Challenge #47 - Blue and Silver with Rhinestones or Pearls



Welcome to another week at the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog. This week's sketch challenge is a color and embellishment challenge. We were to use the colors blue and silver and accent with either pearls or rhinestones.

Hope you play along with us this week, because we have a fantastic sponsor! Make sure you check out...


So here is my layout... this picture is of my best friend on her wedding day. My fabulous niece (15 at the time) did the photos and then worked her magic on Photoshop.. I love how she pulled the blue out of his motorcycle and left the rest black and white. Someday I want to grow up and be half as talented as she is!

Supplies: The background paper is from Close to My Heart
Silver - DCVW Metallics Stack
Black and Grey - Bazzill
Blue in the flowers - Coredinations
Flowers were punched with EK Success punches and layered.
Rhinestone Brads - Dollar Store
Rhinestons - Dollar Store
True Love - cut from Cricut - Love from Sweethearts - True - I think Simply Sweet - but not positive .. I did weld them on my Gypsy.
Mats - cut from Lacy Labels.
