Belli Challenge #124 - Gingham
Hey folks! It's been a while since I played in the Belli Challenges, and I couldn't pass up this one. Today's challenge is all about gingham and I love me some gingham! :-)
I've got a mix of stamp companies on this card, and you might recognize my beloved Fine Gingham backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms on here. I stamped it with olive ink and cut it into smaller strips for this card. The red background is the Embossed Image technique from Technique Junkies, and I've used the Sanded background from Stampin Up on there. The adorable bear holding the sunflower is a new digi from Sweet N Sassy Stamps called Rhubarb's Sunflower.
I colored the bear with Copic markers and then I used the Out of the Nesties box to cut it out with an oval die. I distressed it a little bit with some Walnut Stain ink and a distressing tool. Then I used that same distressing tool on all the other cardstock pieces - it almost looked like it was snowing in here! LOL
Go check out the Belli Challenge and play along with us! We'd love to see what you create!
