Belli Challenge #88 - Color Spray

Happy Wednesday! It's time for another Belli Challenge! This week's challenge is to use color spray - Glimmer Mist, a home made mixture using Perfect Pearls, Walnut Ink sprays, or even airbrushing with your Copic markers - whatever you desire! We also have a sponsor this week - The Stamping Boutique, who provided us with several digital images to use.  My card features an image called First Dance.

My card base is plain brown textured card stock that I covered with a Glimmer Screen template and sprayed with gold PK Glitz Ritzy Ditzy Glitz spray.  It has a LOT of shimmer to it, but I was unsuccessful in my attempts to capture that in a photograph.  My mat layer is black textured card stock with a scalloped border, which I also sprayed with gold spray. 

The image was colored with Copic markers and I used a nubby old washcloth dampened with Colorless Blender and dabbed on their clothes to give them some texture.  I used a black Spica marker to color the music notes and a clear one on the ribbon on her bonnet.  The sentiment is from Flourishes Tag Lines set and while it was still in the die, I sprayed it with the Ritzy Ditzy spray, too.  I wish you could see all the sparkle!

Please be sure to check out what the other Belli Girls have done with their Color Spray and Stamping Boutique images!  If you would like to play along, please leave a link to your project on today's Creative Belli Blog post, or use CBC88 for your keyword if you upload to Splitcoast Stampers or Paper Craft Planet.

A precious little card for this adorable image. I wish photos picked up all the sparkle too, but I know this has to be the cutest!

This is adorable! I love the dark and shimmery background behind the boy and girl image. That scallop mat is so cool with two of the sides being straight and it looks so shimmery. You gotta teach me how you did this photo without the border and backdrop showing!
