Belli Challenge

Good morning, and happy Wednesday!  Today I'm sharing my card, which I created for the Belli Challenge this week, who just happens to be sponsored by The Stamping Boutique.  I chose to use this beautiful Serenety digital stamp, which is one of the newly released images from The Stamping Boutique.  I colored her with my Copics, and masked the image off to do a colorspray, which is what the Belli Challenge Blog has given us for a challenge this week.  I used my color spritzing tool and markers for this technique, and finished it off with some Bamboo Leaf Shimmerz Spritz for a little added glitz.  Serenity's wings are covered with Dazzling Diamonds glitter for sparkle, and I added yet a little more sparkle to the waist and hem of her gorgeous dress with chunky green glitter.  The flower was made by punching 4 scalloped circles, scrunching the paper up,  sewing it together, and adding the pearl to the center.   The soft green vintage paper is from K&Co.'s  Charlotte Collection.  I was going to us a border on this card, but I liked the printed border of the paper so well that I decided that was enough.  I finished this card off with the pretty satin ribbon, which was a find at my local supercenter, and the half back pearls.   The sketch for this card comes from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, which I flipped to accomodate this large image.   
Be sure to check out all the wonderful DT samples on The Belli Challenge Blog, and upload your creation to play along.   Thank you so much for your visit today!  Wishing you a blessed day filled with happy stamping!

Love ya,
