Belli Challenge #2

Have you played with your rub ons yet? I dare you to try Chrissy's Belli Challenge #2 this week. Pull out your rub ons and create a card. This card here shows you just how easy it is. There is absolutely NO stamping on this card at all!

Yup, you read right - NO stamping. That is all paper, ribbons, and rub ons!

I created this card using the sketch (TSSC2) found at Technostamper's Blog. Now, since I'm not a foo foo girl, I broke it down and simplified it for my own style. I free-handed the 1/4 circle out of Lilac designer paper, and I noticed that this particular flower rub on matched the paper pretty well. I just cut out a circle big enough for the flower, rubbed it onto the Lilac cs with the popsicle stick (provided with the sheets of rub ons), and peeled off the top paper very carefully. I had to do a little squeal of excitement - it looks so purrrrrrty! Then I thought, hmm, it needs a little sentiment, so I looked on the sheet of black rub ons and found the "just because." Perfect. (With this set of rub ons, you get 4 sheets - white, black, chocolate chip, and old olive.) I just added the little Lilac dots around the circle for a little extra pop, and that's it. Clean and simple!

So what are you waiting for? Go rub!! :-)

Stamps - NONE!!!
Ink - Lovely Lilac marker (for the dots in the corners)
CS - Lovely Lilac, Shimmery White, Basic Gray, Lovely Lilac DP
Other - Love & Happiness Rub Ons (new SAB freebie starting on Friday!!), Basic Gray Taffeta ribbon
