Twinkling Tuesday Fishy Challenge!

ETA: Oh man, this post is scheduled for Tuesday morning and it is now Monday silly Blogger......oh well, you can read it today and also come back tomorrow and read it again!! lol!!

Good morning and welcome to another Twinkling Tuesday sketch challenge!!
Today's sketch is brought to you by Jack, brother of Madelynn because Madelynn can't do everything ya know!! She's only eight!

If you want to play, hop on over to the home base blog and leave your link so we can all come and look at it! And don't forget to check out the other girl's blogs and their awesome creations!

Here is my interpretation of that cute sketch! I decided to turn it sideways so that I could also use it for the CPS sketch this week! They are sort of the same not really kind of almost different........

It has been said that Jack really likes (and appreciates) paper piercings on cards so I decided to pierce it up on my Bella!! Yes, I got a new Stamping Bella stamp and do you know what she is called??!

Hold onto your hats!!

I bought the new Underwatergoddessabella including sentiment, (good grief....hereinafter know as mermaidabella because be danged if I am typing Underwatergoddessabella including sentiment, every time!!) and she is such a cutie pie!!

I painted up some Maya Road flourishes with my Lime Green Paint dabber and then went over it with my brayer, because no matter how hard I try to get a nice smooth finish, with a paint dabber, it just doesn't happen. So I had the brayer step in and smooth things out quite nicely.

I coloured the "Mermaidabella" with my copics and then used my stickles for her tail , bra and a bit on her hair!

The designer paper that I had worked fabulously with this Bella! It is called Snorkel and Cosmo Cricket makes it! Isn't it just perfect!!?? I popped it up onto Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise cardstock - another fabulous match!!

The star was glistened with the Sakura gel pen and after that I went to town with my Prima hydrangeas and loaded them up with other primas and brads and even a little bit of Hero Arts Gems

I cut out the sentiment, which is included with this Bella, with the Spellbinders flower creations 3 die, and sponged in the center before I removed it from the die.

Here is a close up of some of the embellishments!!

If you want to know about Saturday's stamping class, read on. If not, thanks for looking and feel free to leave me a comment! I'm feeling lonely and need to know how I am doing...........true story....

So, on Saturday, I took a stamping class at Scrapping Great Deals and what a class!! We made FOUR Bella Cards - you can't go wrong with Stamping Bella now can you??!!! And then if you wanted to buy a Stamping Bella stamp, you received 50% off that stamp! So did I buy - you betcha!!!

BUT the most important thing of all, the BEST thing of all - all the new Bella stamps are made with PINK RUBBER!!!l!! I don't know why I am THAT excited but I AM!! I mean c'mon!! it's PINK!!

Kimmie has two of the cards we made up on her blog right here so I am not going to post those two of mine, but I will post the other two at some future date.......

Just so you know, and only if you care, LOL!,whenever I go to a stamping class, I try to make the cards exactly as they make them, and then later, when I make them again, I can switch them up to give them my touch and make them all mine!

Just want to say It was FUN!! It was FABULOUS!! and I'm not getting paid to say that!! darn it....LOL!!
