Craft-Room Challenge - Yellow and Blue make Green

Where did the last two week's go?   I've no idea mind you work has had it's moments and I've found Breeze Bike Rides so guided rides and a big confidence boost.   If you are tempted to get out on two wheels but like me perhaps need a little boost check them out I know I'm very glad to have found them.

New challenge at Craft-Room Challenge starting today, Julia is on her holidays somewhere sunny so we have swapped and it's now my turn to host. I've chosen a Colour theme for you Yellow, Blue and Green.   And that's about it but I am being very rigid you can only use those colours, if your support is not one of them then it can be white and if your stamping is not one it can be black but that it is.   Design Seeds are a great source of inspiration and their bottles image recently gave me the inspiration for my theme.

So what did I make?  A mask something I've not done for a while but the form seemed to suit.   Basic mask shape in a butterfly design, sprayed with Glimmer mists in Yellow and blue round the edges, in places these two merged into green some green spray at the top re-enforced the colour.    Printed paper in keeping with the colour scheme die cut and added along with a couple of yellow flowers and some blue self adhesive pearls.   The cheeks have something I call altered glue.  Basically PVA glue squeezed onto a plastic bag and ep sprinkled over (I used gold/yellow in the scheme)   Once the glue has set heating the ep resting on top allows it to melt onto the glue creating interesting embellishments.   Used here on one side the altered glue has been over painted in blue while the other left gold.

Before moving on to the challenge's I'm sharing this with a word about our sponsor.   For this challenge we have a fab prize of a stamp, paper pad and sheet of images from Crafty Individuals.
