Some Animal Lovin' Bella's

Today I made cards with two images from Stamping Bella. These are the first Bella's I've colored and they were so much fun! I just went over and loaded up my cart at their site. Between them and the new releases at The Greeting Farm today, I am SO over my craft budget (budget, what budget??!)!

So, I always thought I was a dog person until I got my cat. I haven't had a cat since I was very young, and I LOVE my cat. She is so sweet and when she crawls onto my lap it's because she wants to be near me unlike my dog who is just checking to see what I was last eating and if I dropped any! This card is for my friend who loves cats in general and mine particularly (she has cat sat while we were on vacation before). I used the stamp Kittycatabella. The DP and the flower are from Prima. I used my Nestabilites to cut out the image and the card stock it's layered on. I colored with Copics:
Skin: E50, E53, R20
Pants:B91, B93, B95
Hair, Cat, and Shirt: E43, E47, E49. Y15, Y17, Y38, YR16. T1, T3, T7, C0, C1.

For my second card I used Dogwalkabella. THE DP is My Minds Eye, the flowers are Prima, and I think the brad in the flower is from Making Memories. I used my white Signo gel pen to make the polka dots on her shirt. The rest is colored with Copics:

Skin: E00, E02, R20
Pants: YG95, G99
Top: BG32, BG34, BG49
Hair: E21,E25,E27,E29
Dogs and Shadows: C1,C3,C5,C7
Flowers: YR65, YR68

Thanks for taking time in your day to visit with me!

These are sooo cute. I love the calico cat and that big orange flower. I really like the greens and torquoises. The coloring on both are just fabulous.

These are two of my favorite cards EVER!! I love your coloring and I can't get over it!! I thought it was paper piecing at first. It's brilliant. I especially love the calico cat on the first and I the shirt of Bella and cloak of dog on the second. Awesome!!
