Belli Challenge 5 (CBC5) and CPS52

This week's Belli Challenge over at Creating with Chrissy is to use Chipboard on your project. Check it out! I was a guest stamper for her this week, so I've been creating but couldn't share with you until today. Hope you like them! Chrissy gives away a random prize to one lucky participant - just go to her site and leave a comment with a link to your card to enter. If you upload to Splitcoast Stampers, use "CBC5" in your keywords so it's easy to find.

This card also uses this week's layout from Card Positioning Systems - which is CPS #52. I posted the sketch here, or click the links to go to the CPS site.

I just this Hibiscus stamp from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps and I knew I had to use it. I stamped it on shimmery ivory paper in Palette Burnt Umber ink and colored it in with Prismacolor & Copic markers and did some shading with the colorless blender. I wanted it to be pretty bold so I didn't create too many shadows. Think a bright sunny day in Florida where these beauties grow wild outside. {and wouldn't a beautiful sunny day in Florida be nice right about now??}

I cut all the layers to size and stamped the dots, then ripped out the center of the Groovy Guava layer so that the image could show through. I tore it and curled the layers and then rubbed on some more Burnt Umber ink. Diamond Stickles on the stamen of the flower.

I cut the chipboard corner out of a chipboard coaster and smashed it into my Guava ink pad. Then I added some Cinnimon Stickles in a dabby way (dabby???) so that there was not total Stickles coverage over the corner piece.

Complete supply list. Stamps: Hibiscus from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps, Itty Bitty Backgrounds from Stampin' Up!. Paper: Groovy Guava, Blush Blossom and Wild Wasabi cardstock, shimmery ivory cardstock, patterned paper from TAC. Ink: Palette Burnt Umber, Wild Wasabi classic ink. Accessories: Cuttlebug and die, chipboard coaster, sponge, polka dot organdy in peach, Cinnamon and Diamond Stickles, Copic and Prismacolor markers.
