Creative Belli Challenge #88

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!!! The challenge this 2 weeks is to use color spray! You can use Glimmer Mist or a home made mix...what ever you little heart desires!! Ceal posted a recipe on the Belli blog...check it out!
The sponsor this week is Stamping Boutique and they were sooo kind to provide the DT with such beautiful digi images to play with. Be sure to check out their store...they have such beautiful digi images!!
This sweet little Circus Carousel Horse was colored with copics and sprayed with a mix of Perfect Pearls, water, and Blush Blossom Reinker. I wish my photo was's shimmery and sparkly in real life! The saddle was paper pieced with the background dp and I added silver pearls to some of the dots in the background and across the top. A Spellbinders scalloped border and May Arts Ribbon finish it off.
Stamps: Digi Image from Stamping Boutique
Paper: White, Prism Frosted Kiwi, Mellon Mambo, Basic Grey's Green at Heart
Ink: Blush Blossom
Accessories: Silver Pearls, Perfect Pearls, Nestabilities, Spellbinders Border die, May Arts Ribbon, Copics
