Blue Fern Studios - April Challenge

I'm a big fan of the Blue Fern Studios chipboard and papers...

and look forward to the challenge - 
the challenge for April is,

See!! Such a fabulous sketch to use with fabulous chipboard and papers!!
So what did I create?


I chose a Blue Fern Studios 'Ombre Dreams - Shannon's Dream' sheet of paper - it is seriously beautiful as it is, so you don't need to do too much to it!
I decided to snip apart the Blue Fern Studios 'Industrial Corner' and then heat embossed it randomly with Lindy's Stamp gang 'Under the Boardwalk' (Raspberry Lemonade, Orange Creamsicle, Poprock Purple and Merry-go-round Green) and used the leftover powders to sprinkle under the vertical strip - looks so pretty!
A little spritzing, here and there with Prima Colour Bloom 'Cotton Candy' and Heidi Swapp 'Coral' Colour shine and I used a 'wipe' to remove the excess so it was soft and delicate.
Of course it needs a little floristry and I love Prima and Manor House Creations flowers - I've used a couple from the 'Something Blue - at the Altar' & 'Velvet Rainbow(pastel)' and assorted MHC ones.
The title chipboard "LOVE" from Blue Fern Studios, the 'Good Vibes' packet -  I dabbed my finger with a little Mont Marte 'Dimension' in Zinc White and while my finger was still wet, I dabbed a little on the flowers, leaves and springs too! I finished the title with some Thickers 'Nutmeg'.

This photo hung in a frame up the stairs of our home till recently...and now will be added into Larissa's album!!
