Here's my take on the challenge!

Bella was stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Neenah cardstock and colored with Copic markers which I'll list below. She took a ride through my Big Kick to be die-cut, stayed in the die, while Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink was sponged lightly around the edges. She was then released and put aside.

The patterned papers are from the old, but beloved, Oh Baby Boy collection by Basic Grey. They were layered and Black Soot Distress ink was sponged on the edges.

Maybe it's her skull barrette or maybe it's her familiars, but I always thought that Bella was the tiniest bit "off" in a slightly wicked way, so I embellished accordingly. Glittery skull tape was added over the yellow checkerboard paper. A Tattered Florals Alterations die was used to die cut the flower from the patterned solidish paper. They were molded a bit and a skull cameo was added to the center. The flower was layered atop some webby, but sparkly Prima trim. Memory Box' Scary Spiders (on sale now!) were die-cut from black cardstock as was a Poppy Stamps' Walking Cat.

Thanks for visiting today!
