Cooking up a Belli Challenge- #137- Recipe

The Creative Belli Challenge for the next two weeks- Feb. 15th- Feb 29th- is a recipe.
We want to see 1) ribbon, 2) Designer papers, 3) colors and 4)gems/pearls

 The DSP is by My Mind's Eye- Stella Rose Mabel 6x6 stack that I have been hoarding.  I punched circles using a Technique Junkies Technique called Collaged Circles (from the Aug/Sept 2011 newsletter). I added in a third color- Pumpkin Pie.
  The great Zenstamping digital image was drawn by a very talented friend Juliet A - her blog is Ballpoint Bliss. I colored the image with Copic markers and added Sakura Gelly Roll pen for accents.  I cut out an additional top wing and added dimensionals. I added Wisped Frames (another Technique Junkies technique) to the die cut.
The sentiment is by Pamela-from Firecracker Designs by Pamela-store is closed- and is called Flight of Fancy
Few Folks have seen a Fairy
But I found this one for you
If you believe with all your might
She'll make your dreams come true.

Apologies for the bad pictures- my computer is still on the Fritz and at Dell being repaired....... 

The Spirit of the Belli Challenge is to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments. I used DSP and an image that have been patiently awaiting their turn to come out of the drawer!

 When you upload your challenge card to any gallery (Splitcoast, Outlawz, CDAC, etc....), please use keyword CBC137

  We have alot of inspiration for you by the DT- and the new Belli has been announced- please check out the Creative Belli Blog for links to the DT cards and to see who the Belli and new Guest  Designer is!

We'd love to have you join us for the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow this card is beautiful too!!!! Love the way you colored the fairy!!!! Awesome work!!!!

Juliet A said...

I love what you did with this image - the popped wing is especially clever! I never would have thought to use it with these colors, but this is a great palette.

I will bow out on the sentiment, though. Pamela did that, not me.
