Belli Challenge #80 - Flourishes


It's time for another Belli Challenge! This week's challenge is flourishes. I've got this one covered! My patterned paper has flourishes, my chipboard piece is a flourish AND it's stamped with flourishes, my stamped image has flourishes AND my sentiment not only has flourishes, but it's from Flourishes' Flourished Words set! I used Mercy's MTSC50 sketch from last week as my starting point. The patterned papers are Stampin' UP!'s Razzle Dazzle collection and the flower stamp is from the set of the same name. The card stock is all SU's current In Colors.

I colored my stamp with the In Colors markers in Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry, plus Old Olive for the stems, and then I went over my flowers with a clear Spica marker and added yellow rhinestones to the center of each one. I used a Fiskars border punch to punch the edge of the Melon Mambo cardstock and then used the little flower pieces up in the right corner, with pink rhinestones added to the centers of both the positive and negative flowers.

BIG news - we are looking for a few new members to add to the Belli Challenge design team! If you're interested in applying, please check out yesterday's post over on the Belli blog. Submissions for the design team are due by January 3, 2010 - we hope you'll apply!

Please be sure to visit the other Belli girls' blogs and see what they have done this week (links to their blogs are over on the left sidebar)! Also be sure to see what our guest designer, my fellow Krafty Kat, Jenny Gropp, has created for this week's challenge.

To play along with us, create a card or project using flourishes, share your link with us using Mr Linky on today's Belli blog post. If you post to SCS or PCP or any other online gallery please use keyword CBC80 so we can find it.
