Creative Belli Challenge #126

Hello everyone and welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!!! The challenge this two weeks is to use String. You can use string in a button, make a bird's nest out of it, stem for flowers, tree branches, roof of a house, etc......what ever your little heart desires!! Remember, the spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!

This is the #4 Halloween set for my Grands...6 more to go!! Papers from Stampin Up!, My Minds Eye, and Echo Park were used along with Stamps from Rubbernecker's Halloween Set #1 SKU:743 and Rubbernecker's Halloween Set #3  SKU:475 for the sentiment. The witch, tree, bats, from set 1 and the sentiment from set 3 were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and embossed with clear ep. A circle was punched in a piece of paper, laid over the witch and sponged with really rust for a harvest moon. Baker's Twine was used for the Belli Challenge....it was hand sewn in a zig zag pattern on the patterned paper, tied around the layers and tied onto a ghost charm, and tied into the buttons on the ribbon.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Bearly Mine Challenge - buttons
2. Paper Take Weekly - things with wings (bats)
3. Party Time Tuesdays - ribbon and fibers
4. Sweet Stamps - stitches, real or faux (I did some stitching on the patterned paper with Baker's Twine)
5. Crafty Emma's Challenge - Spooky or Magical

Be sure to stop by the Creative Belli Blog to see what the other Belli Girls 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 CBC126 in the keywords section.


Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!!!
