On Wednesdays we (the Belli DT) post our cards created for the current Creative Belli Challenge>. Our fearless host and creative leader is Chris Dickson! She posts a challenge that will have you using things you have lying around your stamp rooms or homes! This week the theme is Wheels! You'll see how creative the Belli DT got with this item -- some used stamping wheels, others used stamps where wheels are part of the images!! Check out the cards over on the Creative Belli Blog for inspiration and then join us in the challenge!! Copy the link to to your card (from your blog or SCS or PCP -- use KEYWORD CBC59), and paste it in our Mr. Linky widget on the Belli Blog. A winner will be drawn from all the entries and that lucky person will be our next Guest Designer!! For my card, I used a stamping wheel called "Sunflowers" from Clearsnap (they have some really cool wheels if you're in to those!). I rolled it in Versafine Onyx Black ink then sprinkled it with clear EP. I colored in the flowers with copics and trimmed it down to make a border. Used one of the extra flowers made from the wheel as an accent piece on the corner of the card. The black swirly frame was made with my Cricut and the Home Accents Solutions Cartridge. It's a 4-1/2" frame. I embellished the frame with some gold sequins. The butterfly is cut out and mounted on dimensionals. I sponged the orange layer with Chocolate Chip ink and layered it onto Kiwi Kiss CS. And I'm thinking that's it... Thanks for checking in!!
