Belli Challenge - Peachy Keen Stamps

Happy Wednesday! Hope your week is going well so far! Today is another Belli Challenge and this week our challenge is to use water based markers - NO Copics! Uggghhh - now that really is a challenge, as I learned the hard way! Our challenge this time is sponsored by Peachy Keen Stamps and the winner will receive a $25 gift certificate from Peachy Keen.

Each of the Belli design team members was provided three Peachy Keen images to choose from for this challenge. I selected Sleeping Teddy and decided to make a baby card with a vintage feel. The designer papers I used are from Graphic 45 (Baby and Bride Collection - Unforgettable) and Stampin' UP! (Juntos). My card layout is based on 2 Red Bananas' sketch from Sunday.

I colored the image with Stampin' UP and Zig Beach House watercolor markers and added some sparkle with a clear Spica pen on the hat, blanket and star. The diaper is covered with Doodlebug Designs flock and I added a Tim Holtz mini safety pin. The ribbon is American Crafts Elements.

Be sure to check out what the other Belli Challenge girls have done with these cute images:


To play along with us, create a card or project using only WATER BASED MARKERS ~ NO COPICS, and share your link with us using Mr Linky below today's Belli Challenge post. We can't wait to see what you come up with! If you post to SCS, PCP or any other online gallery please use keyword CBC72 so we can find it.
