BELLI CHALLENGE #51- IT'S ALL ABOUT JOY

It is BELLI CHALLENGE day!!!

What is the Belli Challenge you ask?

Each week, I try to give us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms or homes! With a constant flow of new things coming out, I tend to forget about the other things I have and they quickly become clutter!This weeks, Belli Challenge is to make a project with your INK REFILLS.
Here is what you need to do...
1. Anyone Can Play! Spread the Word! :)
2. Make a completed project with your INK REFILLS - I used them to watercolor but there are several techniques you can use...I was going to try one, but my creative juices were running dry this week. you could use your refills for Polished Stone, watercoloring... and these.... http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/inkspraysmash/

3. Share the link here in the comments linking to my Blog and CBC51. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or Paper Craft Planet or to your Blog, be sure and put CBC51 as the KEYWORD and mention of the challenge - with a link!
4. I will do a drawing and the person whose name I draw will be a BELLI GUEST DESIGNER the third week of February
5. Deadline for entry is Tuesday evening 7 p.m. Central time.
Last week's winner was Shannon Bracken - check her FABULOUS project out HERE. I love lighthouses and blues and her card is so pretty! Be sure to leave her some LOVE! :)


I feel like my MOJO and WOW factor has taken a short break. I am hoping now that some of the stress has passed for now, it will come back...I had big aspirations for this weeks challenge, but I just didn't get around to it, so I used the Ink Refills for thewatercoloring...

Here are the details for this project:

Stamp Set: On the Fly and Fundamental Phrases by SU,

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue, Old Olive, More Mustard, Ruby Red, all Ink Refills! Black Staz On

Cardstock: Brocade Blue, Chocolate Chip, Watercolor Paper

Accessories: Chocolate Chip, Photo, Brass Brads, 1/16th punch

Be sure to check out the FABULOUS Belli Challenge Design Team's creations!!! Leave them a comment! We all LOVE to know what you are thinking about what we create. I know it makes me SMILE when you leave me a comment.
