The Scrap the Girls challenge for this month was to use this colour palette. I loved these colours. They are so fresh and very girly. I used Bo Bunny October Afternoon and Bella pp's, and added a cluster of girly embellies.
Challenge Heaven- Ebony & Ivory
This challenge was a bit of a struggle for me as you could only use black OR white with yellow. Found all my yellow stash, then was stumped. I left it out and fiddled with it for a few days and this is what I came up with. I used a white background with a yellow floral overlay then added various strips of pp's lace and ribbon. The doily and the Prima flower softened the photo, then added a touch of bling and the cuttlebug butterfly.
Stuck Sketches - May 1st Challenge
This was the 1st sketch for this month at Stuck Sketches.
This is my take on this month's sketch. I took a gorgeous pic of DH whilst on holidays at Christmas. The reason I say gorgeous is he's actually smiling and I love his smile. He always has this serious face when I take pics of him, so I don't have many where he's smiling.
I ended up using a few techniques on this LO. I misted, stamped and crumpled the kraft cs. The red cs I used a script embossing folder and inked the edges for a grungy look. I punched the pp with an EK Success Fleur de Lis border punch and distressed the edges and then stamped the large flourishes with a Prima stamp in teal paper, add a few embellies & rubons, then inked around the background paper to soften the black and tie in with brown tones.
