Merry Monday Challenge #240!



I really like how my bell-themed card turned out for Colleen's Bell Challenge this week at Merry Monday. The red and blue look so great together as a Christmas card, right?




I started by using an Aqua Painter and swishing come Marina Mist Ink in the background. I know you can't see this in the photo but the ink was swished on Shimmery White Cardstock and the shimmer actually comes through the ink. It is so pretty!




My bells are all stamped with VersaMark Ink and sprinkle with White Embossing Powder. Once the powder was set with my Heat Tool, I used a Dapper Denim Stampin' Write Marker to add darker highlights to each bell. This card came together fairly easy!


I hope you plan on playing along at Merry Monday this week!

  4. Great card! I was so happy to pick up a set last year that had bells in it since I was previously bell-less. Of course now I haven't been playing along with MM. I must rectify that. Also, it took me awhile to figure out that "mist" is part of the name "marina mist" not that SU has sprays.

  7. Very nicely done...your soft painted background almost makes the bells look like they are (moving) ringing!
