I have been itching to use my new Minivanabella stamp by Stampingbella for some time, and when I saw this sketch, the first thing I though of, was to put the mini van in the little oval. I had to take a little liberty with the sketch layout to make it work, but that's what it's all about right? Inspiration! I bought this stamp because it repesents my little family PERFECTLY!!! There is me, with my sleek & streaked 'do, with baby Isabella in my arms, Kade stuck to my leg, and Sarah skipping along happily alongside! (hubby is parking the SUV, lol) I just couldn't resist! Who I'd send a card like this to, I have no idea, but I love it anyways :D
I may have overdone the brightness & contrast in my edit, but I have just discovered these amazing tools, and cannot believe the difference a little tweak makes to the photo! So, I've lost a little of my shading on the colouring, but it was worth it to lose the shadows :)
I've coloured my little Bella family with Stampin' Write markers, and slathered the mini van in crystal effects to make it look like a brand new shiny Tarago!
And here is Makeeshas sketch...
