A sketch with some bling bling challenge!
This week we have a wonderful sketch by Becky at Pagemaps!
And as if that is not enough we also have a wonderful guest designer at Stuck on U for this week, Debbie Burns. You will find her blog HERE. Thank you so much Debbie for joining us this week, we love love your take on the sketch!
As for me, well I think this is pretty different for me. Something softer with a slight Asian feel to it. The photo is a family shot from 2007. This was my first evening out after I had had my daughter (ok, this may freak some of you out but she was well over a year old, I nursed exclusively so she was "attached" so to speak! LOL!) I got to buy a new dress and a red one to boot! Is wearing red to loud at a wedding? awww who cares, I looked hot! LOL!
Here is a close up of the family...my BIL, Jerrell, Kerri, myself, my Dad (aka, Pop Pop, also known as Russ), Amy, my niece (Kerri's DD) Maddie at about age 7 (who was part of the wedding party), Katie and my Mom (aka, Marco, also known as Linda)
Now for some close ups!
All printed paper was from DCWV's The Far East stack.
All cuts from Storybook.
I used Stickles Glitz for added shine as well as rhinestones.
As this is white core cardstock I used my handy sanding block and distressed all the edges.
I am soooooo sad, you have no idea, that this next detail just did not photograph well, if at all.
And here comes the story....
So because this was a bling challenge, I thought I would add some shine by using my Pearl Ex.
I chose my colors, a chunky bronze and golden yellow and mixed that with a little water in my mini mister sprayers.
Remember that chunky part? Well that wouldn't spray out (and has offically ruined that sprayer)
Ok, next try. I mix golden yellow with a reddy pink. And spill it! ok ok, deep breath. I pick up and funnel it back in using the craft mat...where I knock over the package and spill (thank God closed) bottles onto the floor.
I finish up and put everything away only to realize I want to do more, so I start all over again, minus the mishaps, and add a bit more.
So, the photo frame as well as the large scallop piece have the most beautiful shine to it. A touch that makes this LO lovely in person!
And one last picture for good measure! LOL!
I have to say that this week has been the most smooth moving and project filled week I have had in awhile! It is great to feel a little mojo flowing through the veins!
Have a wonderful weekend all and see you monday with my Cuttlebug Spot project!
