

on a bikeabella...seriously I do!! So here you have second ever submission. I am hoping to participate in more challenges but right now I am happy being able to just get one done a week!!

I have had this stamp for ages...seriously, I bought her last summer...and until now she has never been inked. You've probably noticed that I realllllly like watercolouring, it is pretty much the only way I colour my Bellas, who knows, maybe one day I'll try copics...I'm thinking it must be faster. Stamped on Fabriano paper with Memories black ink, I watercoloured her with Cool Caribbean, Certainly Celery and Marigold Morning...why these colours???? They were the awesome colours of this weeks Bellarific Friday challenge. This is the picture Em posted...don't you wish you had dishes like that!!

Back to Bikeabella... I cut out the image and the celery layer using my nestabilities and my Big Shot (I loooove my Big Shot). I also pierced the top left and bottom right corners of the celery layer. The background is cool caribbean which I embossed with the Swiss dots folder. I added some satin celery ribbon and layered the sentiment (stamped in cool caribbean) on Marigold Morning from SU. I put two yellow brads in the centre of the wheels and outlined the spokes with my stardust pen. She almost makes me want to get on my bike.....almost!!
