Creative Belli #119 Branches

 For the  Creative Belli Challenge this week, the challenge is to use BRANCHES.

   Her are the rolled flowers I made out of the DSP- I added stickles to the tips for some shimmer:
  My Stamp is by Artistic Outpost and the stamp set is called Bluebird. The DSP is Stella Rose. I used a Technique Junkies technique called Vintage Art. I distressed the edge and added more Distress ink to accent the edge.  Border accent is MS punch and pearls colored with Copic Y23. I added some color highlights with Copics in Blues and browns.

  Pull out your stamps of branches and ink them up, paint your chipboard branches, cut a small branch off a tree in your yard, or cut out some branches from designer papers, whatever tickles your fancy. Have fun adding "branches" to your project!

 The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!

Everyone is welcome to play along! Challenge a stamping friend!! Just follow the theme - use a branch - and add your direct link to the BELLI Challenge -HERE is the link.
