Creative Belli -Fluffy Stuff

Happy Wednesday!

At Creative Belli, we like to encourage you to use what you have.  We probably all have some stash gathering dust; stash that we don't pull out until a challenge comes along that encourages us to go 'spelunking' (cave exploring)!

The kids always say I'm going spelunking when I start to dig into my handbag!  lol  ...but that's another challenge..

Anyhoo, our challenge this week is to use flocking or our Flower Soft (real or faux) and create something fabulous!

Don't have either...do you have styro foam lying around the house?  Faux Flower Soft tutorial HERE!

Stamps:  Lockhart Stamps (lilac in pitcher)
Paper: SU! cs, Kaisercraft dp
Ink:  Copics
Other: Flower Soft, Nesties, Offray ribbon.

I could not get a good picture of this...it's quite lovely IRL. I did have fun playing with this unused Lockhart stamp and getting inky!  

Let the rest of the Belli gals inspire you with their gorgeous creations...

very pretty indeed Maria! I think I have an idea on the picture taking... if you want to hear... I run into this all the time too and on my circle Inky Impression card last week I couldn't get Lili to be as "clear" as I wanted her!!! After the fact, days later... it dawned on me the camera was focusing more on the button because it was on top of a twill bow and higher than my stamped and colored image!!! I wonder if your camera was picking up the bow more than your image here??? Just a thought... I'm going to be watching though because I've run into this before and hope to avoid it in the future because it is so time consuming trying to get the ultimate picture!!! ugh! lol

Really pretty card, Maria - I'd have never thought to use Flower Soft with that image, but it works perfectly! Thanks for the inspiration!

Robin Parker said...

Love the background paper and the sentiment. The flowers look real, good job on the flower soft.

Elena said...

Darsie Bruno said...

oh Maria, this is just gorgeous! Sometimes all you need is 1 paper and a fabulous image to make a spectacular card! You've done that!
Hugs, Darsie
