Oh yeah, it's here.  Summertime.... and.... Bellarific Friday!  The theme for today is Summertime and this Mo Manning image from Stamping Bella is perfect!

When I coloured Little Umbrella by Mo Manning... I was going for a healthy tanned glow, but by the looks of it, she's on the verge of getting the burn of her life.  But check out those shades... I gave her a dab of Glossy Accents on each lense just to help with the strong effects of the sun.  Safety first.  8)

Now head on over to Bloggabella and check out the amazing talent of the rest of the Bella Babes all decked out in their best Summ Summ Summertime Bella-ness.

Oh my, this is a perfect image for this weeks challenge. Carla, your colouring and shading of her is gorgeous, yes you can see she is getting a bit too much sun! Love the shades with the glossy accents and all your extra details on this. She is one 'hot' chick (or should I say BABE!). Have a great weekend.

Dear CarlaBella,

Your card brought a big smile to my face. That's is just ingenious the way you used that die-cut for the sun and topped it off with the yellow (mustard) colored corduroy button. Lots of detail on your card and may I say I adore the A2 size.

Susan said...

I smiled wide when I opened up this image today :) You did a great job on the 'sunburn'! She's one confident lady, huh? Have a great day in the summer over there, Carla!
