Another Triple - CBC9, WSC39 and CC156

Good Wednesday morning! You know what that means - time for the Belli {emBELLIshment} Challenge at Creating with Chrissy. This week's challenge is to use GLITTER on your cards. Now, you didn't expect me to miss that, did you?!

If you make a card for the Belli Challenge, be sure to post a link in the comments section on Chris's site under the
CBC9 post for a chance to win a random drawing! If you upload to Splitcoast, put CBC9 in the keywords so we can see all the creations at once.

My card also uses Beate's Weekend Sketch #39 (
WSC39) and the Splicoast Color Challenge CC156 - Wild Wasabi, So Saffron and Purely Pomegranate. I had to add in a splash of Chocolate Chip because it just wasn't working without a mat under the So Saffron DP.

I stamped my Boxed Partridge from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps onto Poison Ivory Shimmery Cardstock using Palette Burnt Umber. You can see it a little better in the second photo, but I added glitter to the entire image. I worked with one color at a time, using my Quickie Glue Pen to highlight the area and then adding the appropriate color of glitter. Aside from Dazzling Diamonds, all of the glitter I use is either Art Institute or an Ultra Fine Art Glitter from the LSS.

I used part of the image from Partridge in a Branch to stamp the images onto the Wasabi cardstock on the left and on the Pomegranate strip over the DP. Then I did some sponging on the base card and scuffed the edges with more Wasabi ink to give some depth. The main image is triple matted and added to the card using dimensionals. The So Saffron DP is from the retired Palette O Prints paper pad - I have been hoarding mine!

8 people made my day!:
