Moody Blue @ MAWTT

Good morning my crafty friends,
Hope you are all well and enjoying the start of spring.

There's a new challenge starting over at
The lovely Debs is hosting the challenge this week and has chosen
and has given us this mood board to get those creative juices flowing
 So we would like to see your blue coloured creations.
I do not find colour themed challenges easy. But at the end of the day it's supposed to be a challenge, and if we found every theme easy it wouldn't be a challenge, would it?

I started by getting all the blue papers out of my scrap box and decided which ones I was going to use. I chose a 'Stamping Bella Uptown Girl' image called 'Victoria and Juliette's Night Out', I do like this image, so many possibilities. This time I decided to paper piece the dresses & the rest of the image was coloured with markers & a little chalk. I used glossy accents on the glasses & blue frantage powder round the image. All layers have been mounted onto a pearly black card which was also used to die cut the border (spellbinder) leaves (MB). The flowers have been die cut/punched (crafts too, friskars punch) out of a vellum and  a mixture of pearls & gems have been added to the centres.

I hope you will join in the challenge this week.
