Blue Fern Studios - May challenge

Blue Fern Studios has a new sketch for May...

This one!!

It is, of course, very beautiful...and this is what I created especially for the challenge!!

My lovely neice, Christine sent me a bunch of photos, and this is one of them! She is pregnant (Sienna has now been born!) so I used the Blue Fern Studios 'Jasmine Collage' designed by Michele Singh to spotlight her belly! The chipboard has been finger dabbed with Viva 3d stamp paint in 'Rosa Metallic' and then a random spot of Finnabair 'Platinum Crackle' - looks really pretty! The Title 'Happy' designed by Janene Meyerowitz was covered in the Platinum Crackle - so you see the raw chipboard in the crackles when it's dry! I love using the backing card from the chipboard behind my's too lovely to toss in the bin!!
Finnabair's ' Heavy Gesso' was swiped over Jamie Doughtery's Bloom stencil 'Criss Cross' - almost across the middle of the page. Some strips of gold embossed paper were adhered vertical and horizontal, along with some white ribbon twine, with a knot in the end!
The drips were created with a combination of Prima Colour Bloom in ' Cotton candy', 'Peony' & Distress stain 'Seedless Preserve' & Dylusions 'Funky Fuchsia', Crushed Grape' and a little Heidi Swapp 'Pink' colour shine!! Concentrated spray and tilt to drip....and a take the lid of to sprinkle (my favourite mess to make!)
Embellishing was easy - couple of Prima flowers (always beautiful!) Couture Creations 'bling flower', some pearl strands and a lace leaf from Tj's Scrapping with Style and the cute little felt hearts in two shades of pink from My2angels.

Lucky to have squeezed some spare time this month - with creating projects for Kaisercraft to display at Retailers Day and CHA....and getting my finalist entry in too! Also been to the two Roundtable days for Art Deco Creations - super fun!!
