CES- feeling the blues.

Afternoon peeps!!!

I was having my bloggy womble this morning and realised I hadn't played along at a challenge I fancied this week which was the CES challenge blogs feeling the blues challenge. and the My Mums craft shop Monochromatic challenge.

I wanted to make my big sister a present to cheer her up because she has had a poop week at work. This little mini- kleenex box I saw on my friend Catherine's blog and I just had to try it because it looked so cute. Thank you catherine,  am addicted!! got another one on the go too hun!!!

I bought my little bumble bee gorjuss girl last week from Funky Kits and was so excited when she arrived.
I stamped her in Faded Jeans distress ink and then heat embossed it. I coloured her up with promarkers in cool greys and duck egg and pastel blue to keep her all monochromatic and matching her to my papers. I think she looks really cute.

I made the little flowers out of an old book page and spritzed it with some crafty notions spray and added some pearl maker pen to the centres while it was wet, the colour of the spray bleeds into the pearl and it looks so pretty.

well, thats me for today  think!!! I am off to see what the little peeps are up to!!!

Thank you for peeking in!! huge hugs Lou xxx
