Elisabeth Bell Stamps for SCACD-Alexa

Happy Tuesday! Can you believe it's the second week in August already?! I'm hibernating in my air conditioning, but I did go outside to take this photo! I won't do that again...yuckoo, it's quite thick out there!! :) Well, it's time for another Try It Out Tuesday over on the SCACD store blog, Follow Your Heart! This week our lovely DT leader Suzanne Dean challenged us to use the colors pink, yellow & black.

Yellow is not a color I use much, so this was a real challenge for me! I used this sweet Elisabeth Bell stamp~young Alexa, named in honor of Suzanne's daughter. I used prismas and copics. The striped digi DP is from Summer Driggs~energy collection. Alexa's head and bear are layered (not popped) for dimension. The punched/embossed pink flower is layered on a black flower and hand curled. Look, I used buttons, yay! Used my fav black ribbon and a pretty little charm too. Isn't Alexa the sweetest little image? I love the face...
Ok, let's check the challenges for this little sweetie!
