Creative Belli Challenge

The Creative Belli Challenge is sponsored by Peachy Keen Stamps this week. The winner of the challenge will win a Peachy Keen Stamp...Whoohoo!!!! You can find all the details on the Creative Belli Blog. All the Belli girls are using a Peachy Keen stamped image today and the challenge is to use water based markers. In order to blend the colors better, I scribbled some color from the markers onto the ink pad lid and colored this adorable image called Natalee with an aqua painter. Glitter and silver pearls were added to the flowers and primas, Candy Dots, and a die cut leaf branch finished it off.

Stamps: Peachy Keen Natalee
Paper: Riding Hood Red, White, Cherry Hill dp by October Afternoon
Ink: Black Stazon
Markers: Really Rust, Ruby Red, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Apricot Appeal, Blush Blossom
Accessories: Glitter, Silver Pearls, Primas, Candy Dots, Bling, Ribbon, Nestabilities, SU Leaf Die
