Belli Challenge #75 - Halloween Glitter



This week's Belli Challenge is to use something glittery or sparkly in Halloween colors. What colors spring to mind when you think of Halloween? Black, orange, purple, and green are the colors I associate with Halloween.

We have a wonderful sponsor for the Belli Challenge this week, Shirley's 2 Girls. They provided the Belli Girls with this adorable digi image called Mazie. I colored her with Copic markers, and then added touches of glitter with 4 different bottles of Stickles.

I really wanted to use this spider web embossing folder that Mom gave me, but I had to think about how to make it "pop." I saw the black glitter pen on my table, and had that proverbial "lightbulb" moment. Can you see the glitter in the little embossed grooves of the spider web? :-)

The picture is a little off because I had to tilt it for photographing. I wanted to capture the glitter as well as the spider web embossing.

Go check out what Shirley's 2 Girls has to offer, and then check out what the rest of the Belli Girls created over on the Belli Challenge blog. You're going to love the creativity!
