Good morning everyone and happy hump day!!! Can you believe it's Wednesday already!!??!! I had some time to stamp yesterday and boy did it feel good to make a mess!!! The Belli challenge this week is to use inchies. A few weeks ago my DD Holly and I went to our LSS and found some inchies by Inchie Art, LLC. Their web site is full of products and ideas on how to use inchies.....check it out!!! Anyway, the inchies are museum quality preservation matboard and so easy to color on!!
The Rubbernecker image called Everything Coming Up Carrots, was divided into sections with tape and each image was stamped on an inchie with Memento Tuxedo Black. The images were colored with copics and attached to the black cardstock. The background papers are from Stampin Up! as is the ribbon and the pearls are from Stamper's Dream.
The Belli Challenge was created by Chris (Chrissyd723)Dickinson to inspire us to use the *stuff* lying around our stamping spaces...those long forgotten goodies that we once had to have!! Anyone can play, so get out your scraps, stamps, and embellies!! Check out Chris' blog for details on how to win the challenge!!
Be sure to visit the Belli Design Team Member's blogs to see the beautiful inchie cards they designed!! You will find lots of awesome ideas!!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast or PCP, be sure to add CBC55 in the keywords section.

Tuesday's Color Challenge on Splitcoast
I made another card for the color challenge using the same Rubbernecker stamp I used for the inchies card...I wanted you to see what it looked like in one piece. I am not very good at watercoloring but for some reason I wanted to give it a shot today. The edges were distressed, SU dp was used for the Top Note, the More Mustard background was stamped with the Print Pattern bg stamp, and the Candy Dots were from Taylored Expressions. The Rubbernecker sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and cutout with Nestabilities. The punched flourish, punched scallops, and ribbon finish it off.
Thanks so much for coming to see me today...have a wonderful day!!!
