Family Time #2

For those who are new to my blog, Family Time is where one or both of my kids color an image and then I create a card using the same image.
This family time is very, very special. The image we are using is Belle, which is one of the new stamps from Victoria Case for SCACD. The reason this is so special is because this stamp is named after my Annabelle, Belle as I call her most of the time. I am still so touched that Susana named this after Belle, it really melted my heart and now this stamp will always be so special to me.
Here's what Susana said as to why this stamp was named Belle: I hadn't finalized names for my New stamp line and when you showed me a picture of your daughter Belle at her recital that it hit me that from that point forward the ballerina could only be Belle.
Here's the photo I shared with her. This was taken when Belle tried on her costume for her recital. Her first recital is May 30 so I will be sure to share photos from that special day too!

Here's how Belle colored "her stamp"~ (she colored it with colored pencils which is not her norm and she told me that this was going to be her best coloring ever!) She colored it such light, pretty colors that it was hard to photograph but I must say, she did a great job!

And here's my card~

~this photo shows the shimmerz and sparkle~

supplies:
card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
stamps: Belle,
paper: some in my stash,
others: copics, opal shimmerz, diamond stickles, Prima pink dandie flower, SU ticket corner punch, gold dot sparklers,

Both images are great, but Belle's is just absolutely fantastic. And only 4 years old. She is following in your footsteps, every step of them.
BTW, your card is great, love the way that turned out.

Belle is so adorable in her ballet costume! She is such a cutie pie - I can see why Susanna just had to name this image after her. Tell Belle I think her coloring is super (just like her mom's)!

What an adorable card Danni - and the inspiration is even more adorable !!! Brings back all my childhood memories, tutu's, ballet slippers, all that satin and net (my Mom must have spent hours making my tutu's - I never appreciated this as a child sadly)

Debby said...

Well gee thanks for the early morning tear jerker. :-) You have a lovely young daughter who looks incredibly grown up in her ballerina outfit. Her coloring is super! I probably would have done the same thing. Your card is gorgeous. I love the way you did the floor. I probably would have left it white for not knowing what to do. This is very very nice. Cute stamps. Wish my girl was still in to dancing :-( For her now it's all about the electronics.

Nancy said...
