After I received a copy of this Sketch Challenge, I was thumbing through an old Stampinâ Up catalog and saw this Bella and Friends set and thought it would work well if I reversed the sketch. I went with a cluster of clouds instead of a die cut circle element and then stamped Bella onto a strip of vellum. I used a stylus to press the back of the vellum into a foam mat using small circular motions. This pressed the vellum up towards the front of the image and up close gives the look of curly white fur. I colored some grey patches. I stamped a second image onto white CS and colored the balloon and bird and fussy cut them. I added adhesive to my vellum piece behind the balloon and a rolled glue dot behind the dog collar. I adhered the edges of a couple of clouds over the bottom of that panel. I popped up the colored balloon image over the vellum one. I glued on the bird and the hearts. The hearts and balloon have glitter pen on them. Bella has a rhinestone collar.

Very cute! I like how you flipped the sketch for Bella to face the right way. Love this sweet image of the two friends. The hearts and clouds are awesome. The orange & yellow are so bright and cheerful. Thanks for this fun example for the Sketch Challenge!
