Bella Sketch Challenge

This week's challenge on the Stamping Bella forums was a sketch from Jamie. BSC78 to be exact.

I really wanted to use the LoveBeetle Huggabugg, so even though it made my panel a little shorter than the sketch, I went with it. I pulled my colors from this awesome paper from October Afternoon Detours collection. You'll be seeing some of this paper again this week for Bellariffic Friday. ;)

The sentiment came with Lovey Huggabug, but I thought it was too perfect for this little "bug" car.

I used copics to color in the image. Then I applied crystal effects to the hubcap using these awesome applicators that I bought from Gina K! Let me tell you I have used crystal effects more since I got these applicators a couple weeks ago than I have since I bought the cyrstal effects 3 or 4 years ago! They are awesome. I then added some star dust stickles to add a little whimsy.

Love it!
