I turned the sketch on its side for this one. I'm sending another box of cookies to Mangler, a friend who's deployed to the Middle East right now. K, so Chefabella isn't holding lots of cookies, but let's just go with it n'k? I was going to do just red, black, and white at first but then I just *had* to add the yellow....yellow is their squadron color so it works :)
I had to do the Bella on Shimmery White cardstock; for some reason the ink runs if I try stamping on Whisper White and then coloring in the image. I was using Prismacolors and got a muddy mess on WW so I switched. I love the Shimmery White anyway!

LOVE the shimmah! What a cute card! You know, I was having that problem with mine (prisma colors and WW) and Julie (JulieHRR) suggested I use Neenah Classic Crest Bright White Cardstock with pigment ink (heatset). I got the paper and WOW, it makes a HUGE difference!!! The WW just doesn't absorb the marker the way this Neenah stuff does....it's really worth a shot. I still haven't figured out the ink thing completely...I use Versafine or Basic Black and they work okay.
WOW, that's a long comment....bottom line...
I love your cards!
