Belli Challenge-Sketch plus something that moves

FCD Wacky Wednesday post is HERE

The Belli Challenge is all about using stuff you have had ‘around for a while’ PLUS a challenge….The challenge for the next two weeks is a sketch PLUS making a card that has moving parts.  Here is the sketch:

So, I went through all of the possibilities for a moving card- I found a kit of Creative Cuts and More cardstock and cards and die cute that I won in a blog candy over a year ago….and found a ‘flip-flop’ card (is there another name for these?) .  I have stamps by Artistic Outpost that I am wanting to ink up and then I came across some DSP from the Tim Holtz idea-ology collection and just had to use it.

  I made this card for a dear sweet woman who is having a really hard time in her life- the sentiment says it all, doesn’t it?
The image of the bird is by Memory Box and is embossed with Black EP and colored in with Creative Inspirations paints.  The bird was first colored with Copics C3,C5,and C7 and painted over with Angel Dust (see how you can still see the blending right through the paint?). I used Olive Green and Choc Chip for the branch. Dew drops finish the card-three top right and three bottom Lt.
(The Dew Drops I found about 2 years ago on E-bay HERE and still have plenty in many colors).

Hope to see your sketch card plus something that moves- you have two weeks to play- we’d love to see what you create! If you need more inspiration, stop by the other Belli designers- links in my sidebar to the right.

By the way....HERE is a link to the Artistic Outpost Blog- did you know if you make a card with one of their images and post it to their blog, you have a chance to win a free stamp set?  I won in May- how fun- and they have wonderful stamps!

I love this card - I have always liked the flip-flip card, and that paper is gorgeous (I need Tim Holtz paper!) The lace and mesh really give it card a finished look.
