Creative Belli Challenge #113

Welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!! The challenge this two weeks is to use anything that starts with a C on your project!! This can include chipboard, critters, coffee images, coral, candy, Christmas stuff, cats......what ever your little heart desires!!! I created a cityscape and used the celebrate sentiment rub-on!! Be sure to use something old and forgotten from your stash, too...the Belli Challenge is all about using your old stuff and forgotten treasures!!!

This is also for the Cityscapes Are On the Rise Challenge in the Moxie Fab World challenge and a few others:

Clear it Out Tuesday Challenge - use buttons
Ooh La La Creations - it's a man thing
I Did It Challenge - masking
Paper Sundae's Challenge - keep it simple
Pile it On - use green and orange
One Stop Craft Challenge - clean and simple

My card today is a masculine design...the background was created by first, masking off half of the image and brayering Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door Distress inks on the sky. Then the masking was reversed to mask off the sky and Broken China and Pine Needles were brayered on the opposit end to create the water. Rubbernecker's Skyline stamp was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black at the horizon line and the black twine, button, and rub-on sentiment finish it off.

Be sure to stop by the other Belli Girls blogs to see what they made for you today....you will find lots of awesome inspiration!!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast , PCP, Stamp TV or another online gallery be sure to add CBC113 in the keywords section.

Hi Joan, What a great card you have created. It looks so very different from your style I was becoming accustomed to. Am I seeing another side of you? I like it! Just when I thought I would recognize a "Joan" original, you step out with something new!
