Something Blue... (well turquoise-y blue actually....)
Here we are - the week has rushed by again and it's time for the next challenge at Totally Gorjuss - this time the requirement is 'something blue'! Soooo I had to try to ignore my pink pens.... dig out the blue ones from their hidey hole... and get colouring!
This time, one of our fabulous sponsors are Bugaboo... and this is the image I chose to use.. it's called Bunny Hot Air... and I hope that's what's in his balloon keeping him afloat! I colouring him with copics and flexmarkers this time, (obviously a little bit of pink had to creep in.... sorry Mary, but a bunny has to have pink ears and nose!)
The paper is from the Echo Park Hello Summer pad, the grass die is from Joy... and the cloud die is from Memory Box. I punched some small flowers that look a bit like narcissus to sit in the grass. The sentiment is done on the PC before the clouds were punched..... then I used glossy accents on the balloon, and sprinkled a whole lotta glitter before it dried! I also used Stickles in crystal around the clouds.. Well.... if I'm not allowed much pink, I just HAVE to have the glitter.... right???
Our other sponsors this time are Quixotic Paperie.... so why don't you get creating a blue card or project... and let us see it soon! Take a wander over to the Totally Gorjuss blog to see what my fab teamies have come up with for more inspiration.
I've also been asked to stay on as a permanent Gorjussette.... it didn't take me long to say 'Yes Please!'
Hope you're all having a good Easter weekend.... and that it's not too cold to enjoy. I went across to Southport yesterday to visit my MIL with my daughter... and we saw lots of big snow drifts across the top of the Pennines... lots of people are still suffering I think. My MIL gets frailer every time we see her... but she enjoyed a nice lunch out in a lovely garden centre (believe it or not the sun shone while we were there so we were really warm through the glass!) and a spot of shopping in shops where we could borrow a wheelchair.
Big hugs, Happy Crafting - and Happy Easter!
