Scrap The Girls - May Challenge

Haven't had as much time as I'd like to scrap this past week as hubby is away and I've had a lot going on.  This is what I've managed for May Challenges.

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.
