happy cool boy {creative embellishments}

hello scrappy friends!

are you ready to play???

the new challenge at CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS is on and it is a lot of fun this month! and the prize is a $20.00 gift voucher to the CE online store.

here is my take on -


and the challenge is to simply use the inspiration picture and design team member TAMMY’s amazing sketch. you can be inspired by the colors, a small element such as a butterfly , flower, fairy etc. all you need to do is make sure to use 1 element from the picture and combine with the sketch of course.

inspiration picture

and TAMMY's sketch

i was very inspired by the blue and the green on the inspiration picture and the flying petals and decided to create a layout with a lot of boyish elements on it.

for my background i used white cardstock and two different PRIMA marketing masks with TIM HOLTZ distress ink pads - blue and green.

the pattern paper is from MY MIND'S EYE.

i altered the chippies with embossing powders and different colours glitters from SPARKLE N SPRINKLE.

and the rules are pretty simple:
* create a NEW project layout, mini album, tag, card, canvas, etc….as of march 1st 2014. 
* add your entry under CE challenge post to be eligible for the prize. you have until the last day of each month 11:55 pm eastern time to enter. 
* it is required that you mention in your blog post that you are playing along at CREATIVE EMBELLISHMNETS together with a link back to our blog. please make sure to reference our challenge. please no back linking. 
* combining with other challenges is permitted. 
* you DO NOT have to use CE products on your projects.

i can't wait to see your creations!

hugs 'n smiles,

This is brilliant. Love your take on the sketch and that Steampunk hot air balloon was the perfect start to your embellishments - matching his shirt!
