Belli Challenge #50 - Soul in the Sky

This week's Belli Challenge is to find your old stamps, dust them off, and ink them up again. Since last week we inked up our new stamps, this week we are playing with our beloved yet neglected stamps.

I looked through some of my older stamps, and this hummingbird image cried out to me. It's been a long time since I played with this one from Cornish Heritage Farms. I simply colored it with copic markers and cut it out, then adhered it to some nestability scalloped ovals. The centers of the flowers have a tiny bit of Yellow Stickles in there. This is a nice flat card that will be perfect for mailing to a special someone. Could that be you? Leave a comment on this posting and I will pick a name on Sunday, January 18!! Good luck!!

Play in our challenge this week and use keyword CBC50 if you upload to SCS or PCP. Here's a little more inspiration for you from the other Belli Girls:
