More is More Bellas

I was going to show you my favorite card from Saturday's Stamp Camp but I am going to try to do a tutorial for it tomorrow so "stay tuned" for that sometime over the weekend. I am having trouble with my ears since I got water in them yesterday. I still can't hear out of them very well so I think I am going to call the doctor in the morning if it isn't better. If I end up going there I may not get the tutorial done so I will keep you posted.

I was talking to Mom today and I said that one good thing about not hearing well is that the house is a lot quieter. LOL. Maybe this isn't such a bad thing after all............just kidding :)

These Bella cards were for a challenge on SCS called More is More. The challenge was to create a card and then duplicate it adding "more". For the 2nd card I added a striped ribbon, eyelets in the corners punched with the ticket corner punch, a "pretties kit flower" and a rhinestone brad.

To color the flower I first pressed it into my River Rock ink pad and then I lightened the color just a bit with my aqua painter. Then I added a little color to the "lines" on the flower (I'm not sure how well you can see this in the picture) with the aqua painter and Old Olive ink.

I think it is almost time for bed...........or should I stamp? Hmmmm......

I like that challenge...great idea to do something twice and add to it the second time. What a great site. Hope your hearing improves...I had a similar problem when I had bronchitis, he said the congestion in my chest was in my tubes and sinus cavity and thats why my ears felt clogged. It still is more annoying then painful.
