Bellarific Friday and Scrapfest In Kitchener

Got myself a nice cup of Hazelnut coffee beside me to start my Friday morning post.  The kids are off at school, hubby at work and I got a nice quiet house to myself :D

Today is the start of Scrapfest in Kitchener and for those of you  who do not know what Scrapfest is, it's all major Scrapbooking and Craft vendors getting together to show and sell their line of stamps, various mixed media  paints, stencils, markers, stickers, die cuts and many many more items.  For the local sistah's, don't miss it, and be sure to stop by the Stamping Bella booth and say hello to Emily, I'm sure she will be so happy to see you all there.  Also some of the bella babes will be there as well like Lindabella, Paulineabella and Paulabella.  Unfortunately,  I'm unable to go this year due to a sprained ankle :( and I am so sad cause I won't be able to see the babes.  Here is a look back at last years Scrapfest.

Okay, let's get to this weeks Bellariffic Challenge which was a shower card and here is what I created.

Meet Rain Never Stopped Me-abella which also includes the sentiment. I stamped my image on Bellas bestest white paper with Memento black ink and coloured her face, and hair with copic markers. The rest of the image was paper pieced to give it more detail and texture with MME Fine and Dandy True Blue collection and Crate Paper's Restoration Collection.

If you take a close look at the card you will notice rain drops around her and on her umbrella, and this effect was created using small dabs of glossy accents. If you haven't uploaded this weeks cards to SCS site you can still do so with the keyword BELLARIFFIC1412.

Next weeks challenge is another sketch (BELLARIFFIC1512) and this is a fun one with buttons and ribbons. Just email your cards to Emily by next Thursday to enter in a draw to win some Bella bucks.

I'm off to visit the babes blogs to see there creations this week. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Beautiful card Ebru :) I have not seen this stamp, looks like I need to add her to my collection. I just love your mix of patterned paper and the raindrops add such great texture. I love this one :)
