From Screen 2 Scrap

July Challenge
This month's FS2S challenge inspiration is the Sherlock Holmes movie poster.  The criteria was to use teal, metal somewhere on your LO and your title in a rectangle.  This was my take on the challenge.  Starting to get more comfortable using paint on my LO's... always worried I will muck it up.  Painted the background in teal then splotched some black paint.  The metal is a soft drink can which I embossed with the new Tim Holtz folder and inked over with Stazon.  Also embossed some black cardstock for a bit of texture.  Used Basic Grey basics for the background with WRMK and Glitz Design pp's.  Finished off with stamping in the corners and machine stitching.
The Colour Room #13

Very girly palette this week.  I only just snapped this pic of Brittany last week.  Used LYB and Pink Paislee pp's for this LO.  Of course I had to add some hand cut elements.  The flowers are from a necklace, believe it or not!!  Decided to use a bit of misting, but had to combine the colours as it was a bit too pale.
