"Belli Challenge #19- Gel Pens"


What is the Belli Challenge you ask? Belli = Embellishments. This weeks challenge is Gel Pens. Either white or another color. My friend Chris hosts a weekly embellishment challenge. To read more about it you can go here. For this weeks challenge I decided to get inspired by the gel pen queen herself, Faith Hofrichter also known as Markie's Mom on SCS. She outlines everything in white or black dots. I didn't think that was really my style but I really like the card I made and maybe I will do this again since it looks pretty cool. I don't want to go overboard though. I can totally see how that can happen. I was getting a little dizzy too while I was making dots, maybe I should have had a margarita while I was making it, the tequila would have canceled out the double vision that I was getting from the dots. LOL
Stamps: Stampendous
Paper: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White

Really cute card. Funny thing is that as soon as I seen it, I knew who you were inspired by without even reading the text!

Perfect! I can't live without my white gel pens. I use one on every single scrapbook page. Maybe I need an intervention....at least to try another color, maybe....I don't know. I like the white.

The dots work great with this! I stalk Ms. Faith as well! Not sure how she does it, but she makes all those dots work! This is a great card and the ribbon really ties it all together!

I like what you did with the dots- but I agree that for some people that is not their style (but you did it well!)
